Getting xcode to recognize environment variables

Recommended Posts

It seems to be difficult (if not impossible) to get xcode to see external environment variables if you just open xcode the normal way. In other words, it doesn't seem to pick up stuff from environment.plist etc


So I created a simple shell script that sets the variables I need and then opens xcode and sure enough, the environment variables I set (as well as others that were set through my .bashrc) are available.


So then I thought I'd try and do this through Alfred since it has the ability to invoke a script. However, when I trigger a "Run Script" that just the shell script I created, the environment variable is no longer visible from Xcode.


Any ideas?
