Something that can be hard to code has been made so simple with this plugin.

SourceKitService Terminated

Software: XCode6-Beta2

Error Message:

SourceKitService Terminated

Editor functionality temporarily limited.

Solution:

Instead of using the editor to type the code that is causing the crash type the code on a different software, copy, and paste it to the right location.

 

Spaces on linkTrackVars

When you us the linkTrackVars make sure that when you provide multiple parameters they are only separated by a comma and that there is spaces between each of the elements.

BAD:

s.linkTrackVars=’prop1, prop2, events’;

GOOD:

s.linkTrackVars=’prop1,prop2,events’;

For some odd reason Adobe has made this implementation part of their best practices but they haven’t highlighted the importance of having it all without spaces between each element.

Writing useful change logs for your application

It takes a while for people to adapt to change and many resist to change due to the adaptation and complexity in integrating these changes may bring to our workflow, ClojureWerkz team posted three questions you should ask when writing a change log:

A useful project change log answers three questions:

Whether it is critical to update

Whether the release is backwards compatible

What has changed and why

A change log that covers these three points will help your users adopt new versions faster, even in some of the most conservative corporate environments. It will also make the ops people respect your project more.

Almost 3 Million users affected by the latest hack to Adobe.

Today Adobe released a bulletin stating that 2.9 million Adobe customer’s data has been stolen from their systems:

Our investigation currently indicates that the attackers accessed Adobe customer IDs and encrypted passwords on our systems. We also believe the attackers removed from our systems certain information relating to 2.9 million Adobe customers, including customer names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, and other information relating to customer orders.

Reading some comments from around the web some people make the argument that with so much money Adobe should not have this kind of issues but the reality is that security is a very complex subject. We do not know details on how the data bridge was performed which it will be interesting to find out in the near future.

This hits close home since currently I am working on an application that requires extra care, specially with user’s data and altho the data can be encrypted there is always the risk of some trying to access data and it only takes decrypting one string in order to get the key to decrypt the rest.
