This app worked well for me, but now that I Xcode has been updated to version 3.0, it is not as useful. I really appreciated this app while it was relevant - changing names used to be nearly impossible! Thanks! Now, with X-code 3.x, simply go to the menu bar, select "Project" and then "Rename..."

Doesn't work on my Xcode 2.2 project. It wouldn't rename the project if the new name contained the space character -- which is absurd, because Xcode does in fact allow that. When I tried to rename it to something that didn't contain a space character, it failed with an error about a missing .pch file.

I wouldn't recommend putting a space character in the name of the .xcodeproj file. 50% of the time, this will make the compilation fail. (one day it compiles, the other it fails)

That sounds like an issue with your project. You might want to check your build settings. I've done quite a few projects in Project Builder/Xcode that had spaces in their file names, and I've never had a problem. That includes two projects done entirely in the new .xcodeproj format. Besides, many of Apple's developer example projects have spaces in their file names, and the Xcode "New Project" wizard cheerfully allows them. It seems highly unlikely to me that this is an Xcode-specific issue.

Useful little app for developers that are not too familiar with the mechnaics of XCode. Yes, it does save a bunch of time if you have to poke around and figure out what needs to be renamed in the project settings. Hopefully the existence of this app will provoke the XCode team to put a new menu item in the File menu: "Rename Project"! BTW, the app works!

FWIW, almost all IDEs have major issues renaming projects, including MS Visual Studio.

I like it. Yes, you can rename a project by hand, and no, it doesn't take that long (once you figure out every thing that needs to be changed - it's not documented). But it **is** annoying, and some of us believe that's what computers are for: To manually rename a project you must: Rename the project file Open the project and rename the target In Build Settings, rename Product Name and Prefix Header On disk, rename the prefix file If you've already got RSI from too many years of coding and mousing, and if you tend to name projects "test" until you think of a spiffy name later, this is quite a helpful little app. 100% Cocoa, no Applescript. Source included. A nice enhancement would be to rename the folder containing the renamed project. But since source code is included, I can add that myself. Conclusion: Renaming a single project may only take 30-60 seconds. The real time savings is that once i got sick of doing it by hand, I didn't have to write this app myself. To the author: nice job, and Illegitimi Non Carborundum.

Saves a bunch of time? There's only 3 places in the project that the name exists (not counting the project file itself). It takes all of 10 seconds for me to rename a project file. Of course, if you want to rename the precompiled header too, that takes, oh, another 10 seconds. So 20 seconds total.

I'm just an AppleScripter so using XCode is new territory for me - It may only take a couple changes to rename a project and a few seconds for someone familiar with XCode to do it but for me, being a novice, this program has saved alot of time and frustration.

Kevin, do you really find THIS procedure (http://homepage.mac.com/kelleherk/iblog/C1216817469/E1454445171/index.html) acceptable? It takes only 20 seconds for you? Alright, Slowhand, chapeau. But in my view it is an incomprehensible and inacceptable flaw.

Nice useful app which actually manages to misspell Xcode as xCode. It needs some built in error handling to allow renaming of apps without precompiled headers but otherwise it saves a bunch of time doing it manually.
