The WebKit Open Source Project

Debugging UIProcess on OS X

  1. Open the WebKit2 Xcode project

Note, the Xcode project file depends on the build location specified in the project itself. Choose Xcode > Preferences > Locations, click Locations, click the Advanced button, and ensure that the build location is Legacy.

  1. Set the project's build products location

    To find the WebKit you built, Xcode needs to know the build products location that build-webkit used. You can set the build products location in the project's build settings editor.
