Updating Xcode plugin to 7.0 beta

Despite all reasons to the contrary, I’m glad I’ve named my Xcode 7 install “Xcode6-Beta”. It’s making things a lot easier in terms of keeping my macros in-sync and just now updating my custom text folding plug-in.

When I noticed that the line fragment folder wasn’t available in the new beta, I launched the project I recently built to see what was going on. Turns out that it only took two little tweaks to get things working with beta 7:

1. Add a compatibility UUID to my Info.plist in the DVTPlugInCompatibilityUUIDs array:

defaults read /Applications/Xcode6-Beta.app/Contents/Info DVTPlugInCompatibilityUUID

2. Update the xcscheme to point the PathRunnable attribute to the beta path and recompile.

Right now, my plug-in is back on-line. Tests worked properly and I’m looking forward to using the code wrapping.
