AppCode enables using numerous run/debug configurations. Each run/debug configuration represents a named set of run/debug startup properties. When you perform run, debug, or test operations with AppCode, you always start a process based on one of the existing configurations using its parameters.
AppCode comes with a number of run/debug configuration types for the various running, debugging and testing issues. You can create your own run/debug configurations of specific types.
Each run/debug configuration type has its own default settings. Whenever a new run/debug configuration of the respective type is created, it is based on these default settings.
Types of run/debug configurations
Run configurations in AppCode is an equivalent of Xcode schemes and they are kept synced with Xcode schemes.
Temporary configurations are marked with semi-transparent icons and are managed same way as the permanent configurations.
By default, 5 temporary configurations are allowed per project. You can change this limit via the Edit Configurations dialog.
Permanent configurationA configuration of this type is explicitly created or taken from the corresponding schemes, if you are working with an existing Xcode project.
Default run/debug configuration settings
The default run/debug configuration settings appear in the Run/Debug Configurations dialog under the nodeDefaults. They denote the settings that are used when new run/debug configurations are created.
You can set the default settings for a specific configuration type that will become applicable to any run/debug configuration of this type created later. Changing defaults does not affect the existing run/debug configurations.
The process of editing per-type default configuration settings is described in Changing Run/Debug Configuration Defaults. The process of creating or editing custom run/debug configurations is described in Creating and Editing Run/Debug Configurations.
