You can find a complete list of all frameworks in the lists below. API Collection Resource Management Manage the storyboards and nib files containing your app’s user interface, and learn how to load data that is stored in resource files.


If your app sets its background or fill colors according to one of the following conditions, AppKit now instead adds the corresponding NSVisual Effect View material:.
