Xcode plugin for displaying information in the gutter.

Screenshot of the plugin in action

It will display JSON from .gutter.json in the current project's directory, example:

{ "/some/file": [
    "line": 23,
    "long_text": "Some longer text in a tooltip when hovering over the line.",
    "name": "main",
    "short_text": "gutter text",
] }

see this file for more information. This enables the integration of abitrary tools and scripts into Xcode without the need to write yet another plugin.

Current applications

  • Show code coverage information, generated with slather. If you already have set it up, slather can generate a suitable .gutter.json by simply running:

    $ slather coverage -g path/to/project.xcodeproj
  • Show code size information of Pebble applications, using puncover - this also inspired the name of this plugin.

  • Show findings of Faux Pas, using this script to convert the JSON.



  • Clone and build the plugin yourself, it will be installed to the right location automatically by building it.


In any case, relaunch Xcode to load it.
