Since January, I’ve occasionally live streamed Loose Leaf iOS development to YouTube. I even took some time in April to stream and open source a 2D physics game from scratch! It’s been a challenging and fun experience personally, and has more broadly grown into quite a subculture – sites like Watch People Code, Livecoding.tv, and even articles by CNN and Wired show the trend’s recent growth.

It’s the simple things in life: One of the best workflow changes I made for Loose Leaf was to use git to manage the version number of my app. To release a new version, just add a tag in git, and the version in my app’s Info.plist would automatically update to match. There’s a number of different ways to set something like this up, and I’ve pieced my particular strategy together from various Stack Overflow posts, and I thought it’d be helpful to put an end-to-end post together to describes the how and why in 1 place.

For gesture-centric apps, it can be difficult to quickly and easily show how to perform specific gestures. Two handed gestures, like Loose Leaf’s ruler gesture, can be particularly difficult to describe. As I was making tutorial content for Loose Leaf, I quickly realized that showing dots for touch locations just isn’t enough.
