Apple Xcode is Apple Computer's integrated development environment (IDE) for OS X. The full Xcode package is free to ADC members and includes all the tools you need to create, debug, and optimize your own Universal applications, targeting both Intel and PowerPC platforms. At the heart of Xcode is a graphical workbench that tightly integrates a syntax-highlighting text editor, a robust build control system, a debugger, and the powerful GCC compiler capable of targeting both Intel and PowerPC regardless of host platform. Xcode is both easy to use, using assistants to create working projects in just minutes, and also powerful more...

I can't understand all the negative reviews. Have you ever used Eclipse or AppCode? Those are really ugly Apps and while Eclipse or VisualStudio might have some more features, XCode is way easier to use and to learn.

Is there any way to upgrade Xcode 5.0 to 5.0.1 without re-downloading the whole thing?

The 5.0.1 update size from App Store is under 200MB, not the full 2.18GB listed here. It's ~130MB or ~170MB; whichever the iMovie 10.0.3 update isn't.

The 5.1.1 update …, that is.

Error in requirements, Xcode now needs Mountain Lion version 10.8.4, not Lion.

Thanks for pointing that out, Myjsm. I've corrected the requirements for the listing.

I'm currently unable to download Command Line Tools using a free developer AppleID that successfully downloaded pre-5.0 versions.

I'm also having that same issue. Drat.

Try it again, Sam-A. :)

After posting here I checked developer.apple.com/downloads and neither Xcode 5 or Command Line Tools were listed, but both are there now and I've successfully downloaded/installed CLT directly from Xcode 5.

Thanks sjk. I downloaded it from the site and all went OK.

FYI for anyone looking to obtain Xcode 4.2 for Snow Leopard, but you don't have a paid developer account:

Hey all, I'm having a strange error, with installing xcode documentation. I have Xcode 4.6 and when i click to install documentation sets i'll get the error unable to expand documentation doc set, for whatever doc set it is. I can't seem to resolve this, or find a manual way of installing to get around this. Could some one shed some light please? Google hasn't been much help here either. Currently i'm repairing disk permissions to see if there is an issue there, as far as an issue such as disk i/o errors, my hard drive doesn't report any problems with any of the tools i've used to test for damage.

Just a minor hint: I had a lot of crashes with a small project. Turned off "Auto layout" and the crashes went away. At a first glance it seemed as if the project file was corrupt, but it wasn't.

Those who have adopted to any of the PC IDEs will always hate XCode, but for those who are new to programming, I can tell you: There is no easier IDE than XCode. You will find your way very quickly.
After all, for me XCode rarely crashes (since 4.5) and I use it full time each day.

Negative reviews are from people like me, who have faced huge problems with the XCode in terms of reliability. I have used lots of IDEs during my career, but I have never been so unsure in the tool I use.

XCode3 was much weaker, looked worse an so on, but at least I didn't have that terrible experience with the bugs, crashes and freezes as I had with XCode4. The latest builds are getting better, but they still do have various issues even with basic functionality...

And I just can't understand it. It's been 2+ years since the first beta, the IDE is supported by the riches IT company in the world... And they still can't make this damn syntax highlight and code completion working 100% of time?

@Gobra OK, I see your point. You're especially right in that Apple really has the resources to do better.

- Code completion heuristics are more accurate, and use an optimized default data set.
- New compiler warnings help identify potential bugs when using ARC and weak references.

And I say: Finally!!!

Hey guys, I've been able to update xcode on lion regularly until 4.5.2. I only have one apple ID which is itunes icloud and mac app store. I have xcode 4.5.1 installed on lion 10.7.5 and the app store doesn't show xcode 4.5.2 as an available update. When I go to the purchases section xcode shows that it needs to be updated, however when I click, the app store thinks xcode was purchased on a different account, and refuses to update. Is there a fix for this, so i don't have to do the whole download again from scratch? thanks.

Sweet IDE (S - Integrated Developer Environment)

funny thing: most of the things I thought Xcode does wrong was my own misunderstanding. for example, thinking that code-completion could work when I'm not in the right context (forgot a bracket or whatever). Haha !

As Xcode may change over time - like technology does (and hopefully the human mind too) - you have to change with it. If you can't do that you end up in complaining instead of flowing with it.

It has changed so many times I can't count it!
No problem, just give me a heads-up (please).

Of course I don't have zig millions of source code to maintain.
