I know I’m on the minority, but I’ll never stop loving nibs. The amount of complexity that can be encoded in a simple WYSIWYG interface is astounding. It can never be better than doing it all in code for any complex application.

@brunoph I love nibs too, except the part where just opening one marks it as modified. 😏

@steveroy They’ve improved it a lot recently, mostly on iOS though. However I usually manually pick the changes related to my work to commit in Tower and discard unrelated stuff like viewport sizes and etc.

@brunoph They can be done poorly (*cough* massive storyboards *cough*), but they can also be done poorly. Using 1 nib per VC works pretty well: you get the advantages of the nib without encoding _everything_ in one massive file.
