One of the things I use in TextMate regularly is the apple-cmd-b key combo, to bring up a todo list for the current project. Whenever I have something planned in my code, but don’t feel like implementing it yet I annotate this piece of code with a comment like:
The todo plugin will list all these
TODO’s from my code which gives me an indication on how to improve my code further.
The problem is that while I use TextMate for my web and java programming, I use XCode for most of the real programming done using Objective-C/Cocoa. But XCode doesn’t have the todo feature and there is no way to add plugin’s to XCode. Even a google search resulted in nothing on the subject.
So for now I’m using the Lightweight issue tracking bash script I found which seems like the only solution usable in combination with XCode.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
Add this script to your ~/.bash_profile to be able to execute the
todo command that searches the current directory, or the directories given as argument for
// TODO: lines.
