Release: QC Patch Xcode Template, v0.2

Release Type: Production
Version: 0.2
Release Notes


  • Rebuilt from scratch --- no longer depends on QCJP's work --- and, by extension, the Creative Commons "Attribution - NonCommercial - ShareAlike" license. My Xcode Template, as of version 0.2, is released into the Public Domain. You are free to use it for whatever --- commercial or non-commercial.
  • QCJP's headers were replaced with headers assembled directly from the QuartzComposer framework --- now located in the QuartzComposer/ folder of the project. I've exported a few more headers than QCJP had constructed, so there's some added functionality (namely, image input/output ports).
  • The project now automatically assigns an icon to the patch bundle, and installs it in /Library/Graphics/Patches/ for you each time you build, for faster edit-build-test workflow.

Installation Instructions

Uncompress the zip file. In Terminal, cd to the unzipped folder and do sudo ./install.sh.
