Welcome to the inaugural issue
Hello, my name is Todd Werth, I founded InfiniteRed. We work in RubyMotion everyday on our products and for clients. I created RubyMotionQuery (RMQ) and my co-founder Ken Miller @seriousken created Core Data Query (CDQ).
I felt that the RubyMotion community needed a weekly newsletter. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while, but I never alloc.inited the time. This first issue is a bit rough but I’ll be improving it as I go along. Please let me know what you think, what could be better, what is awesome, etc.
Lastly, contact me with your blog posts, tips, or just to say hi (seriously).
Happy coding, @twerth

In case you missed them
You can use CocoaPods with many Objective-C libraries or components, but many you cannot. I personally prefer not to use CocoaPods if I don’t have to. If you can’t or don’t want to to use CocoaPods you can just vendor the library.
app.vendor_project(‘vendor/XYPieChart’, :static, :cflags => ‘-fobjc-arc’)
What is RubyMotionQuery you ask? Check out this video.
RubyMotionQuery v0.5 will have a big change. If you’ve used RMQ, you may know that you can only use the rmq command inside a UIView or UIViewController. If that view isn’t in the subview tree, you can’t use certain features such as traversing and stylesheets. This is especially problematic in UITableViewCells or UICollectionViewCells because they are not added to the table as a subview when they are created. This will be changed in v0.5.
- rmq.create_factory(MyClassHere) # For tables and collection views
- my_view.rmq_data.view_controller = your_view_controller
I hope to release v0.5 this week or next.
