Don’t get me wrong; I love Swift and it’s my preferred language. It really didn’t take long to love it.
That being said, I really miss the idea of protected and private declarations, and creating Category Headers to expose private API’s.
It’s like giving a class “special permission” to interact with the private API’s of a different class, if there are a few classes that operate more closely, but still limiting the exposure of some properties to objects that aren’t coupled as tightly.
In Swift you just expose them all and write comments I guess. Perhaps I’ll figure that out when I become more experienced with Swift.
