Install Xcode 4 on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

Macintosh and iOS developers upgrading to Lion are in for a slice of annoyance, courtesy of Xcode 4.

Xcode was one of the first programs I installed after the Lion upgrade, but after downloading the massive (4GB+) setup file for the second time – direct from the Mac App store – I was met with an error informing me that Xcode was not compatible with Lion.

But I downloaded it straight from the Mac App Store, where all of the latest software is available, right?

Well yeah, that is correct, kinda. Unfortunately it seems that anyone who shelled out for Xcode 4 on Snow Leopard is being directed to the old version. There is a new version available on the Mac App Store, but if you’re reinstalling from your purchase history then you’re downloading the wrong thing, man.

So don’t download Xcode from your purchase history! Head over to this page and grab Xcode¬†4.1 instead.

Web & Coding Tools for Mac OS X

Here’s three essential tools for anyone who uses Mac OS X for coding or remote admin.

FTP: FileZilla

If you work on a remote machine of any sort the chances are you’re going to need to send files to and from your local terminal.

FileZilla is not just the best open source FTP client I’ve ever used, it’s the best FTP client I’ve ever used period – it’s fast, free and dead easy to use, as well as being available for all three major platforms. I can’t recommend the Mac OS X version highly enough – it’s essential.

You can grab the latest version of FileZilla here, and remember, it’s donation-ware so if you love it, hit up PayPal and help out.
