String Editing Plugin for Xcode
Perfect for editing regular expressions, multi line texts, inline HTML and many more use cases. Also provides quick feedback on string length.
There are two ways:
Build the Xcode project and restart Xcode. The plugin will automatically be installed in
~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins. First remove the plugin from there (and restart Xcode).
If you get a "Permission Denied" error while building, please see this issue.
Use Alcatraz, the package manager for Xcode (Attention, you'll need to have MacOS 10.9 installed!)
With a little trick you can enable keyboard shortcut for showing the popover. Open
System Preferences app, then section
Keyboard and add a custom application shortcut for Xcode as in the following image:

This work is derived from the awesome Color Sense plugin of Ole Zorn. Thanks Ole!
