Platforms ios 7, requires ARC

Provides an implementation for debugQuickLookObject for UIView objects.
It renders the view as an image and return that image to Xcode for inspection.



  • checks for existing implementation of debugQuickLookObject on UIView. Futureproofing = nice.
  • automagically installs itself, no need to call methods
  • only installs itself for DEBUG builds.


  • Xcode 5.1 or higher
  • ARC

Check out LLDB-QuickLook, which provides the same (and more) for lldb.
No need to add the file to your projects, but you have to install it on each machine. Also, works a bit different.
