xcbeautify

Build Status Latest Release License

xcbeautify is a little beautifier tool for xcodebuild.

Similar to xcpretty, but faster.

Features

  • 2x faster than xcpretty.
  • Human-friendly and colored output.
  • Supports the new build system’s output.
  • Supports Xcode’s parallel testing output.
  • Supports formatting Swift Package Manager output.
  • Supports formatting Bazel output.
  • Supports macOS & Linux.
  • Written in Swift: xcbeautify compiles to a static binary which you can bring anywhere. This also means less Ruby-dependant in your development environment and CI.

Note: xcbeautify does not support generating JUnit or HTML test reports. In fact, you shouldn’t rely on xcodebuild‘s output to generate test reports. We suggest using trainer or XCTestHTMLReport to generate test reports from xcodebuild‘s generated TestSummaries.plist files.

Fun fact

xcbeautify uses itself to format its CI build logs.

Installation

If you use macOS 10.14.3 or earlier, install Swift 5 Runtime Support for Command Line Tools first:

brew cask install thii/swift-runtime/swift-runtime

Homebrew

brew install xcbeautify

Swiftbrew

swift brew install thii/xcbeautify

Mint

mint install thii/xcbeautify

CocoaPods

pod 'xcbeautify'

The xcbeautify binary will be installed at Pods/xcbeautify/xcbeautify

Build from source

git clone https://github.com/thii/xcbeautify.git
cd xcbeautify
make install

Usage

xcodebuild [flags] | xcbeautify

If you want xcbeautify to exit with the same status code as xcodebuild (e.g. on a CI):

set -o pipefail && xcodebuild [flags] | xcbeautify

For parallel and concurrent destination testing, it helps to use unbuffered I/O for stdout and to redirect stderr to stdout.

&1 | xcbeautify
“>

NSUnbufferedIO=YES xcodebuild [flags] 2>&1 | xcbeautify
&1 | xcbeautify
“>

swift test [flags] 2>&1 | xcbeautify

Parse Bazel’s building and testing output:

&1 | xcbeautify
“>

set -o pipefail && bazel build //path/to/package:target 2>&1 | xcbeautify
&1 | xcbeautify
“>

set -o pipefail && bazel test //path/to/package:target 2>&1 | xcbeautify

Future work

  • Write more tests

Development

Generate Xcode project:

make xcode

Build with Bazel:

bazel build //Sources/xcbeautify

Release a new version, say x.y.z:

make release version=x.y.z
