NetNewsWire + MarsEdit lines of code
A little while ago folks were posting the number of lines of code of their apps as generated by SLOCcount. I’m just now getting around to it.
I can’t tell you NetNewsWire and MarsEdit stats separately, since both apps share a number of frameworks that we’ve written. Here’s the stats on both apps together, including the frameworks they share:
Total Physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC) = 86,433
Development Effort Estimate, Person-Years (Person-Months) = 21.60 (259.25)
Schedule Estimate, Years (Months) = 1.72 (20.66)
Estimated Average Number of Developers (Effort/Schedule) = 12.55
Total Estimated Cost to Develop = $ 2,918,470
I think the main virtue of SLOCcount is that it’s an ego gratification tool for developers. “I did the work of twelve point five five people!” Etc.
