Searching for resources in XCode

Unfortunately you can't search for resources used in XCode, it sucks. If you are using AppCode you do not have this problem.

Example: images used in .xib files won't be found in search.

Using the Search Navigator would only give you results in the .h & .m files. But, what about references in a xib/storyboard/plist etc?

To get around this, open terminal and use this nifty grep command (add whatever extensions you want to search for in the curly brackets):

grep -i -r --include=*.{xib,m,h} "filenamewithoutextention" /the/location/to/search/in
