Under The Microscope

Xcode Open Quicker

Since the topic of “Open Quickly” in Xcode has come up recently, I figured I’d mention my rather old “Xcode Open Quicker” plugin, which basically re-implements “Open Quickly”, but supports tab-completion. Download with source code here.

It is not a perfect re-implementation of “Open Quickly”, as Xcode not only searches the paths listed in the Open Quickly Preferences, but also files in the frontmost project. “Open Quicker” can only find files in the Preference search paths however. The workaround I do is to add a path for my svn repository to the search path list, and that takes care of that problem.
