Adding local docsets to Xcode

with one comment

I’ve been playing around with core-plot, a graphing library for MacOS/iOS, which ships with a local dotset.  A normal double click on the docset from Finder wasn’t enough to read it, after a bit of Googling the solution seems straightforward:

  1. Shutdown Xcode.
  2. Copy the .docset in to ~/Library/Developer/Shared/Documentation/DocSets
  3. Restart Xcode.

If you want to check that Xcode has picked up the new docset then look in Xcode Preferences under Downloads.
