An Xcode plugin that lets you quickly import your headers on the fly while typing. Just press the √¢≈íÀú + ctrl + H shortcut while typing and a popover appears with the selected text.

Auto Importer is a great time saver, available on Alcatraz or GitHub. […]
An Xcode plugin that displays deltas against a git repo in the Xcode source editor once you’ve saved the file. Although Xcode shows you which files are currently added or modified in your project, there is no simple way to see what exactly has changed inside the file. With GitDiff, differences are highlighted right next your code with orange and blue lines for modified and new code respectively and red lines to indicates code that has been removed. You can even hover over the deleted and modified line numbers to see original source. GitDiff is available in Alcatraz or you can download the source from GitHub. […]
An Xcode plugin that allows you to use colours in the Xcode debugging console. XcodeColors really helps with debugging by letting you make error messages stand out by printing them out in red, or logically separate parts output from your code by logging in different colours. There is no limit to the colours you can use – you can specify any RGB value in your source code for foreground and/or background colours. XcodeColors defines a handful of macros that you wrap around your NSLogs to print in your desired colour, or you can define your own macros to automatically log in different colours. […]
An Xcode plugin that provides a GUI for CocoaPods. Once installed you access the GUI by selecting ‘CocoaPod UI’ from the ‘Product’ menu. If your project doesn’t yet have a Podfile one will be created, then you can start browsing the list of available pods. Pods are arranged in a searchable alphabetical list, and when you’ve found what you need the latest version of the pod can be added to your project with one click. You can edit existing pods to change the selected version and add external sources or remove them from your project. CocoaPodUI will also check for outdated pods with the option of showing an outdated count on the Xcode icon. […]
An Xcode plugin that provides what ‘Open Quickly’ doesn’t. A keyboard shortcut activates a search box for you to type in your query to give you fast navigation around your Xcode project. It can search in all parts of your project including subprojects, interface builder, and Core Data models, and is much more intelligent that Xcode’s ‘Open Quickly’. It’s CamelCase aware and uses various bits of regex magic to find the files or symbols you want. It’s compatible with Xcode 5 and the developer has just made it open-source on Github. […]
