What is it?

This is an xcode plug-in which makes writing Obj-C easier, by automatically inserting paired message sending brackets. Watch the screencast to see how it works.

Installation

  1. Open the project and build the plug-in (or download and extract it from the Downloads page).
  2. After a successful build the plug-in should automatically be installed; to install it manually move the product (XcodeBracketMatcher.pbplugin) to ~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins (create the directory if necessary).
  3. Restart Xcode.

Usage

When editing an Objective-C(++) or Objective-J file, you can type a ] to add a message to the current line. The plug-in will automatically look backwards to insert the opening bracket at the appropriate location.

Credit

The bracket placement logic (i.e. most of the hard work) was already done by Joachim Mårtensson for the Objective-C TextMate bundle, found here inside the parser.rb script.
