Find common xib and storyboard-related problems without running your app or writing unit tests.
Pass a path to your project to
ibanalyzer command line tool. Here's an example output you can expect:
$ ./ibanalyzer ~/code/Sample/ TwitterViewController doesn't implement a required @IBAction named: loginButtonPressed: TwitterViewController doesn't implement a required @IBOutlet named: twitterImageView LoginViewController contains unused @IBAction named: onePasswordButtonTapped: MessageCell contains unused @IBOutlet named: unreadIndicatorView MessagesViewController contains unused @IBAction named: infoButtonPressed
With IBAnalyzer, you're able to:
Find unimplemented outlets & actions in classes. Avoid crashes caused by exceptions, like the dreadful:
*** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSUnknownKeyException', reason: ' [<Sample.TwitterViewController 0x7fa84630a370> setValue:forUndefinedKey:]: this class is not key value coding-compliant for the key twitterImageView.'
@IBActions defined in code but not connected to from nibs. No more:
This is a new tool, used only on a handful of projects till now. If you encounter any bugs, please create new issues.
Doesn't work with Objective-C. Tested on Swift 3.0.
How It Works
IBAnalyzer starts by parsing all
.swift files in the provided folder. It then uses this data (wrapped in
AnalyzerConfiguration) to generate warnings. You can see the source of an analyzer checking connections between source code and nibs here.
New warnings can be implemented by adding a new type conforming to the
Analyzer protocol and initializing it in
main.swift. Check issues to learn about some ideas for new warnings.
CocoaPods (Build Phase integration)
Note: This can significantly slow-down your build times.
pod 'IBAnalyzer'to your
pod repo updateand then
- Go to target settings -> Build Phases and add a
New Run Script Phase. Change its name to something like
Use this script to run analysis on all files in your repository (possibly including 3rd party dependencies, like
or this one to run analysis only on a single folder:
Download the newest prebuilt binary from the Releases tab. Unpack and run using:
$ bin/ibanalyzer /path/to/your/project
- Clone or download the repo.

$ cd Build/MacOS
$ ./ibanalyzer /path/to/your/project
- SourceKitten – IBAnalyzer wouldn't be possible without it
- SwiftGen – inspiration for
- Sourcery – IBAnalyzer uses pretty much the same
