AppCode Starts 2019.3 EAP: New Rendering for Build Messages, New Swift Intentions, and More

Today we are starting the Early Access Program for AppCode 2019.3, and the first build is already available to download from our site.


New Build Messages

We dedicated a lot of time improving build messages in earlier releases, but our build output parser was still affected by some performance issues. In this release cycle, we’re getting the build output tree directly from Xcode toolchain and only render it in AppCode. For you, this means that:

  1. Build speed should be the same as in Xcode for regular and incremental builds.
  2. All the necessary information should be visible, including compiler notes.
  3. AppCode now shows detailed build progress:Build progress
  4. The filtering of Build Messages is simplified: now you can see only errors and warnings by clicking the Show Problems Only button on the left of the toolwindow:Show Warnings Only


We’ve added several new intentions for Swift:

  • Split / join variable declaration and assignment:Split/join variable declaration and assignment
  • Split variable declarations with multiple elements:Split variable declarations with multiple elements
  • Split / join nested if/else statements:Split/join nested ifs

Code Generation

Code generation options for Swift now have two new options: Prefer Void over () and Prefer explicit return. Find them in Editor | Code Style | Swift | Code Generation | General.

That’s it for now!
