XCode folder questions.
« on: 2011-Feb-01 »
A couple of quick questions about the iDevice XCode folder -

1. Do we really need the "GLBasic" folder within the "XCode" folder? It's just another folder to open to place Media etc. in and to open when we compile on Mac. Nobody but the author sees the folder, so it's not needed to promote GLB.

2. Would it be worthwhile to append the "XCode" folder with the project name, so they are easily identifiable, especially when copied across to Mac or memory stick etc. eg  Project name = "GigaBlaster" when compiled for iphone could create a folder called "XCode_GigaBlaster" rather than just "XCode"

Possible? Wanted? Bad ideas?

I have the same "problem"....  :P A folder into a folder into a folder into a....

Very good idea!!! (I think)

OK, I did that. But.. it sort of is not what I want. It makes my batch macros not working easily.

In my Macros I copy (SCP) the XCode directory to a directory named after the project. I don't think it's a good idea to have 2 varying names in a folder structure. I removed the GLBasic subdirectory, though.

Is that OK for you?

For me, OK. One folder minus.

yes i use source code macros, media macros etc so I like the standard naming too Kitty.
However, the glbasic folder going is good :)
