An Xcode Plugin That Automatically Creates Warnings For Any Unused Imports Found

Earlier this year I mentioned a nice open source command line tool called fui that allows you to quickly find unused imports within your Xcode projects, and as you may know I’ve maintained a list of Xcode plugins for some time.

Here’s an Xcode plugin that allows you to automatically utilize the fui tool within xcode called Xcfui from Josip Cavar. The plugin will automatically add warnings for any unused imports found by the fui tool.

An image from the readme showing the Find unused imports option in the file menu:

You can find the plugin on Github here.

Btw if you’re having issues with plugins and Xcode 6 you may want to try running this script by Boris Bugling which will update the UUID’s of your installed plugins so that they can start with Xcode 6.

A handy plugin for finding any unused imports.
