VWInstantRun

An Xcode plugin that lets you build and run selected lines of code in Xcode without running the whole project. With VWInstantRun you can quickly test a tiny piece of Objective-C or Swift code without having to run the whole project. You just select your code in Xcode, then either use the hotkey or select the ‘Instant Run’ option from the ‘Product’ menu to build and run the selected lines, you’ll have the output instantly in your Xcode console. It’s currently limited to only support Foundation module, but development is ongoing to add additional support.
