Starting release 5.0, embedXcode supports Xcode 8 on macOS 10.12 El Capitan.
However, some users have experienced difficulties during the installation of embedXcode.
Most of the issues seem related to files permissions.
1- Repair Files Permissions
Before installing embedXcode, I strongly recommend to open the Disk Utility and launch a First Aid.
In some cases, the previous installation of embedXcode goes to /Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates instead of ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates —under the Home directory.
Please delete the /Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates folder.
2- Fix ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates Owner
If the ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates folder may be owned by root, perform.
sudo chown -R user:staff ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates
3- Launch the Installation Manually
In case the automatic installation fails,
- Open a Terminal window.
- Launch the command
sudo installer -pkg embedXcode-231.pkg -target /
Please refer to Perform a manual installation if the package fails
4- Delete the Previous Installation Manually
There are two places to look after
- ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/File Templates
- /Library/Developer/Xcode/File Templates
- Delete all the embedXcode-related files on those 2 folders,
- then proceed with the installation again.
