About Cocoa

The Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks that power OS X and iOS are tightly integrated into the Xcode development experience. Cocoa’s high-level APIs make it easy to add animation, networking, and the native platform appearance and behavior to your application with only a few lines of code.

The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X. By developing with Cocoa, you will be creating applications the same way OS X itself is created. Your application will automatically inherit the great behaviors and appearances of OS X, with full access to the underlying power of the UNIX operating system. Using Cocoa with the Xcode IDE is simply the best way to create native Mac applications.

Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications.

As your application runs, the Objective-C runtime instantiates objects based on executing logic—not just in ways defined during compilation. For example, a running Objective-C application can load an interface (a nib file created by Interface Builder), connect the Cocoa objects in the interface to your application code, then run the correct method once the UI button is pressed. No recompiling is necessary.
