UXKit skepticism

Brent Simmons, inessential, regarding yesterday's find that Apple's new Photos app contains ‘UXKit’ framework (similar to UIKit on iOS):

Some developers are excited to note that the new Photos app contains a private UXKit framework that, according to Jason Snell, “sits above the Mac’s familiar AppKit frameworks and strongly resembles UIKit on iOS.”

I doubt this will ever be available outside Apple as a framework that’s meant to replace AppKit.

One thing Brent doesn't mention, is that Apple's new language, Swift, is not used in Photos:


So that's another reason why UXKit may ever be available outside Apple - at least in its current form.
