Adding Resources and Sources folders to Playgrounds
Until they’re fixed, you may have to add them by hand.
- Show package contents
- You can add new Resources and Sources files at the top level
- Alternatively, navigate down to individual pages (which are finally in Beta 3!) by showing their package contents and add them there
Fortunately under Beta 3 you don’t have to manually add pages, as the new page functionality is finally back.
Creating New Playgrounds
They’re no longer listed in the File > New dialog. Instead choose File > New > Playground (Command-Shift-Option-N) or open “Welcome to Xcode” (Command-Shift-1) and click “Get started with a playground”.
Most of the obvious alternatives (like Command-Control-N, which creates new workspaces) are already taken, but if you don’t mind using the menu for that, I think it’s a nicer key binding for “New Playground”. If you want to mess with this open prefs (Command-comma), type playgrounds into the search field, and edit the key binding for “New > Playground”
Don’t forget that new playground page is “Command-Option-N”.
