Xcode includes everything developers need to create great applications for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. Xcode provides developers a unified workflow for user interface design, coding, testing, and debugging. The Xcode IDE combined with the Swift programming language make developing apps easy and fun. Xcode includes the Xcode IDE, Swift and C/C++/Objective-C compilers, Instruments analysis tool, simulators, the latest SDKs, and hundreds of powerful features: Innovative tools help you create great apps • Swift is an intuitive programming language that is safe, fast, and modern • SwiftUI is a revolutionary new framework to create user interfaces with a declarative Swift syntax • Playgrounds are a fun way to experiment and interact with Swift code • View debugging shows a 3D stack of all your app's UI view layers at runtime • Split editors in virtually unlimited ways, show previews, or choose an assistant to see related content • Live Issues display errors as you type, and Fix-its improve your code with just a click • Source control navigator and service integrations help you manage code across a team SwiftUI and Interface Builder make it easy to design your interface • SwiftUI uses declarative Swift code that clearly describes your interface • Design canvas graphically builds UI views using the library of controls and modifyers • Preview SwiftUI code or UIKit interfaces in different screen sizes, orientations, and font sizes • SwiftUI code is always in perfect sync with the graphical design canvas and previews • Animations are built using simple commands that describe the action you want to see Professional editor and debugger keep your code front and center • Refactoring makes it easy to modify the structure of Swift, Objective-C, C, and C++ code • Open Quickly instantly opens any file within your project • Data tips and Quick Look can inspect a variable by hovering your mouse over code while debugging • Third-party app extensions can add new capabilities to the source editor Test driven development is built right in • Use the Test Navigator to add, edit, or run unit tests or user interface tests with just a click • Test Assistant makes it easy to edit your code and related tests, side-by-side • Create continuous integration bots to build and test on a server Mac running Xcode Instruments for performance analysis • Compare CPU, disk, memory, and GPU performance as graphical tracks over time • Identify performance bottlenecks, then dive deep into the code to uncover the cause • Analyze your app directly, or sample the entire system with very little overhead • Create custom instruments with unique visualizations to analyze your own code and frameworks To test or run applications on an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, or Apple Watch all you need is a free Apple ID. To submit your apps to the App Store you must be a member of the Apple Developer Program. Some features may require Internet access.
I hate it for the app size and the update size too(I don't think apple updates it, they may be reinstalling it). I've no use of it as I use only VSCode, but being forced by apple makes it sooooo ANNOYING.
this is a hard rock head banger!
The only reason this is #1 in app development is because there aren't really any other competitors. UX is terrible. Breaks frequently, requiring me to search forums to figure out why something stopped working, then apply my own fix. Look at the review breakdown. ~1/3 of them are 1 star.
X-Code is incredibly UN-Apple like. Very hard to use, and the update is a mess. Trying to update to 14 and apparently need over 40 Gb of empty space to update a bloated 11Gb application. Fastest way is to delete 13 and then just install 14. But set aside a couple hours to download.
just can't campare with Visual Studio
From your sleak look, to always helpful autocomplete I've found love. Sure Eclipse is neat, but why settle when you are complete.
This was a really great app and I liked the fact that I still get easy to use develiper apps for apple devices. But one thing I dont like is it taks up a lot of space. You might think "It only takes up 11 GBs but my mac has a lot of the storage used because I like using my mac alot. Apple if there is a way that you can make xcode take up lesss space, I would go for it. Thre is also one more problem that other people have and thats The IDE. I'm not having a problem with the IDE but other people are. Apple employes, if your reading this fix these issues. If you do, THANK YOU APPLE. from Apples biggest fan
We are in 2020th and I need to use mouse to drag the bottom console sidebar? Please change it, after I'll change my review!
Installing Xcode 12.0 needs about 40 GB space!
