Open Source Tool That Makes Xcodebuild Output More Useful

Not too long ago I mentioned an Xcodebuild replacement tool Xctool providing improved testing and replacement functionality.

Here’s an interesting tool submitted by Marin Usalj called XCPretty that adds a number of formatting options to Xcodebuild. XCPretty doesn’t replace Xcodebuild but is piped with Xcodebuild and thus maintains full compatiblity.

With XCPretty you can make Xcodebuild’s output much more useful with options for color coding, simplifying, and turning on Rspec style output for tests.

You can find XCPretty on Github here.

A very nice tool epecially for test reports, on the github page there’s a nice example using XCPretty within a Rakefile for more descriptive testing results.
