Tumblr iOS architecture ›

bryan:

Some consider the Tumblr iOS app to be a marvel of modern medicine and science. Others find our custom native HTML rendering to be a telltale sign of our insanity. Other others view our staunch avoidance of Core Data migrations as both prudent and educational.

Whichever camp you fall into, you may find something to enjoy in this high-level overview of our iOS application architecture.

But now Twitter is experimenting with a new feature called “retweet with comment” that would better allow users to participate in a conversation, while also providing context and commentary that can otherwise get lost when using the standard Twitter “retweet” function or “quoted tweets.”

Naive Inlines Sans by La Goupil.

Naïve Inline Sans is a handwritten font by Fanny Coulez for La Goupil Paris. The three weights of this new sans serif parisian typography can be enhanced with a bicolor interior, ribbed or full, to improve your designs and bring a feeling more modern and unusual. To do this, you must simply superimpose the 2 elements : the weight above, the interior below. Merci beaucoup!
