Installing Data Abstract for Use in Xcode

Installing Data Abstract on your Mac so that it can be used from within Xcode is easy:

The "Data Abstract for Cocoa.dmg" download includes all the necessary files. Simply mount the .dmg and copy its content to a folder of your choosing, for example "~/Developer/Data Abstract".

Supported Versions

Data Abstract has been tested with Xcode 6 and later. We recommend staying with the latest version of Xcode. For Swift, Remoting focuses on supporting Swift 2.0 and later, but will probably also work well with previous versions (maybe with minor modifications needed to any generated code).


The trial version is fully functional without any technical limitations, however your apps will display a trial message when run and are not licensed for distribution. IDE functionality will disable after the 30-day trial period is over.

Full Version

Installing the full version of Data Abstract is easy. Simply download the installer from the licensed downloads page, and run it. You can update from the trial to the full version, and update to newer versions, without needing to uninstall.

If you don't have a full license for Data Abstract yet, you can purchase one here.
