How to Create an Xcode Source Editor Extension

Xcode is the main IDE (Integrated Development Environment) used by thousands and thousands of developers every day. It is an awesome tool, but sometimes you want to customize some of its features and behaviors to better fit your workflow.

Until Xcode 7, it was possible to inject code into Xcode at runtime to create plugins. Plugins could be submitted and distributed through a great app called Alcatraz. This is no longer possible in Xcode 8.

Xcode 8 validates each library and bundle to prevent malicious code from running without your permission. When Xcode starts, previously installed plugins with Alcatraz are not loaded anymore. Not everything is lost though, Apple also announced at WWDC the possibility to develop Xcode source editor extensions so that everyone can extend existing source editing features. Let's take a look about what we can achieve with such extensions.
