You can change name of a class in File Inspector at the right side of Xcode6.

  • open your class
  • go to File Inspector > Identify and type section
  • rename existing class in “name” field.

That’s all! Previously I manually rename the class name in the class file.

I’ve been using Find>Find & Replace in Project, it’s not perfect but it works.

I use this way:

  • You can positioning the cursor on the variable that you want rename
  • Select Editor – Edit all in Scope (^⌘E)
  • Rename the variable and automatically all variable occurrences is edit

From this tutorial.

Split up your iOS8 Swift Code

First things first, let’s rename our View Controller to be something more meaningful. Open up your ViewController.swift file and replace all references to ‘ViewController’ with our new name, ‘SearchResultsViewController’. Rename the file as well to SearchResultsViewController.swift.

If you try to run the app from here you’ll get a crash. This is because our storyboard file hasn’t been updated to know about the new class! So open up the Main.storyboard, select your ‘View Controller’ object in the scene (the left-hand side nav), and then select the Identity Inspector (right-hand side, third button.)

From here let’s change the class from ‘ViewController’ to ‘SearchResultsViewController’. Now we should be back on track. Check that the project still works, and let’s proceed.

Unfortunately, Apple hasn’t gotten around to implementing it yet.
