Ios Problem Overview
I'm working on an Xcode 7 Playground that has many things running at once. Whenever I make an edit, it refreshes, restarts what was running and runs through the entire code again. That crashes my playground around every 15 minutes. Is there a way to prevent playgrounds from automatically running whenever I make an edit?
Solution 1 - Ios
In the lower-left part of the Playground there's a right-facing blue arrow, looking like a "play" button.
Do a long click on this button and you will get two options: "Automatically Run" and "Manually Run".
Choose the latter to put the Playground is manual mode and start/stop its execution yourself by clicking on this button.
You can also trigger the code execution by making a custom shortcut to the "Execute Playground" Editor menu command.
Xcode > Preferences... then go to
Key Bindings, scroll down to
Editor Menu for Playground and add a new shortcut of your choice by double-clicking in the right column in front of the
Execute Playground command.
Solution 2 - Ios
Actually, you CAN map a shortcut for "Execute Playground" to Cmd+R.
Use macOS keyboard shortcuts, instead of Xcode's keybindings.
System Preferences >
App shortcuts, click on
And don't worry for conflicts (at least up to Xcode 9):
Execute Playground is not available for standard Xcode projects, and
Run is not active for Playgrounds.
