Path to Current Xcode Document

This has been bugging me for awhile and I finally figured it out. Here’s how you can use Bash and AppleScript to get the file path to the current document selected in Xcode:


PATH=`osascript -e "tell application id \"\" to return path of text document 1 whose name ends with (word -1 of (get name of window 1))"`

echo $PATH

Bam. Now you can use an Xcode behavior to run a bash script and do whatever you want with the file.

Hint: try running uncrustify to auto-format it:

uncrustify -f $PATH
