Setting up a new Xcode project is as simple as ⇧⌘N. Unless you want to do things the right way, at which point there are a number of other configurations you need to worry about: .gitignore , .gitattributes , project level indentation settings, warning levels, etc. After doing the same setup procedure a few times, you can make it a relatively quick process. But it’s 2013, and we’re living in the future now. We have the technology to build tacocopters , but I still have to set my error levels manually? That’s just ridiculous.
