Comment on "First Look at Cappuccino and Objective-J"
by Scott Stevenson — Sep 15
@andy: Could you provide any guide / instructions on how to install Cappuccino IN the XCode folder scheme on a Mac - and get the XCode editor and Interface Builder to recognize the installed framework?

Hi Andy, I don't think this will work quite the way you're expecting. You could certainly make a blank project by going to Xcode > New Project and choosing Other > Empty Project, then just add the files manually. All Xcode will really do in this case, though, is hold the files for you. Another approach is to use Xcode's Organizer with Window > Organizer.

I'm also not sure what sort of value Xcode could add to Cappuccino development right now beyond basic editing, since a lot of Xcode's features revolve around gcc (or llvm) and gdb. In other words, what are you hoping Xcode would do for you? I don't think there's any way to use Interface Builder with Cappuccino right now, though I'm sure the 280 North guys would like to improve that at some point.

When I said "prototyping tools for web apps based on Cappuccino," I meant prototyping in the literal sense, not development. In other words, you can could create test apps in normal desktop Cocoa, then "port" them to Cappuccino.
