I got this error when building:
error: couldn't create directory /Users/smd/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins/OMColorSense.xcplugin/Contents: Permission denied
If you have similar error message, just create Plug-ins directory and chmod 777.
$ sudo mkdir /Users/smd/Library/Application\ Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins/
$ sudo chmod -R 777 /Users/smd/Library/Application\ Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins/
Thanks, I've added a link to this issue in the readme file.
For Xcode 4.4.1 / OS X 10.8.1, the Developer folder is located at ~/Library/Developer. So, I assumed (perhaps incorrectly...) that we should change the path in Xcode's Build Settings for Project, from
and similarly, for Target, to
to get it to work, and if necessary use the above commands with the path
This seemed to work on my system - I did not have to create the folder or set permissions manually.
However, I did not see the plugin actually working after restarting Xcode. Am I perhaps missing something silly?
As far as I can tell, both locations (~/Library/Developer/... and ~/Library/Application Support/Developer/...) exist for Xcode 4.4.1 (which I also use). But it seems that Xcode only loads plugins from ~/Library/Application Support.... This isn't documented anywhere, of course, so there could be another location that I'm not aware of.
Indeed, my assumption was wrong, and it does work fine when I moved the file to $(HOME)/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins (after manually creating the folders to complete the latter part of that path).
It's a neat little tool. Thanks! :) And I apologise for my late reply to your helpful response.
