CocoaTouch/iOS is a verbose framework. These extensions hope to make development in rubymotion more enjoyable by tacking “UI” methods onto the base classes (String, Fixnum, Float). With sugarcube, you can create a color from an integer or symbol, or create a UIFont or UIImage from a string.
Some UI classes are opened up as well, like adding the
<< operator to a
UIView instance, instead
view.addSubview(subview), you can use the more idiomatic:
view << subview.
