When I’m working on a swift project, I sometime’s get the urge to know how many lines of code I have actually written. It would be interesting to see. However, I’m not just going to sit there counting every single line, we’re programmers after all, we can do better!
Open up terminal and navigate to your project:
Next, type in one of the following lines of code to get the total number of lines in your project. It works by reading all the swift files (sorry objc users!) in your directory and counting up the lines.
find . -path ./Pods -prune -o -name '*.swift' -print0 ! -name '/Pods' | xargs -0 wc -l
find . -name '*.swift' -print0 | xargs -0 wc -l
If you have homebrew on your mac, there is a much easier way to show the number of lines. Navigate to your project using terminal:
Next, install Cloc
brew install cloc
Finally, type in one of the following commands
cloc . --exclude-dir=Pods
Done! How easy was that? Now you can brag to your friends that your project has 3 more lines of code than theirs.
