Toronto designers say ZARA brand copied their work

first_img Login/Register With: Advertisement Advertisement “We did not get any resolution, as their design turnover is so frantic and fast, it was futile for us to try and pursue legal action. Big companies know this, and take full advantage of the little guy. The upside to this is that with all of the designers they ripped off in this case, we have now garnered a collective voice and Zara is getting terrible negative media attention. That is more than we could have wished for. Advertisement Facebook Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment ZARA and its parent company Inditex have been under fire lately for allegedly copying independent designers and artists, including one design duo in Toronto.Crywolf, a boutique at 91 Ossington Ave., posted a note on Facebook and Instagram yesterday detailing how Bershka (an Inditex brand) sold a pin that looked eerily similar to its own Healing Cloud pin (pictured above).“This is not the first time it’s happened to us. We have witnessed other large companies – specifically Forever21 and Urban Outfitters do the same thing to us, and other indie designers,” Crywolf co-founders Rose Chang and Stephanie Drabik tell me via email.last_img read more

Dont Expect to See a Triple Crown Anytime Soon

The owner of California Chrome, which failed in his Triple Crown quest Saturday at the Belmont Stakes, had some controversial things to say about how it’s “not fair” that a lot of Chrome’s Belmont competitors didn’t run in the Kentucky Derby and/or the Preakness Stakes.But California Chrome’s loss should surprise no one. This is the new normal.California Chrome is now the 13th horse to have won the first two races but failed to win the Belmont since Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978. Of the 13, one was scratched the day of the race, and eight lost to horses that didn’t even run in the Preakness.Having a number of “fresh” horses in the Belmont field was common in the era leading up to Affirmed’s Triple Crown, though perhaps a little less so. But the extent that these horses have been dominating in the Belmont is just one aspect of a bigger issue.Of the 23 horses that won the Preakness and not the Derby since 1979, just five won the Belmont (the last to do so was Afleet Alex in 2005). And of the 23 that won the Derby but not the Preakness, just two won the Belmont: Swale in 1984 and Thunder Gulch in 1995. In total, 59 horses have won either the Derby or the Preakness or both since 1979, and of those, just seven have won the Belmont.The main thing that separates the Belmont from the other two races is its length: At 1.5 miles (or 2.4 kilometers, or 12 furlongs), it’s over a quarter-mile longer than either the Derby or the Preakness. This distance has become increasingly rare in American horse-racing over time, to the point where almost all horses entering the Belmont these days have never raced it. Even highly experienced trainers may not have much experience with it. One trainer has come across Belmont’s extra distance only one in every 1,000 races.Belmont is billed as the “Test of the Champion” — kind of like a final exam for a horse to prove itself the most worthy — but in reality it’s more like a test of a deliberately different skill set: i.e., 1.5 miles is to 1.25 miles as the SAT Math section is to the SAT Verbal.The Triple Crown races weren’t always different types of tests. In the late 1800s, all three were 1.5 miles. The Derby switched to 1.25 miles in 1896, while the Preakness experimented with a number of different lengths between 1894 and 1923 before settling on 1.1875 miles (or 9.5 furlongs) in 1924. The Belmont was actually the first to abandon the longer distance, switching to 1.25 miles in 1890, but it switched back for good in 1926.For at least a half-century after the distances were settled, the three legs of the Triple Crown seemed about equally likely to be won by a horse that would (or did) win one of the others. But since 1979, the short track/long track divide has become huge, and the 13 failed Triple Crown attempts are just part of the story.Between 1926 and 1978, of the 20 horses that won the Derby and Preakness, 10 of them won the Belmont — since 1979 those horses are zero for 13. Between 1926 and 1978, 33 Belmont Stakes included no horse that won both precursors, and of those 33 races, 14 were won by a horse that had won one of the prior Crown races (21 percent of the 66 such horses). Since 1979, there have been 23 years where no horse won both precursors, and just seven Belmonts were won by a horse that had won one precursor (15 percent of 46 such horses).We can compare those rates to the Belmont odds for horses that won neither the Derby nor the Preakness. This is a little difficult, because field sizes vary and often have a number of serious long-shots in them, so I’ve made this comparison based on an assumed pool of six “competitive” horses per race. Thus we can see how a horse’s performance in the precursors has affected its chances of winning the Belmont:As you can see, the odds drop significantly for horses with one win on the shorter tracks going in, and completely for horses with two wins. As a natural result, the odds of winning the Belmont for a horse with zero wins in the previous two races have grown — to the point where they may (amazingly) even be higher than for a horse with a winning track record. Thus, each marginal precursor win has actually decreased a horse’s chances of winning the Belmont (note that racebooks have completely failed to capture this effect).Perhaps this is partly because winning precursor races places horses at a disadvantage to fresher horses (as California Chrome’s co-owner Steve Coburn seems to think). But, more importantly, winning the shorter precursors is further evidence that a horse is more calibrated to the shorter distance.That top horses are calibrated to shorter distances is also evidenced by the rate at which Derby and Preakness winners match each other: California Chrome was the ninth such horse in the past 18 years.This is how it is now: More Triple Crown attempts, fewer Triple Crowns.

This time brokered by the @ICRC_ilot for a humanitarian hiatus. #IDF responding accordingly.— LTC (R) Peter Lerner (@LTCPeterLerner) July 20, 2014 Source: Peter Lerner/Twitter Updated 12.45 pmA SHORT-LIVED humanitarian truce in Gaza’s battered Shejaiya neighbourhood appeared to have collapsed this afternoon as the Israeli army accused Hamas militants of violating it and said it had “responded accordingly”.Israel agreed to observe an immediate two-hour humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza’s Shejaiya neighbourhood, halting a blistering bombing campaign that killed dozens in the area this morning.This morning’s Israeli bombardments killed at least 50 people in Gaza on Sunday, medics said, as the army intensified a 13-day campaign against the besieged Palestinian territory.“410 people have been killed since the war started and more than 3,020 people have been injured, most of them civilians,” deputy health minister Yussef Abu Rish told reporters at Shifa hospital in Gaza City.The vast majority of Sunday’s dead were in the Shejaiya neighbourhood between Gaza City and the Israeli border, where more than 50 people were killed in a blistering bombardment which began overnight, medics said.center_img Heavy artillery shelling east of Gaza City early in the morning killed at least six people, emergency spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.In one artillery hit in Shejaiya east of Gaza City, a woman, two children and the son of senior Hamas official Khalil al-Hayya were killed, Qudra told AFP.Thousands of people fled the Shejaiya district early this morning, many of them on foot, after heavy shelling left casualties lying in the streets.Ambulances were unable to reach much of the area along the border because of heavy fire, and emergency services told AFP there were reports of dead and wounded trapped by the bombardment.Earlier, tank fire killed 56-year-old Hosni al-Absi in the southern city of Rafah.An air strike in Rafah killed three young men, all brothers, and wounded 10 more people, Qudra said. Hours later, another strike in Rafah killed three people.Shortly after that, a strike in the central Strip killed a 29-year-old man.During Israel’s operation to stamp out rocket fire from the besieged territory, some 1,333 rockets have hit Israel, with 360 intercepted by its Iron Dome defence system.Israel’s military has hit thousands of targets in the besieged coastal territory.Five Israeli soldiers have been killed since the operation was launched on the army said.Two Israeli civilians, including a Bedouin man, have died in cross-border fire.Nearly 2,400 Palestinians have been wounded in the biggest confrontation in and around Gaza since Operation Cast Lead, a bloody 22-day offensive which ended in January 2009.Gaza’s health ministry said in a statement early Sunday that the Israeli artillery attack on Shejaiya had targeted ambulances trying to evacuate the wounded.© – AFP 2014Read: Gaza death toll passes 300 as UN chief heads to region >Read: Here’s what Pro-Israel and Pro-Palestine groups in Ireland have to say about the conflict >last_img read more

Lego employees build an incredible lifesized hobbit house

first_img 1 2 3 Note the (apparently full-sized) person in the backgroundYesterday, we showed you the awesome real-life hobbit house a very wealthy person had built for themselves. Alas, the average person would never have the money or land for such a creation, but Lego has built an alternative.People use Lego to create any number of amazing objects such as portal guns, working Batmobiles, and even an M&M sorting machine. This time the clever people at Lego have used their little plastic blocks to create something wonderful: a life-size model of Bag End from J.R.R Tolkien’s universe.Bag End was lovingly built by a patient team of 12 model shop employees and it took them around 3,000 hours to construct. The house is made up of over 2 million 1×1 Lego bricks, but if that wasn’t impressive enough, Bag End does more that just stand there. The chimney really smokes and there are working lights–one over the book stand and some more over the fireplace.The inside of the house fits in as much detail as possible, and there’s a table full of Lego food, a chest where Bilbo keeps his belongings, a stove, and places for the hobbits and dwarfs to sit. There’s also a number of huge Lego figures including Gandalf, Bilbo, and a selection of the dwarfs.It’s unclear what the model has been built for, though. It could be for an upcoming trade show or toy fair but, it would be amazing to see something like this at Lego Land. If you love this Lego set, but would never have the money, time, or space to build it, you can actually buy the exact same set in normal Lego size. It’s called 79003 An Unexpected Gathering and is available to purchase from Lego’s online store.Next page: A closer look at Lego Bag End…last_img read more

Le dauphin un mammifère qui chasse à lélectricité

first_imgLe dauphin, un mammifère qui chasse à l’électricitéDes chercheurs allemands viennent de découvrir que le dauphin de Guyane pouvait repérer ses proies en détectant leur champ électrique. C’est la première fois qu’un sens de ce genre est retrouvé chez un mammifère.Des chercheurs allemands du Dolphinarium d’Allwetterzoo Münster ont découvert chez des dauphins de Guyane (Sotalia guianensis) un sens qui n’avait jusque là jamais été identifié chez aucun mammifère : l’électroréception. Cette capacité à repérer les signaux électriques n’était connue que chez les poissons, les amphibiens et chez deux mammifères ovipares : l’ornithorynque et l’échidné.À lire aussiDes dauphins surpris en train de faire du ”toboggan” sur des baleines au large d’HawaïC’est en étudiant des dauphins captifs dont un décédé de façon naturelle que les biologistes ont repéré des “cryptes vibrissales”, de petites structures qui se trouvent sur le rostre de l’animal et qui sont associées aux moustaches des mammifères. Ne retrouvant pas de poils à l’intérieur de ces cryptes, les chercheurs se sont étonnés de découvrir une substance gélatineuse, une espèce de mucus identique à celui qu’on trouve dans les récepteurs électrosensibles de l’ornithorynque.Une électrosensibilité qui les aide à chasser Pour confirmer leur découverte, les scientifiques ont alors procédé à une série de tests sur un dauphin vivant, Paco. Ils ont soumis celui-ci à de faibles signaux électriques tels que ceux générés par les poissons de petite taille, ses proies habituelles. Sur les 186 essais réalisés, le dauphin a, à chaque fois réagi, même à de très faibles signaux, et a fait preuve d’une électrosensibilité identique à celle des ornithorynques. Les chercheurs précisent dans leur étude que lorsque le bec de l’animal a été recouvert d’une coque en plastique qui bloque les cryptes, Paco n’a plus réagi aux stimuli électriques.Grâce à ces résultats, publiés dans les Proceedings de la Royal Society B, les chercheurs se sont aperçus que l’électrorécepteur de ces animaux dérive d’un organe mécanosensoriel qui se retrouve, quant à lui, chez la plupart des mammifères. Il ne serait donc pas surprenant de trouver ce même système de radar chez d’autres espèces aquatiques ou amphibiennes, précise Sciences et Avenir.Le 30 juillet 2011 à 14:12 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

King Salman arrives in Japan for fourday visit

first_imgSaudi Arabian King Salman (L) gets off the plane upon his arrival at Haheda Airport in Tokyo on March 12, 2017. Photo: AFPSaudi Arabia’s King Salman arrived in Tokyo Sunday, making the first visit to Japan by a monarch from the oil-rich nation in nearly five decades.The 81-year-old king, who was greeted by Japan’s crown prince Naruhito at Haneda airport, will meet prime minister Shinzo Abe on Monday and as he kicks off the Japanese leg of a broader tour of Asia.Salman, who will visit 83-year-old Emperor Akihito on Tuesday, is travelling with a lavish entourage estimated at over 1,000 people.Some 1,200 rooms at Tokyo’s luxury hotels have been booked by the delegation for the three-night stay through Wednesday, according to local media, which has also reported that hundreds of limousines have been brought into the capital to accomodate the visitors.Saudi Arabia is the largest provider of oil exports for Japan, which relies on Middle East for energy to power the world’s third largest economy.Japan hopes to use the visit to widen its relations with Saudi Arabia and help the country’s efforts to diversify its economy, including exploring ways to increase Japanese investments in non-energy sectors such as manufacturing, according to officials.King Salman’s arrival marks the first visit to Japan by a Saudi leader since the 1971 visit to Japan by then-King Faisal.King Salman himself, however, last visited Japan in 2014 as a crown prince.The king is on a month-long tour of Asia, which has already taken him to Malaysia and Indonesia.After Japan, he is scheduled to visit China and the Maldives.Maldivian opposition parties on Friday raised objections to the planned visit and warned that they would stage protests over reports that Saudi business interests were buying an entire atoll in the politically-troubled Indian Ocean republic.last_img read more

Study group claims free access to research papers has reached a tipping

first_img © 2013 Phys.org Explore further Citation: Study group claims free access to research papers has reached a ‘tipping point’ (2013, August 23) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-08-group-free-access-papers.html University of California adopts open-access policy for research papers More information: www.science-metrix.com/eng/news_13_08.htm This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The idea of open-access for research papers is a relatively new idea. Online sites such as Nature or Science charge a fee for the right to read the articles they publish. But that, open-access advocates say, hampers scientific progress by preventing a lot of people from using such papers to further their own research. There is also the issue of who really owns the rights to papers produced that cover work paid for by governmental agencies. The Obama administration, tackling the issue head-on, just this past February mandated that all research papers that come about as a result of government funded work be made available free to the public within one year of initial publication. More recently the European Commission has announced that it will implement a similar plan, though the time frame is to be just six months.To learn more about how many papers are already available for free online, Science-Metrix undertook a study (paid for by the European Commission) using an outside source to estimate the number of papers published in 2008 and subsequently made freely available. That review came back with 32 percent. Not satisfied with that result, the company undertook its own study searching for papers published between 2008 and 2011. They claim to have found free access to 42 percent of 320,000 papers they searched for using netbots. Then, because they estimated that their search engines missed some free articles, they bumped the number up to 50 percent, which led Archambault to make his tipping point claim. The company suggests that the reason the number has grown so high is due to several developments. The first is the growth in open-access sites (from 4 to 12 percent of total published articles over the period 2004-2011). The second and likely making more of impact, however, is the trend towards allowing free access to articles initially published behind paywalls after a certain amount of time has passed—typically a year.Whether articles published as open-access have indeed reached a tipping point remains to be seen, what is certain now, is that the practice continues to incite great debate in the scientific community regarding both its merits and flaws. Per cent of freely available peer-reviewed papers, 2004-2011. Credit: Science-metrix report , Science Journal information: Nature (Phys.org) —Éric Archambault, president of Science-Metrix, is claiming in a paper produced by his company that free access (open-access) to research papers has now reached a “tipping point.” The implication is that now that at least as many researchers paper are available for free as those behind paywalls, more and more will be made available for free to the public until eventually all of them can be accessed by anyone that wishes without charge.last_img read more

Firefox upcoming WebExtension APIs revealed

first_imgFirefox upcoming WebExtension APIs revealed by Martin Brinkmann on June 25, 2018 in Firefox – Last Update: June 25, 2018 – 16 commentsWhen Mozilla released Firefox 57 back in November 2017, support for the new WebExtensions system for browser extensions was limited.Lack of support for certain APIs was a big problem as it meant that some extension developers could not port their extensions to the new extension system at all, had to omit features to do so, or wait for APIs to become available to produce a port.The issue would not have been that problematic if Mozilla would not have made the decision to remove the old add-on system in Firefox 57.New WebExtension APIs were introduced in newer versions of Firefox and others were improved to include new or missing functionality.While it is fair to say that the WebExtensions system willl never support the same capabilities that Firefox’s classic add-on system supported, it is clear that Mozilla is making progress and that the new extension system has become more powerful since the release of Firefox 57.Mozilla revealed a list of WebExtension APIs that it plans to include in coming versions of the Firefox browser.Starting with the release of Firefox 62, the following WebExtension APIs will be introduced in Firefox:APItarget releaseuserScripts63topSites62desktopCapture (TBD)63declarativeContent63Session management63 (TBD)Toolbars63 (TBD)Overlays64 (TBD)There is also discussion going on about introducing a color filter API. Mozilla did not reveal any other information about the upcoming APIs but the API names hint at what those could provide.Note that the following is my best guess based on the name and some information provided by Bugzilla and Mozilla Wiki pages.userScripts — management of userScripts and support for running userscripts in sandboxes and make userscripts more reliable See bug 1437098 and Wiki.topSites — extend the functionality of the topSites WebExtensions API. See bug 1446915desktopCapture — implementation of Chrome’s chrome.desktopCapture API. See bug 1303919declarativeContent — to match Chrome’s declarative Content API. See bug 1435864.Session Management — give extensions control over sessions. See bug 833791Toolbars — unclear, maybe control over existing toolbars and options to move icons and such?Overlays — secure overlay API to inject without “spamming the website DOM”. See bug 1340930.Some APIs add much requested functionality; session management is probably the number one here as extensions cannot control the functionality directly in Firefox currently. Extensions like Session Boss help themselves by using their own load and save functions.Closing WordsThe new APIs do extend the capabilities of Firefox’s extensions system further, and that is a good thing. I’m looking forward to userScripts, session management, toolbars and overlays, as they will improve functionality signifcantly (not sure about toolbars yet).Now You: What is your take on the additions?SummaryArticle NameFirefox upcoming WebExtension APIs revealedDescriptionMozilla revealed a list of WebExtension APIs that it plans to include in coming versions of the Firefox browser.

Implementing Dependency Injection in Swift Tutorial

first_imgIn software development, it’s always recommended to split the system into loosely coupled modules that can work independently as much as they can. Dependency Injection (DI) is a pattern that helps to reach this goal, creating a maintainable and testable system. It is often confused with complex and over-configurable frameworks that permit us to add DI to our code; in reality, it is a simple pattern that can be added without too much effort. This article is taken from the book Hands-On Design Patterns with Swift by Florent Vilmart, Giordano Scalzo, and Sergio De Simone.  This book demonstrates how to apply design patterns and best practices in real-life situations, whether that’s for new or already existing Swift projects. You’ll begin with a quick refresher on Swift, the compiler, the standard library, and the foundation, followed by the Cocoa design patterns to follow up with the creational, structural, and behavioral patterns as defined by the GoF.  To follow along with the examples implemented in this article, you can download the code from the book’s GitHub repository. In this article, we’ll see what Dependency Injection is, where it comes, and how it’s defined so that we can then discuss various methods to implement it, having a clear understanding of its principles. Dependency Injection, a primer Dependency Injection is one of the most misunderstood concepts in computer programming. This is because the Dependency Injection borders are quite blurry and they could overlap with other object-oriented programming concepts. Let’s start with a formal definition given by Wikipedia: “In software engineering, Dependency Injection is a software design pattern that implements inversion of control for resolving dependencies.” To be honest, this is not really clear: what is Inversion of Control? Why is it useful for resolving dependencies? In procedural programming, each object interacts with all of its collaborators in a direct way and also instantiates them directly. In Inversion Of Control, this flow is managed by a third party, usually, a framework that calls the objects and receives notifications. An example of this is an implementation of a UI engine. In a UI Engine, there are two parts: the Views and the Models part. The Views part handles all the interaction with the users, such as tapping buttons and rendering labels, whereas the Models part is responsible for business logic. Usually, the application code goes in the Models part, and the connections with the Views are done via callbacks that are called by the engine when the user interacts with a button or a text field. The paradigm changes from an imperative style where the algorithm is a sequence of actions, like in do this then do that, to an event style, when the button is tapped then call the server. The control of the actions is thus inverted. Instead of being the model that does things, the model now receives calls. Inversion of Control is often called Hollywood Principle. The essence of this principle is, “Don’t call us, we’ll call you,” which is a response you might hear after auditioning for a role in Hollywood. In procedural programming, the flow of the program is determined by the modules that are statically connected together: ContactsView talks to ContactsCoreData and  ContactsProductionRemoteService, and each object instantiate its next collaborator. In Inversion of Control, ContactsView talks to a generic ContactsStore and a generic ContactsRemoteService whose concrete implementation could change depending on the context. If it is during the tests, an important role is played by the entity that manages how to create and connect all the objects together. After having defined the concept of IoC, let’s give a simpler definition of DI by James Shore: “Dependency Injection” is a 25-dollar term for a 5-cent concept. […] Dependency Injection means giving an object its instance variables. Really. That’s it.” The first principle of the book Design Patterns by the Gang of Four is “Program to an interface, not an implementation” which means that the objects need to know each other only by their interface and not by their implementation. After having defined how all the classes in software will collaborate with each other, this collaboration can be designed as a graph. The graph could be implemented connecting together the actual implementation of the classes, but following the first principle mentioned previously, we can do it using the interfaces of the same objects: the Dependency Injection is a way of building this graph passing the concrete classes to the objects. Four ways to use Dependency Injection Dependency Injection is used ubiquitously in Cocoa too, and in the following examples, we’ll see code snippets both from Cocoa and typical client-side code. Let’s take a look at the following four sections to learn how to use Dependency Injection. Constructor Injection The first way to do DI is to pass the collaborators in the constructor, where they are then saved in private properties. Let’s have as an example on e-commerce app, whose Basket is handled both locally and remotely. The BasketClient class orchestrates the logic, saves locally in BasketStore, and synchronizes remotely with BasketService: protocol BasketStore { func loadAllProduct() -> [Product] func add(product: Product) func delete(product: Product)}protocol BasketService {func fetchAllProduct(onSuccess: ([Product]) -> Void)func append(product: Product)func remove(product: Product)}struct Product {let id: Stringlet name: String//…} Then in the constructor of BasketClient, the concrete implementations of the protocols are passed: class BasketClient { private let service: BasketService private let store: BasketStore init(service: BasketService, store: BasketStore) { self.service = service self.store = store }func add(product: Product) {store.add(product: product)service.append(product: product)calculateAppliedDiscount()//…}// …private func calculateAppliedDiscount() {// …}} In Cocoa and Cocoa Touch, the Apple foundation libraries, there are a few examples of this pattern. A notable example is NSPersistentStore in CoreData: class NSPersistentStore: NSObject { init(persistentStoreCoordinator root: NSPersistentStoreCoordinator?, configurationName name: String?, URL url: NSURL, options: [NSObject: AnyObject]?)var persistentStoreCoordinator: NSPersistentStoreCoordinator? { get }} In the end, Dependency Injection as defined by James Shore is all here: define the collaborators with protocols and then pass them in the constructor. This is the best way to do DI. After the construction, the object is fully formed and it has a consistent state. Also, by just looking at the signature of init, the dependencies of this object are clear. Actually, the Constructor Injection is not only the most effective, but it’s also the easiest. The only problem is who has to create the object graph? The parent object? The AppDelegate? We’ll discuss that point in the Where to bind the dependencies section. Property Injection We have already agreed that Construction Injection is the best way to do DI, so why bother finding other methods? Well, it is not always possible to define the constructor the way we want. A notable example is doing DI with ViewControllers that are defined in storyboards. Given we have a BasketViewController that orchestrates the service and the store, we must pass them as properties: class BasketViewController: UIViewController { var service: BasketService? var store: BasketStore?// …} This pattern is less elegant than the previous one: The ViewController isn’t in the right state until all the properties are set Properties introduce mutability, and immutable classes are simpler and more efficient The properties must be defined as optional, leading to add question marks everywhere They are set by an external object, so they must be writeable and this could potentially permit something else to overwrite the value set at the beginning after a while There is no way to enforce the validity of the setup at compile-time However, something can be done: The properties can be set as implicitly unwrapped optional and then required in viewDidLoad. This is as a static check, but at least they are checked at the first sensible opportunity, which is when the view controller has been loaded. A function setter of all the properties prevents us from partially defining the collaborator list. The class BasketViewController must then be written as: class BasketViewController: UIViewController { private var service: BasketService! private var store: BasketStore!func set(service: BasketService, store: BasketStore) {self.service = serviceself.store = store}override func viewDidLoad() {super.viewDidLoad()precondition(service != nil, “BasketService required”)precondition(store != nil, “BasketStore required”)// …}} The Properties Injection permits us to have overridable properties with a default value. This can be useful in the case of testing. Let’s consider a dependency to a wrapper around the time: class CheckoutViewController: UIViewController { var time: Time = DefaultTime()}protocol Time {func now() -> Date}struct DefaultTime: Time {func now() -> Date {return Date()}} In the production code, we don’t need to do anything, while in the testing code we can now inject a particular date instead of always return the current time. This would permit us of testing how the software will behave in the future, or in the past. A dependency defined in the same module or framework is Local. When it comes from another module or framework, it’s Foreign. A Local dependency can be used as a default value, but a Foreign cannot, otherwise it would introduce a strong dependency between the modules. Method Injection This pattern just passes a collaborator in the method: class BasketClient {func add(product: Product, to store: BasketStore) {store.add(product: product)calculateAppliedDiscount()//…}// …private func calculateAppliedDiscount() {// …}} This is useful when the object has several collaborators, but most of them are just temporary and it isn’t worth having the relationship set up for the whole life cycle of the object. Ambient Context The final pattern, Ambient Context, is similar to the Singleton. We still have a single instance as a static variable, but the class has multiple subclasses with different behaviors, and each static variable is writeable with a static function: class Analytics { static private(set) var instance: Analytics = NoAnalytics() static func setAnaylics(analitics: Analytics) { self.instance = analitics } func track(event: Event) { fatalError(“Implement in a subclass”) }}class NoAnalytics: Analytics {override func track(event: Event) {}}class GoogleAnalytics: Analytics {override func track(event: Event) {//…}}class AdobeAnalytics: Analytics {override func track(event: Event) {//…}}struct Event {//…} This pattern should be used only for universal dependencies, representing some cross-cutting concerns, such as analytics, logging, and times and dates. This pattern has some advantages. The dependencies are always accessible and don’t need to change the API. It works well for cross-cutting concerns, but it doesn’t fit in other cases when the object isn’t unique. Also, it makes the dependency implicit and it represents a global mutable state that sometimes can lead to issues that are difficult to debug. DI anti-patterns When we try to implement a new technique, it is quite easy to lose control and implement it in the wrong way. Let’s see then the most common anti-patterns in Dependency Injection. Control Freak The first one is pretty easy to spot: we are not using the Injection at all. Instead of being Injected, the dependency is instantiated inside the object that depends on it: class FeaturedProductsController { private let restProductsService: ProductsServiceinit() {self.restProductsService = RestProductsService(configuration: Configuration.loadFromBundleId())}} In this example, ProductsService could have been injected in the constructor but it is instantiated there instead. Mark Seeman, in his book Dependency Injection in .NET, Chapter 5.1 – DI anti-patterns, calls it Control Freak because it describes a class that will not relinquish its dependencies. The Control Freak is the dominant DI anti-pattern and it happens every time a class directly instantiates its dependencies, instead of relying on the Inversion of Control for that. In the case of the example, even though the rest of the class is programmed against an interface, there is no way of changing the actual implementation of ProductsService and the type of concrete class that it is, it will always be RestProductsService. The only way to change it is to modify the code and compile it again, but with DI it should be possible to change the behavior at runtime. Sometimes, someone tries to fix the Control Freak anti-pattern using the factory pattern, but the reality is that the only way to fix it is to apply the Inversion of Control for the dependency and inject it in the constructor: class FeaturedProductsController { private let productsService: ProductsServiceinit(service: ProductsService) {self.productsService = service}} As already mentioned, Control Freak is the most common DI anti-pattern; pay particular attention so you don’t slip into its trap. Bastard Injection Constructor overloads are fairly common in Swift codebases, but these could lead to the Bastard Injection anti-pattern. A common scenario is when we have a constructor that lets us inject a Test Double, but it also has a default parameter in the constructor: class TodosService { let repository: TodosRepositoryinit(repository: TodosRepository = SqlLiteTodosRepository()) {self.repository = repository}} The biggest problem here is when the default implementation is a Foreign dependency, which is a class defined using another module; this creates a strong relationship between the two modules, making it impossible to reuse the class without including the dependent module too. The reason someone is tempted to write a default implementation it is pretty obvious since it is an easy way to instantiate the class just with TodoService() without the need of Composition Root or something similar. However, this nullifies the benefits of DI and it should be avoided removing the default implementation and injecting the dependency. Service Locator The final anti-pattern that we will explore is the most dangerous one: the Service Locator. It’s funny because this is often considered a good pattern and is widely used, even in the famous Spring framework. Originally, the Service Locator pattern was defined in Microsoft patterns & practices’ Enterprise Library, as Mark Seeman writes in his book Dependency Injection in .NET, Chapter 5.4 – Service Locator, but now he is advocating strongly against it. Service Locator is a common name for a service that we can query for different objects that were previously registered in it. As mentioned, it is a tricky one because it makes everything seem OK, but in fact, it nullifies all the advantage of the Dependency Injection: let locator = ServiceLocator.instancelocator.register( SqlLiteTodosRepository(),forType: TodosRepository.self)class TodosService {private let repository: TodosRepositoryinit() {let locator = ServiceLocator.instanceself.repository = locator.resolve(TodosRepository.self)}} Here we have a service locator as a singleton, to whom we register the classes we want to resolve. Instead of injecting the class into the constructor, we just query from the service. It looks like the Service Locator has all the advantages of Dependency Injection, it provides testability and extensibility since we can use different implementations without changing the client. It also enables parallel development and separated configuration from the usage. But it has some major disadvantages. With DI, the dependencies are explicit; it’s enough to look at the signature of the constructor or the exposed properties to understand what the dependencies for a class are. With a Service Locator, these dependencies are implicit, and the only way to find them is to inspect the implementation, which breaks the encapsulation. Also, all the classes are depending on the Service Locator and this makes the code tightly coupled with it. If we want to reuse a class, other then that class, we also need to add the Service Locator in our project, which could be in a different module and then adding the whole module as dependency where we wanted just to use one class. Service Locator could also give us the impression that we are not using DI at all because all the dependencies are hidden inside the classes. In this article, we covered the different flavors of dependency injection and examines how each can solve a particular set of problems in real-world scenarios.
