I do some Cocoa development also, but as Paul noted, Cocoa is a moving target and I long ago decided to stop chasing it.  My machines are all frozen at Mavericks and I don’t update them any more, so what I’m doing is likely to have only limited utility for anyone else.

I do a lot of non-Cocoa development in CCL.  It’s my primary coding and deployment platform.  (I’m working on an ACME client even as I write this if anyone is interested.)  I keep a stock of old Macbook Pros and spare batteries for this purpose, so I can keep running Mavericks.  I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do when the last one dies.  That will be a very sad day for me.

A few other people, including the CCL developers, did similar things. For a while my code was distributed as one of the user contribs to CCL, but that is no longer done. You can still get my code at https://github.com/plkrueger/CocoaInterface. But Cocoa has been a constantly moving target and I have not maintained that code for some time now, so there may well be issues with it, I honestly do not know for sure. My own work has evolved to do more web interfaces and I occasionally interface with Python to get access to things like graph libraries. If you try my code and run into issues, feel free to contact me directly and I can try to help.
