Swiftpack.co - Package - TheAngryDarling/SwiftXcodeProj

Xcode Project

swift >= 4.0 macOS Linux Apache 2

A package used for reading/writing PBX Project Files and Xcode Projects.

The XcodeProj package uses its own wrapper around file system object so that file system providers can be created when wanting to access objects remotly. The idea behide this is using the XcodeProj packing on a mobile device like iPad that accesses the project which is on a remote server. This allows developers to write custom file system providers to suite their communication needs and not require that the whole project be downloaded locally before working on it. A file system provider for local files is provided within the project, and local constructor methods have been provided for both XcodeProject and XcodeWorkspace


import XcodeProj
    let project = try XcodeProject(fromURL: url) // URL is a local file URL
    project.targets // Get an array of targets
    project.resources // Access to the files/groups within the project
import PBXProj
    let pbxFile = try PBXProj(fromURL: url) // URL is a local file URL
    pbxFile.project // The project for this file
    pbxFile.mainGroup // Access tot he files/groups within the project
    pbxFile.objects // The array of objects within the file
