iOS Empty Application Xcode Template

I wanted an empty iOS application template for Xcode 10 that didn't rely on a storyboard. It works nicely when creating small test apps with programatic views or just starting a fresh project without the storyboard cruft.

How do I install it?

The recommended install method is to place Empty Application.xctemplate within:


If you just place it in the root Templates directory the template will appear at the bottom of the Xcode project creation screen. If you create an Application subdirectory though and then stick it in there it will appear in the same Application section as all the other project templates.
