Marvin for Xcode

Marvin is a plugin for Xcode, it adds a large collection of text selections, duplication and deletion commands.

Accessible via

Xcode -> Edit -> Marvin

It includes the following commands (some might seem obvious but some need a little more detail to describe its function and value).

  • Delete Line
  • Duplicate Line
  • Join Line
  • Move To EOL and Insert LF
  • Select Current Word
  • Select Line Contents
    • This differs a bit from Select Line as it will exclude whitespace characters until it reaches the first valid character at both the beginning and end of the current line
  • Select Next Word
  • Select Previous Word
  • Select Word Above
  • Select Word Below
  • Sort lines

As an added bonus, on save, Marvin also

  • Magically cleans up whitespace on save.
  • Adds a LF at the end of the document

Install via Alcatraz

  • Install plugin and restart Xcode.

Build from Source

  • Build the Xcode project. The plug-in will automatically be installed in

    ~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins
    .
  • Relaunch Xcode.

To uninstall, just remove the plugin from

~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins
and restart Xcode.

Customize

You can configure Marvin's keyboard shortcuts by adding them to

System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts
. Note that the
Menu Title
needs to match Marvin commands

A big shout out goes out to Benoît Bourdon @benoitsan. He made BBUncrustifyPlugin-Xcode which includes private Xcode headers and some convenience methods that is being used in this project. Without his tremendous work this might not have ever happened.
