UUID Generator is a free and simple Mac OS X application for generating Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs)
UUID Generator facilitates creation of UUID’s by providing a GUI interface for UUID generation, as well as providing your choice of generation algorithm: time/Ethernet based or pure random number algorithm. While Mac OS X provides the uuidgen command line tool, UUID Generator provides a superior experience.
A GUI-based interface provides for ease of access
Just double-click to generate your UUID.
Your choice of generation algorithms
CFUUID; e2fsprogs; e2fsprogs, force random; e2fsprogs, force time
Output to the Clipboard or to stdout
UUID Generator utilizes the Mac OS X Services architecture to provide UUID generation services from within your application. Working in Xcode? Just go to the Services Menu to easily obtain your UUID and have it inserted directly into your source code.
Generate as a string
Generate as individual UUID bytes
Generate as a CMPluginFactoryID
#define YOUR_CMPLUGINFACTORYID( CFUUIDGetConstantUUIDWithBytes( NULL,0xCA,0x77,0xB5,0x28,0xE5,0xCC,0x11,0xD6,0xB8,0x98,0x00,0x30,0x65,0x41,0x20,0xA4 ) ) /*CA77B528-E5CC-11D6-B898-0030654120A4*/
uuidgen may exist and may work, but as developers we understand simplicity and efficiency. The less we have to fumble with something, the more we can remain focused on our task at hand. UUID Generator was written to make UUID generation simple and easy, so we could focus on the real work that matters.
