Useful 3rd Party Extensions to CoreTextWrapper

Our CoreTextWrapper project in Github is certainly popular! Many developers have told us that they find it easier to approach Core Text using it, providing an easy learning path, showing the key concepts with an easy-to-use example.

One of the coolest features of C++ are templates, of which I’ve been drooling in the past. One of the most useful things that templates have brought to C++ are smart pointers, which simplify memory management tremendously; they combine the capacity of C++ to instantiate objects in the stack, the flexibility of heap allocation, and […]
