Pimp My Code, Part 5: In Python

Wil Shipley continues his Pimp My Code series with an article reviewing what should have been a very simple method to return a path inside the Application Support folder.

Well worth a read, both for the stylistic as well as the comedic commentary.

From my perspective, it is also a useful source of learning about Cocoa from one of the better programmers.

In Python, the final example looks something like:

from Foundation import *

def applicationSupportFolder():
  return NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(\
    NSApplicationSupportDirectory, NSUserDomainMask, True\

Note: The code has been reformatted to (attempt to) fit your screen.
