Frustrated with the tedium of going through all the Xcode project files in a text editor and manually replacing all of the identifiers and filenames when creating a new Quartz Composer Patch, I decided to finally figure out how to create a new Xcode template. It’s pretty straightforward, actually, given Karsten Kusche’s instructions.
I started with QCJP’s Custom Patch code, made it a little more generic, and substituted macros for all the specific names.
Please see the latest version.
To make a Quartz Composer Patch, now all you need to do is:
- Create a new Xcode project with this template
- Give the project a name
- Build the project
- Move the
- Launch Quartz Composer
And, of course, modify the code, if you want to do something other than draw a triangle.
