I just installed the latest xcode on my Mac Mavericks. There should be a “Developer” folder created in the root folder. but I cannot find it. I am not sure if I installed it incorrectly or the latest version changed the installation path. please help.


From the release notes:

/Developer No Longer Exists

The simplification afforded by repackaging Xcode 4.3 as a single app bundle eliminates the need for the /Developer directory containing prior versions of Xcode. As a result, the Install Xcode application and the uninstall-devtools command line script are also no longer needed.

  • some complements to Xcode are not installed automatically, so you need create manually /Developer folder and install it there, because some scripts (python) look for files there, example: /Developer/Extras/Dictionary\ Development\ Kit , used by pyglossary

In your terminal run:

$ xcode-select --print-path

the output is the Developer folder.


In addition to what nerdwaller said, you can now access your developer tools by going to Top Bar -> XCode -> Open Developer Tools.
