Today’s tip is from @mb@twitter.com about localization:

🌍 Ever forget to localize a string? Use Xcode’s Refactor → Wrap in NSLocalized String command to make localizing your UI copy a snap.

Right click on any string, run the command, add the comment, and you’re done. t.co/LroOb0fDsW

A testing tip from @bcapps@twitter.com:

If you use @pointfreeco@twitter.com’s SnapshotTesting library, you can see the images and diffs for failing tests right from within Xcode’s Log Navigator. They use a recent Xcode feature called Test Attachments, and it’s so handy. ✨

Today’s tip is from @bcapps@twitter.com:

Use the 🔎 icon in Xcode’s Search Navigator to search for patterns like <Any>. Then, you copy and paste those patterns into the Replace field to do large, complex find and replace operations.

A good example might be making all your classes final. 💫

Another tip from @mliberatore@twitter.com:

If you work on one project every day, you’re probably tired of cd-ing to that directory. Save keystrokes by adding "cd /project/directory/here" to your .bash_profile or .zshenv. Now, every new Terminal window and tab will start there!

Every week, one of our iOS devs shares a special tip in the engineering meeting. Here’s this week’s tip from @mliberatore@twitter.com:
