Xcode Snapshots

Steven Fisher:

I’m thrilled this feature exists, and I’ll be using it from now on. I think you should give it a try, too. Even if you commit to your source control system constantly, this will make commits you won’t think to, and without any action on your part.

Interesting. I’ve never really figured out what Xcode snapshots are for, when I already have version control.

In case anyone is wondering why this is nowhere to be found in the project’s settings, it’s because it’s in Xcode’s preferences. (Took me several minutes to figure that out.) https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/ToolsLanguages/Conceptual/Xcode4UserGuide/Building/Building.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40010215-CH9-SW71 ("Customize Your Build and Run Workflow “) has info on how to change these settings: it’s a checkbox under the "Build Succeeds” step.

Xcode (4.4.1) on Mountain Lion snapshots eat up hard disk space.
