taking project to production
« on: November 25, 2013, 06:03:46 PM »
Dave,

I was prototyping and coding an app after reading all 3 of your books.  The prototype keeps getting stronger and stronger, and I almost dont want to start a new project.  I am not thrilled with how i named the prototype project.  Is there guide on what all references would require rename if i went that way?

Your books are awesome.

Dave,

Glad you have enjoyed the books!

It's actually very easy to rename a project:

1. In the Project Navigator, click twice (slowly) on the very first node until it becomes editable.
2. Enter the new project name
3. A dialog appears asking if you want to "Rename project content items". Click Rename.

That's it!

Kevin

Ok that worked.  I saw the folder names remained the old way.  Tried renaming with Finder, and then got a build fail.  Renamed back, and ok again.  Anyway to even get the folders to rename properly?
