You can find the actual list hosted on GitHub (2,2k+⭐️).
The main reason for this is that the project is almost entirely driven by the community and this fact is truely amazing! In under just one year, the repository had a thousand stars on GitHub and it's counting! The list of awesome native Xcode extensions is open for everyone, so if you have an extension, please don't hesitate & create a pull request!
I'd like to say thank you for all the contributors, especially for takasek who categorized the list.
Are you using Xcode extensions at all?
Personally I'm using 1-2 extensions, but nothing more. Maybe everything should be collected under one gigantic extension application with the ability of turning individual features on or off?
Does anybody have time for that? 🤔
