When I began to develop softwares, I searched a powerful framework.
The most powerful I found, was Powerplant from CodeWarrior.
For me in the 2.2 version, it’s the most effective Framework I’ve ever seen.
It lacks of :
Metal Windows (in state of prototype)
and some useful controls (searchfield and comboBox).
To avoid this problem, I rewrite all the core mecanism of Sheet window, drawer Window etc...
You can see the result in some screenshots :
And here is the source code witout the Framework:
I had too to rewrite the navigation service because there was some bugs in the toolbox OS X 10.2.4.
Some visual effects aren’t present for Metal window, it’s possible to develop exactly the same technology but I have to rewrite the control system too (I don’t use the compositing way).
The Metal window hasn’t been finished yet because I developed this technology only in 5 days.
