Use this page to set up run/debug configurations for iOS/tvOS application extensions.
Container app target
Select a target of the main (container) application.
Select an extension target from the list.
Select a proper executable for your configuration.
In this field, type a list of arguments to be passed to the program in the format you would use in the command line. If necessary, click the button and type the desired arguments.
Specify the working directory to be used for running the application. This directory is the starting point for all relative input and output paths. By default, the field contains the directory where the project file resides. To specify another directory, click and select the directory.
Expand the list to view available path variables that you can use as a path to your working directory. In this case you do not need to specify any additional environment variables in the Environment variables field.
Create environment variables and specify their values.
Allow location simulation
Enable location simulation for the current run/debug configuration.
When the Allow location simulation checkbox is enabled, you can choose the location that will be simulated on your device or simulator. By default, the value is set to None, which means that the current device location will be used.
Select the application language that will be set at runtime.
Select the application region that will be set at runtime.
Make application active after launch
If the checkbox is selected, the application will be brought to the foreground after launch. Otherwise, it will run in the background while the IDE stays in focus. This setting is relevant for OS X applications only.
Inject Reveal library on launch
Select this checkbox to have the Reveal library automatically added to your project on launching Reveal.
Upload Reveal library on the device if necessary
Select this checkbox to have the Reveal library uploaded and signed on your device.
When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options:
Specify a name for the run configuration to quickly identify it among others when editing or running.
Allow parallel run
Allow running multiple instances of this run configuration in parallel.
By default, it is disabled, and when you start this configuration while another instance is still running, AppCode suggests stopping the running instance and starting another one. This is helpful when a run configuration consumes a lot of resources and there is no good reason to run multiple instances.
Store as project file
Save the file with the run configuration settings to share it with other team members. The default location is .idea/runConfigurations. However, if you do not want to share the .idea directory, you can save the configuration to any other directory within the project.
By default, it is disabled, and AppCode stores run configuration settings in .idea/workspace.xml.
The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your project as well as adjust default configurations templates.
Create a run/debug configuration.
Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.
Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.
The button is displayed only when you select a temporary configuration. Click this button to save a temporary configuration as permanent.
Move into new folder / Create new folder. You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.
To create a folder, select the configurations within a category, click , and specify the folder name. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.
Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag or and buttons.
To remove grouping, select a folder and click .
Click this button to sort configurations in the alphabetical order.
In this area, you can specify tasks to be performed before starting the selected run/debug configuration. The tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.
Click this icon to add one of the following available tasks:
Click this icon to remove the selected task from the list.
Click this icon to edit the selected task. Make the necessary changes in the dialog that opens.
⌥ ↑/⌥ ↓
Click these icons to move the selected task one line up or down in the list. The tasks are performed in the order that they appear in the list.
Show this page
Select this checkbox to show the run/debug configuration settings prior to actually starting the run/debug configuration.
Activate tool window
Otherwise, if the checkbox is cleared, the tool window is hidden. However, when the configuration is running, you can open the corresponding tool window for it yourself by pressing ⌥ 4 or ⌥ 5.
