Minimal Xcode Templates for Open Source Developers

Xcode means well with all of its file templates and autocomplete fanciness. But more often than not, it just gets in the way, and generates dozens of lines of code that you'll delete anyway.

Select from your favorite open source licenses to be embedded in the header:

Installation & Usage

  • Create a new directory in /Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates/Application/File Templates called Licensed.
  • Copy the contents of the "File Templates" directory of this repository into Licensed.
  • Relaunch Xcode and select "File > New File", or use the ⌘N keyboard shortcut.
  • Select the "Licensed" category, then select the "Licensed Objective-C Class" template, and hit "Next".
  • Enter the name of your class and select the desired license.
