PList Compiler, a property list compiler for XCode.

PList Compiler lets you build localized and non-localized plist files from plc and ploc source files. It is a script that you execute as a Shell Script Build Phase within your XCode project and which takes care of generating automatically the property list files for your packaged applications, bundles, frameworks, plugins, etc. Among all its features:

  • supports many different encodings (including utf-8 and utf-16)
  • supports many predefined variables (YEAR, DATE, OUTPUT_FILENAME, etc.)
  • supports all the XCode internal variables
  • supports conditional preprocessor macros, defines and includes
  • supports localized strings files
  • comes with a detailed help file
