A couple of weeks ago I mentioned the open sourcing of the excellent Injection plugin that allows you to modify code running on the simulator/device and run it without recompiling.

Here’s another open source Xcode plugin called XcodeColor from DeepIT to aid in the debugging process by allowing you to add colors when logging to the console.

The version I used in my testing is a fork of XcodeColor from Robbie Hanson.   Robbie Hanson’s version has updated the Xcode Project (the original repository has not been updated in a couple of years) and adds support for full RGB colors.

Here’s an image showing XcodeColors in action:

You can download the Robbie Hanson updated version of  XcodeColors on Github here with documentation found in the wiki.

You can find more about XcodeColors on the DeepIT website.

You can see how Robbie uses XcodeColors on his blog here with the CocoaLumberjack logging framework.

A great way to easily catch any significant errors – since you can make them stick out rather than just having them get lost in a stream of console text.
