Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of iOS 9 App Development: Text Kit.
- The exercise files for this course are included with your basic Lynda.com membership. If you are a Lynda.com member, you have access to the exercise files used for this title. Copy the exercise files folder to a location where you can find it on your system. I've copied it to the desktop on this system. Wherever you put it, just make sure you can find it. All of the exercise files for this course are in this folder. Most of the exercise files are Xcode projects created with Xcode 7.
As you use each of these files, I suggest you use a working copy, so that you may revert easily back to the original if you need to. To make a working copy of an Xcode project copy the entire folder that contains the project. You may easily create a working copy by holding down the Option key while dragging a file or folder to an empty space in the folder. I usually then rename it to something like -working. Once you've made your working copy, you may open the project with Xcode by double clicking on the .xcode project file within the project folder.
This will open the project in Xcode. When you're done with the exercise you may delete the working copy. Or you may keep it for further study and experimentation. There's also a folder called Assets with the images used in the Xcode projects for this course. For those who are wondering, this photo, which is used in the exclusion paths example is a photo of a Bangkok train station. I took this photo on a recent vacation in Thailand. All of these files are original works that I created, and you're welcome to use any of them in your own projects.
The examples in this course require Xcode version 7 or greater. The exercise files are here to make your learning experience easier and more powerful. Take your time, experiment a lot and happy learning.
