SCXcodeSwitchExpander

SCXcodeSwitchExpander is a small Xcode plugin that expands switch statements by inserting missing cases.

Features

  • inserts all possible switch cases

  • keeps already used cases and only inserts missing ones (even if the type changes)

  • only keeps the 'default:' case when used with the built-in Xcode snippet

  • works on ivars, properties, method parameters etc.

  • works with nested switches

  • hooks into the undo manager stack (makes it easier to fix typos)

  • fast and reliable (won't affect Xcode's performance in any signinficant way)

Screenshots

  • Replacing the default Xcode snippet DefaultSnippet

  • Inserting missing cases MissingInsertion

Known Issues

  • takes a bit for it to kick in after starting Xcode as it's waiting for the IDEIndexDidChange notification. I found that building the project usually makes that happen.

  • does not work with anonymous enums

Installation

  • Build the project and restart Xcode or ...

  • Download SCXcodeSwitchExpander.xcplugin.zip from the releases tab, unzip and move it to the Xcode plugins folder ~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins/SCXcodeSwitchExpander.xcplugin and restart Xcode or ...

  • Get it through Alcatraz

  • If you encounter any issues you can uninstall it by removing the ~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins/SCXcodeSwitchExpander.xcplugin folder
