Xcode project syncing over cloud service

I’m developing an iOS app on two different Macs. I have a local git repo setup in xcode. Every time I switch Macs, I download the most recent xcode project folder from my backup cloud service, SugarSync. SugarSync automatically uploads any changes I make to the project to the cloud.

Is this unstable, or just simply a bad practice? Is there a better way to build a project on multiple computers for only one developer?

  • Getting a 403 response when trying to run 'pod setup'
  • xcode subversion settings to connect to network based repository
  • Xcode 6.1 acting weird with git
  • Global Xcode run scripts
  • Cannot find FileMerge (opendiff tool) but I have xcode 4.6 installed
  • xcodeproj under version control
  • How can I use git from within Xcode?
  • Will I ever run into problems if I don't clean before I build?

    I would suggest using github for something like this. You could push from one machine and pull from the other would would accomplish the same thing you are doing now.

    BUT doing what you are doing now should still work, I’ve done the same with Dropbox in the past.

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
