Xcode Plugin Template

project deprecated

This project is deprecated in favor of Editor Extensions support in Xcode 8+.

Basic template for creating a plugin for Xcode 6 and 7.



The default plugin file links against AppKit and Foundation, and, when built (and Xcode is restarted), creates a menu item labeled "Do Action" in the Edit menu. Pressing the menu item should open an alert. Customize at will!

Note: Compiling the template with Swift requires Xcode 6.1 or greater.


  • Add the build UUIDs for the versions of Xcode you wish to support to DVTPlugInCompatibilityUUIDs in Info.plist. This can be found by running:

    defaults read /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Info DVTPlugInCompatibilityUUID
