Differences with code signing in Mavericks. A bit of a problem if you use 3rd party frameworks.
Fuzzy autocomplete for Xcode 5. I wonder how hard it would be to modify this to add better Baysian autocomplete to Xcode. That’s long been my complaint with it. If you want to write a plugin for Xcode 5 there’s a template for it.
Searchable full-text transcripts of WWDC Sessions. Looks like it just does 2013 right now but hopefully they’ll add 2011 & 2012 soon. This is really something Apple should have done years ago.
DebugKit — some really nice utility frameworks for debugging in Xcode. Makes doing hex analysis of variables much nicer. A must have if you’re debugging binary data.
New editor features in VS2013. Some of these are very nice like the peek at definition feature. Say what you will about VS but I wish Xcode borrowed many of its features. (Particularly its tabbable debug panes) Note I’ve not tried Xcode 5 (which is under NDA).
QuickRadar an app for quickly filing radars to Apple. Apple just fixed my radar account. It wasn’t working for several weeks for some reason.
Use Xcode’s behaviors to take a snapshot after any successful build. Cool tip. (HT: Kris Markel)
Tsai on Deploymate. Scans your project to make sure you’ve correctly targeted an old version of the OS. I’m thinking about starting to do regular backups of systems to Parallels just to have stuff to test against.
How to fix Xcode snippets. (HT: Ash Furrow)
Brent Simmons against Interface Builder. Makes some good points. Especially about AutoLayout.
Elastic tabs for programming. (HT: Oluseyi) Since I’ve become enamored of proportional fonts for coding I have wished there were real tab stops in BBEdit and Xcode. There is a problem sharing code with others though.
XCode and Versions. Apparently Xcode supports OSX’s versioning but hasn’t exposed a UI for it. Open the file in TextEdit and you can revert though.
Way back in the day, when I first really got into real Mac programming I used an old IDE called Think Pascal. One of the cool things about it was that unlike Think C, it allowed programming with proportional fonts. I typically used Geneva to code in Pascal and Monoco to program in C. I […]
Vicious, a vi mode for Xcode’s editor. I use vi at the command line since I know it’ll be on any server I’m apt to log into. Not sure I’d use this in Xcode. More interesting is how many “plugins” to Xcode 4 using private apis there are starting to be.keep looking »
