iOS Dev Nugget 230 Shortcut to Generate Quick Help Documentation


Need to run a code review on your codebase? Hire me

Hitting cmd+opt+/ in Xcode while the cursor is on a type or function declaration will generate a quick help documentation for you. E.g.

With a function like this:

func foo(name: String) -> Int {}

This is generated:

/// Description
/// - Parameter name: name description
/// - Returns: return value description

Works with both Swift and Obj-C.

PS: This shortcut might already be used by another app. E.g. Alfred uses this for one of it's shortcuts. It's available via Editor > Structure > Add Documentation, so you can reassign a different shortcut.
