Project Overview


Try running this Terminal command:

bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wakatime/xcode-wakatime/master/WakaTime/install_dependencies.sh)

That will re-download the wakatime-cli dependency.

If that doesn't work, turn on debug mode and check your wakatime cli log file (~/.wakatime.log).

If there are no errors in your ~/.wakatime.log file, check your Xcode log file (/var/log/system.log).

For more general troubleshooting information, see wakatime/wakatime#troubleshooting.
