iBabel version 4.0 released
At the start of 2020 I decided that I'd try learning to program in Swift using Xcode, my first project was molSeeker a tool for searching online resources using chemical identifiers. This was really just a vehicle for me to learn Swift and now I'm delighted to be able to release a more substantial effort, a complete rewrite of iBabel.
iBabel is a graphical user interface (GUI) to the open-source cheminformatics toolkit Open Babel described in an article in J Cheminformatics, Open Babel: An open chemical toolbox DOI. iBabel was originally written as an AppleScript Studio application which underwent several updates. However, recent changes have made this unsupportable so I decided on a complete Cocoa/Swift rewrite.
You can read all about the new version of iBabel here including the links to the download. I've attached a couple of screenshots to give you an idea of what functionality is available.
