RestKit with Xcode4 but not as a GitHub submodule
I was following the readme to
get started using RestKit. Everything works just fine when adding RestKit as a GitHub submodule.
Is there a way I can add RestKit to an already existing Xcode 4 project but not as a GitHub submodule?
The project I want to add RestKit to is not set up with GitHub repository and will actually go into a subversion repository instead.
Thanks in advance.

I just downloaded it, placed it in the root of myproject, unzipped it and renamed it to RestKit.
At the end of the day a git submodule is merely a folder on your hard drive. However, from git’s “viewpoint” it is recognized as a reference to another repository (at a specific commit) rather than a folder of files.
So if you are using git only (which you are not in this case) then it is a simple yet quite powerful mechanism of nesting projects or including libraries.
To answer your question, I guess you could do it all from the command line, which might be quicker than downloading and unzipping the source code (depending on your preference of course):
cd /path/to/your/project git submodule add git://github.com/RestKit/RestKit.git RestKit cd RestKit # Checkout the current stable branch git checkout 0.9-stable # Remove the git repository rm -fr .git/
From here you can configure your project according to the installation guide
