IOS Development Notes (1) Hello, world!


Hello,World 🙂

For a new language, according to the Convention, we will write a Hello, world! Next, we will start with Xcode installation and complete a simple hello, world application.

Install Xcode

Download and install Xcode through the app store, but sometimes the service of the app store is not stable in China, and the download fails. So if the app store fails to download for many times, you can use Xunlei store to download. However, Xunlei store is suspected of piracy. If you want to update Xcode later, you must download and install again.

Start writing a Hello, world app

Run Xcode from the dock or otherwise.

Then, choose IOS – Application – single view application and next.
The single view application here is a basic single page application template. It will create a simple MVC application. In addition, MVC is a very important design pattern in IOS development.

Procut Name: the name of the app.
Company identifier: if there is a domain name, you can fill it in, otherwise you only need to fill inedu.self
Here is class prefix. I filled in HelloWorld, so our controller class will be namedHelloWorldViewController
The devices option is used to select the appropriate devices. Here are three optionsiPhoneiPadUniversal。 Among them, universal can run on iPhone and iPad, while a universal application has independent UI on iPad and iPhone.
Continue to “next”, Xcode will ask us to choose the saved path. By the way, it is recommended to create a developer folder in the user directory to store Xcode project files.

Click “create”, and then the project is completed.

We can see the newly created project file directory as follows:

HelloWorldAppDelegate.[mh]We don’t have to worry about it here.
Main.storyboardView in our MVC application.
HelloWorldViewController.[mh]Code of controller in MVC.

    [super viewDidLoad];    
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

- (void)didReceiveMemoryWarning
    [super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
