For an Xcode project, is it good to add .xcodeproj files to the source control as well?
I am using Xcode 4.3.2 and realized that the project files are not added to the git repo, so I added them and committed: (there are 6 files)
# On branch master # Changes to be committed: # (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage) # # new file: Proj01.xcodeproj/project.xcworkspace/contents.xcworkspacedata # new file: Proj01.xcodeproj/project.xcworkspace/xcuserdata/jeremy.xcuserdatad/UserInterfaceState.xcuserstate # new file: Proj01.xcodeproj/project.xcworkspace/xcuserdata/jeremy.xcuserdatad/WorkspaceSettings.xcsettings # new file: Proj01.xcodeproj/xcuserdata/jeremy.xcuserdatad/xcdebugger/Breakpoints.xcbkptlist # new file: Proj01.xcodeproj/xcuserdata/jeremy.xcuserdatad/xcschemes/FlipCard.xcscheme # new file: Proj01.xcodeproj/xcuserdata/jeremy.xcuserdatad/xcschemes/xcschememanagement.plist
but is it actually a good practice to do so? (one time Xcode crashed and the folder .xcodeproj was gone).
- Pushing over SSH to a GIT repository with Xcode 4.6
- Xcode 4.4 - no remotes found
- Cound not check out svn with xcode 5 and Xcode Crashes if enable svn
- Committing within Xcode (using Git) any image files?
- Add file to XCode project but NOT git using XCode only?
- XCode — what does working copy mean, anyway?

As said your .xcodeproj is very important and should be included in your commit
I just want to add this link about using xcode with git which helped me a lot : http://shanesbrain.net/2008/7/9/using-xcode-with-git
It’s important to add the
project.pbxproj file, but nothing else in the
.xcodeproj bundle needs to be under version control.
Well, since all the file references, build settings, target options are saved in the .xcodeproj file, yes, you should include it in your repository. I usually exclude most (if not all) user specific files, such as breakpoints, user interface state etc.
