XCode 4 Template

The new Xcode 4 cannot use the old Xcode 3 templates. There are a few changes

1. Template folder location
/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/Library/Xcode/Templates/Project Templates
/Users/<username>/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates/


mkdir -p ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates



2. The Templates are in folders like

iPad Base.xctemplate, iPhone Base.xctemplate, Cocoa Touch Application.xctemplate
View-based Application.xctemplate Window-based Application.xctemplate

3. The Ancestors, Definitions and Options are defined in TemplateInfo.plist

4. To add files in the Template, you should define them in Definitions like

    <key>Definitions</key>

        <dict>
          <key>Path</key>
          <string>README</string>
<!-- excluded in targets -->

      </array>


5. To add build stage for existing Target


    <key>Targets</key>

      </dict>
<!-- Other targets here -->
