Description Jeff Ward 2013-11-14 17:15:52 UTC
If you're using ObjectiveSharpie to generate code for a number of complex libraries for a project (e.g. you're using CocoaPods) it would be nice to allow each header file to be in a separate C# file.  This would make it so generation could occur on a file by file basis, instead of forcing a full re-generate of the library (which is incredibly time consuming)

step 1 will require that btouch gets fixed to support that, so reassigning to ios team

Step 1 complete: https://github.com/xamarin/maccore/commit/c59b050ce94f19248ab0347d36dfa5167bf7756a

Also the Objective C bindings project lets you have multiple files with a "ObjcBindingApiDefinition" build action and those are all passed to btouch.

Next stop is having sharpie generate more then 1 ApiDefinitions, which I believe is not the case right now.

Reassigning to sharpie and Aaron (correct me if I'm wrong).
