Xcode for Mac 2021 full offline installer setup for Mac
Code you write in Xcode looks stunning as the dark X code interface makes your work the star of the show. The entire interface is tuned for your dark Mac experience, from icons, to fonts, to the subtle contrast color of the Jump Bar.
It also gives you powerful tools for creating your own dark apps for macOS. Interface Builder lets you quickly switch your design and preview from light to dark. Asset catalogs define assets and named colors. And you can switch your app in and out of Dark Mode while debugging. This is all done using controls within the tool that only apply to your app. No need to change your system settings.
The app includes a lightning-fast source code editor. Text scrolls incredibly smoothly, even when editing enormous source files. Smooth animations are used throughout, whether folding your code to enhance focus, or when X code highlights errors and offers Fix-its. With great Markdown support, your accompanying documentation will look great, too.
Source control is the place where your whole team works on code together. Apple Xcode supports working directly with several collaboration platforms, including:
- GitHub and GitHub Enterprise
- Bitbucket Cloud and Bitbucket Server
- GitLab.com and GitLab self-hosted
It's never been easier for your team to work together in the cloud or on self-hosted servers within your organization. To make your workflows easier and more secure, Xcode for macoS can even generate a unique SSH key for you and upload it to the server.
Using Instruments, you can finally retire your print() statements, which are replaced with OSLog signposts and your own custom instruments. With virtually no overhead you can mark important points throughout your code, then track those signposts as your app runs in Instruments. These log points appear alongside other analysis events such as CPU, memory, or network usage to give you valuable insights into your code’s behavior.
It includes a robust testing engine built right in. Run unit tests, as well as UI and performance tests, across multiple physical devices at a time. Or take advantage of the processing horsepower of Mac to dramatically speed up testing using simulated devices running in parallel.
It includes Swift 4.2, which compiles your software more quickly, helps you deliver faster apps, and generates even smaller binaries. Compared to Swift 4.0, the latest Swift compiler can build large apps more than twice as fast.* Combined with the new Xcode new build system, your everyday edit, build, and test workflow is much faster. Optimized for the latest multi-core Mac hardware, the app and Swift make for a lightning-fast development platform.
Swift was built to be fun to use, and it’s easy to experiment with an API when using a playground file. In Apple X code, playgrounds are dramatically enhanced to work more like a traditional REPL, while making the live view even more responsive and fun to use for quick designs. As you add new code, only new lines are recompiled. You can choose to re-run specific lines of code, or hit shift-return to run the program right up to the line of code you just typed.
