Alcatraz

Alcatraz is an open-source package manager for Xcode 7. It lets you discover and install plugins, templates and color schemes without the need for manually cloning or copying files. It installs itself as a part of Xcode and it feels like home.

Please note that plugins are not supported by Xcode 8. See #475 for more information.

Development

Alcatraz has a few contribution guidelines, for anyone looking to make it more awesome.

Troubleshooting

If "nothing" happens when installing packages, try the following self-help steps:

  1. Verify which copy (if more than one are installed) of git is being run (
    which git
    ).
  2. Make sure you're running a recent version of git (
    git --version
    ).
  3. If you've used Xcode developer preview releases in the past, make certain Xcode isn't stuck using an inappropriate developer path by resetting it (
    sudo xcode-select --reset
    ).

Uninstall

Open up your terminal and paste this:

rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins/Alcatraz.xcplugin

To remove all packages installed via Alcatraz, run

rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/Alcatraz/
