Lin is a open source plug-in for Xcode 5.
It lets you search/manage localizations without opening the .strings files.
This version does not support Xcode 6 or later.
Please use the latest version of questbeat/Lin.
When you are focusing on NSLocalizedString or other functions to get a localized version of a string, Lin shows the list of localizations that contains the inputted key string.
You can add a new localization or remove a localization from the popover.
(Click +/- button in the bottom left of the popover.)
You can also edit key or value of a localization by clicking the row on the table.
Lin has not only popover mode, but also window mode.
The window will appear when you drag-and-drop the popover.
In window mode, the search field can be used to find the localization with a free keyword.
Download the project and build it, then relaunch Xcode.
Lin will be installed in
~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins automatically.
If you want to uninstall Lin, remove Lin.xcplugin in
You can enable/disable Lin or show window manually by opening the Lin menu in the Editor menu in Xcode.
.stringsfiles must be UTF-8
.stringfile, don't forget to save otherwise new strings won't appear in completion popup
