Finder Sync

In OS X, the Finder Sync extension point lets you cleanly and safely modify the Finder’s user interface to express file synchronization status and control. Unlike most extension points, Finder Sync does not add features to a host app. Instead, it lets you modify the behavior of the Finder itself.

Finder Sync Extensions

With a Finder Sync extension you register one or more folders for the system to monitor. Your Finder Sync extension then sets badges, labels, and contextual menus for any items in the monitored folders. You can also use the extension point’s API to add a toolbar button to the Finder window or a sidebar icon for the monitored folder.

Finder Sync supports apps that synchronize the contents of a local folder with a remote data source. It improves user experience by providing immediate visual feedback directly in the Finder. Badges display the sync state of each item, and contextual menus let users manage folder contents. Custom toolbar buttons can invoke global actions, such as opening a monitored folder or forcing a sync operation.

A Finder Sync extension can:

  • Register a set of folders to monitor.

  • Receive notifications when the user starts or stops browsing the content of a monitored folder.

    For example, the extension receives notification when the user opens a monitored folder in the Finder or in an Open or Save dialog.

  • Add, remove, and update badges and labels on items in a monitored folder.

  • Display a contextual menu when the user Control-clicks an item inside a monitored folder.

  • Add a custom button to the Finder’s toolbar.

    Unlike badges and contextual menu items, this button is always available, even when the user is not currently browsing a monitored folder.

Creating a Finder Sync Extension in Xcode

To create a Finder Sync extension, add a new target to your OS X project using the Finder Sync Extension template. This template contains a custom subclass of the class. This subclass acts as your extension’s primary class. The system automatically instantiates this class and calls the protocol methods in response to user actions.

For detailed information on adding extensions, see Creating an App Extension.

Set the Required Property List Values

For OS X to recognize and automatically load the Finder Sync extension, the extension target’s file must contain the following entries:

    In particular, the key must provide the name of your subclass. The system automatically instantiates this class when the Finder first launches. It instantiates an additional copy whenever an Open or Save dialog is displayed. Each copy runs in its own process.

    The Finder Sync Extension Xcode template configures these keys automatically. If you want to change the principal class, modify the value of the key.

    Specify Which Folders to Monitor

    You specify the folders you want to monitor in your Finder Sync extension’s method, using the default object. In most cases, you want to let the user specify these folders in UI provided by the containing app. You can pass this data between the containing app and your Finder Sync extension using shared user defaults.

    To enable shared user defaults, first add both your Finder Sync extension and its containing app to an app group. This group creates a shared container that both processes can access. For each target, open the Xcode capabilities pane and turn on the App Groups capability. Provide a unique identifier for the shared group. Be sure to use the same identifier for both the Finder Sync extension and the containing app.

    This process adds a entry to the targets’ entitlements.

      For more information about app groups, see Adding an App to an App Group.

      Next, instantiate a new object by calling and passing in the shared group’s identifier. This method creates a user default object that loads and saves data to the shared container.

        Set Up Badge Images

        Create your badge images so that each can be drawn at up to x pixels. For each image, fill the entire frame edge-to-edge with your artwork (in other words, use no padding). The system determines the size and placement of a badge image on a monitored item. The pixel size ranges at which your badge might be displayed are as follows:

        • Retina screens 12x12 through x

        • Nonretina screens 8x8 through x

        To add a badge image to your Finder Sync controller’s configuration, use the method, as shown here:

          You would typically do this in the sync controller’s initialization method. You can set up as many badge images as you need. The badge identifier string that you specify here allows you to later retrieve the image for applying it to a monitored item, as described in A Typical Finder Sync Use Case.

          Implement FIFinderSync methods

          The protocol declares a number of methods that you can implement to monitor and control the Finder. These methods let you receive notifications when the user observes monitored items, add contextual menus to monitored items, and add custom toolbar and sidebar icons.

          Receiving Notifications When Users Observe Monitored Items

          Implement these methods to receive notifications as the user browses through the contents of the monitored folders.

          • The system calls this method when the user begins looking at the contents of a monitored folder or one of its subfolders. It passes the URL of the currently open folder as an argument.

            The system calls only once for each unique URL. As long as the content remains visible in at least one Finder window, any additional Finder windows that open to the same URL are ignored.

          • The system calls this method when the user is no longer looking at the contents of the given URL. As with , the Open and Save dialogs are tracked separately from the Finder.

          • The system calls this method when a new item inside the monitored folder becomes visible to the user. This method is called once for each file initially shown in the Finder’s view. The system continues to call this method as each new file scrolls into view.

            You typically implement this method to check the state of the item at the provided URL, and then call the Finder Sync controller’s method to set the appropriate badge. You might also want to track these URLs, in order to update their badges whenever their state changes.

          Adding Contextual Menu Items

          Implement the method to provide a custom contextual menu. The argument indicates the type of menu that your extension should create. Each menu kind corresponds to a different type of user interaction.

          • The user Control-clicked one or more items inside your monitored folder. Your extension should present menu items that affect the selected items.

          • The user Control-clicked the Finder window’s background while browsing the monitored folder. Your extension should present menu items that affect the contents of the current folder.

          • The user Control-clicked a sidebar item that represents the monitored folder or part of its contents. Your extension should present menu items that effect the contents of the selected item.

          • The user clicked on the toolbar button provided by the extension. Because the toolbar button is always available, the user may or may not be browsing the monitored folder at this time. Your extension may present menu items that represent global actions that should always be available to the user. It can also present menu items that affect selected items inside your monitored folder, if any exist.

          You can get additional information about the currently selected items using the Finder Sync controller’s and methods. The method returns the URL of the file or folder that the user Control-clicked. The method returns an array containing the URLs of all the currently selected items in the Finder window.

          and return valid values only inside the method or inside one of its menu actions. If the user is not browsing the monitored folder (for example, if the user clicked the toolbar button while outside the monitored folder), both of these methods return .

          Adding a Custom Toolbar Button

          To add a custom toolbar button to the Finder window, implement the getter methods for the following properties:

          When the user clicks the toolbar button, the system calls your primary class’s method, passing as the menu kind. Your extension must return an appropriate menu. The system then displays this menu.

          Adding a Sidebar Icon

          You can provide a custom sidebar icon for any of the root folders your extension is monitoring. If the user drags one of these root folders into the Finder’s sidebar, your icon will be displayed instead of the default folder icon.

          To provide a custom sidebar icon, add the icons to your containing app. For this to work, both your app’s icons and the sidebar icons must be included in an inconset. If you are using an asset catalog to manage your app’s icons, you will need to switch to an iconset.

          To create an iconset

          1. Create an iconset folder. This must be a folder named <folder name>. You can pick any name you want for the folder name, but it must end with the extension.

          2. Create a complete set of app icons. Your icons must use the following filenames and image sizes:

            Filename

            Image size

            icon_16xpng

            16 x 16 px

            [email protected]

            32 x 32 px

            icon_32xpng

            icon_xpng

            x px

            [email protected]

            x px

            Place these icons in your iconset folder. For more information on creating app icons, see Designing App Icons in macOS Human Interface Guidelines.

          3. Create a complete set of sidebar icons. These icons must be template images—monochromatic images that are drawn just using black and transparency. The icons must use the following filenames and sizes:

            File Name

            Image Size

            sidebar_16xpng

            16 x 16 px

            [email protected]

            32 x 32 px

            sidebar_18xpng

            32 x 32 px

            [email protected]

            64 x 64 px

            sidebar_32xpng

            x px

            [email protected]

            x px

            Place these icons in your iconset folder. For more information on creating template images, see Create Template Images to Put Inside Toolbar Controls in macOS Human Interface Guidelines.

          4. Add the iconset folder to your Xcode project. Make sure it is included in the containing app’s target.

          5. Open the containing app’s . Add an entry for the Icon File (). The value should be the name of your iconset folder (everything before the extension).

          6. In the containing app’s general pane, make sure the App Icons source is not using an asset catalog. If the asset catalog has been turned off, the source will display a button saying “Use Asset Catalog” (see Figure ). If the app icon’s source setting displays a popup button, click the button and select “Don’t use asset catalogs.”

          A Typical Finder Sync Use Case

          This section presents a typical use case. Your app manages and badges all the items inside the monitored folder. Because the user can populate the monitored folder with an arbitrary number of subfolders and files, the list of monitored items could grow to be very large. You must therefore consider the performance implications of adding and updating all of these badges. Specifically, avoid adding or updating the badge of any item that is not currently visible.

          When dealing with a potentially large number of items, always provide the badges on demand. Provide badges to items only as they appear in the Finder window, and record all the URLs for the badges you set, so that you can update them as necessary.

          1. The system calls when the user first opens the monitored folder or one of its subfolders.

          2. The system calls for each item that is currently being drawn onscreen. Inside this method, do the following:

            1. Check the state of the item and set its badge by calling .

              Your app is responsible for defining the states and their corresponding badges. For example, a typical syncing app might have badges that indicate unsynced local changes, syncing operations in progress, successfully synced items, and items with syncing errors or conflicts.

            2. Record the URL of every item that has received a badge.

              Your app must to continue to monitor the state of these items and update their badges as necessary. When an item’s state changes, update its badge by calling .

          3. The system calls when the user closes the folder. Delete all the URLs for the badged items inside that folder and stop monitoring their state.

          Performance Concerns

          Finder Sync extensions may have a much longer lifespan than most other extensions. Because of this long lifespan, you must take particular care to avoid any possible performance issues. Ideally, Finder Sync extensions should spend most of their time running but idle. Limit the number of resources the extension consumes. Most important, be sure to avoid leaking any resources. Over time, even a small trickle can grow into a serious problem.

          The system may also launch additional copies of your extension whenever an Open or Save dialog is displayed. This means that the user may have multiple copies of your extension running at once, and some may be very short lived. Therefore, it’s generally best if the extension focuses on handling the badges, contextual menus, and toolbar buttons. Place in a separate service (a Login Item or Launch Agent) any code that performs the sync, updates state, or communicates with remote data sources. This approach ensures that there is only one syncing service running at a time.

          For more information about communicating with the login item or launchd agent, see Using the Objective-C NSXPCConnection API in Daemons and Services Programming Guide.

          Finder Sync Extension

          The macOS Finder Sync Extension allows extending the Finder&#;s UI to show the file synchronization status.
          Apple&#;s documentation on the macOS FinderSyncExtension is good, but it lacks more info on communication between the MainApp and the Finder Sync Extension. In this article, one such example is shown as a possible solution for bidirectional communication between the two.

          Creating the extension

          Once you&#;ve created your macOS project, select the project in the project navigator and add the new target &#;Finder Sync Extension&#;.

          Xcode macOS extensions

          Sandboxing

          Depending on your project&#;s needs, you may want/need to disable the App Sandbox. If your project is going to use a virtual file system such as osxfuse, the App Sandbox needs to be disabled.

          Xcode Project App Sandbox Settings

          You&#;ll have to leave the App Sandbox enabled for the Finder Sync Extension though. Set &#;User Selected File&#; permissions to None in the Finder Sync Extension. If you leave it to &#;Read Only&#;, which it is by default, the extension won&#;t be able to receive messages from the MainApp.

          Xcode Project App Sandbox Settings Enabled

          App groups

          To be able to communicate with one another, the MainApp and the Finder Sync Extension must belong to the same App Group. Create an App Group in a pattern like:

          What the demo app demonstrates

          The demo application consists of two components: FinderSyncExample and FinderSyncExtension. FinderSyncExample is what we call the &#;MainApp&#;.
          When started, the MainApp offers a path to a demo folder which will be created when the Set button is pressed. After successful folder creation, the app shows controls for modifying file sync statuses. Beneath the controls, there is a label showing a custom message which can be sent from the Finder extension menu.

          MainApp updating file statuses in the Finder

          Demo app main window

          It is possible to set a status for three files: file1.txt, file2.txt and file3.txt. Select a desired status from combo-box and tap the appropriate Set button. Observe how Finder applies sync status to the relevant file.

          Finder with file sync statuses

          Finder sending message to the MainApp

          On the Finder window, open the SyncExtension menu and select &#;Example Menu Item&#; on it. Observe how on the MainApp window message-label is updated to show a message received from the Finder.

          Multiple FinderSyncExtension instances can exist simultaneously

          Single App can have multiple FSEs running

          It is possible that more than one Finder Sync Extension is running. One Finder Sync Extension can be running in a regular Finder window. The other FinderSyncExtension process can be running in an open-file or save-document dialog. In that case, MainApp has to be able to update all FinderSyncExtension instances.
          Keep this in mind when designing the communication between the MainApp and the FinderSyncExtension.

          Bidirectional communication

          Communication between the MainApp and the FinderSyncExtension can be implemented in several ways. The concept described in this article relies on Distributed Notifications. Other options may include , or .
          We chose Distributed Notifications because it fits with the One-application &#; Multiple-extensions concept.

          Both the MainApp and the FinderSyncExtension processes are able to subscribe to certain messages. Delivering and receiving messages is like using the well-known NSNotificationCenter.

          Sending a message from MainApp to FinderSyncExtension

          To be able to receive notifications, FinderSyncExtension registers as an observer for certain notifications:

          NSString* observedObject = self.mainAppBundleID; NSDistributedNotificationCenter* center =[NSDistributedNotificationCenter defaultCenter];   [center addObserver:self selector:@selector(observingPathSet:) name:@"ObservingPathSetNotification" object:observedObject];   [center addObserver:self selector:@selector(filesStatusUpdated:) name:@"FilesStatusUpdatedNotification" object:observedObject];

          NSString* observedObject = self.mainAppBundleID; NSDistributedNotificationCenter* center = [NSDistributedNotificationCenter defaultCenter]; [center addObserver:self selector:@selector(observingPathSet:) name:@"ObservingPathSetNotification" object:observedObject]; [center addObserver:self selector:@selector(filesStatusUpdated:) name:@"FilesStatusUpdatedNotification" object:observedObject];

          The relevant code is available in the class.

          For the MainApp to be able to send a message to FinderSyncExtension, use NSDistributedNotificationCenter:

          NSDistributedNotificationCenter* center =[NSDistributedNotificationCenter defaultCenter]; [center postNotificationName:name object:NSBundle.mainBundle.bundleIdentifier userInfo:data deliverImmediately:YES];

          NSDistributedNotificationCenter* center = [NSDistributedNotificationCenter defaultCenter]; [center postNotificationName:name object:NSBundle.mainBundle.bundleIdentifier userInfo:data deliverImmediately:YES];

          More details are available in the class.
          belongs to the MainApp target. It handles sending messages to FinderSyncExtension and receiving messages from the extension.
          belongs to FinderSyncExtension target. It handles sending messages to the MainApp and receiving messages from the MainApp.

          Throttling messages

          In real-world apps, it can happen that an app wants to update the sync status of many files in a short time interval. For that reason, it may be a good idea to gather such updates and send them all in one notification. macOS will complain about sending too many notifications in a short interval. It can also give up on delivery of notifications in such cases.
          The class shows the usage of for throttling support. A timer checks every ms if there are queued updates to be delivered to FinderSyncExtension.

          For a clearer display, a sequence diagram showing sending messages from the MainApp to FinderSyncExtension is given bellow.

          FSE sequence diagram

          Sending messages from FinderSyncExtension to MainApp

          To send a message from FinderSync to the MainApp, NSDistributedNotificationCenter is used but in slightly different way:

          -(void) send:(NSString*)name data:(NSDictionary*)data &#;NSDistributedNotificationCenter* center =[NSDistributedNotificationCenter defaultCenter]; NSData* jsonData =[NSJSONSerialization dataWithJSONObject:data options:0 error:nil]; NSString* json =[NSString.alloc initWithData:jsonData encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]; [center postNotificationName:name object:json userInfo:nil deliverImmediately:YES]; &#;

          - (void) send:(NSString*)name data:(NSDictionary*)data { NSDistributedNotificationCenter* center = [NSDistributedNotificationCenter defaultCenter]; NSData* jsonData = [NSJSONSerialization dataWithJSONObject:data options:0 error:nil]; NSString* json = [NSString.alloc initWithData:jsonData encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]; [center postNotificationName:name object:json userInfo:nil deliverImmediately:YES]; }

          Notice that the JSON string is sent as the object of the notification, and not in the userInfo. That is necessary for these notifications to work properly.

          Restarting FinderSyncExtension on app launch

          Sometimes, it may be useful to restart the extension when your MainApp is launched. To do that, execute the following code when MainApp launches (i.e. in method):

          +(void) restart &#;NSString* bundleID =NSBundle.mainBundle.bundleIdentifier; NSString* extBundleID =[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@.FinderSyncExt", bundleID]; NSArray<NSRunningApplication*>* apps =[NSRunningApplication runningApplicationsWithBundleIdentifier:extBundleID]; ASTEach(apps, ^(NSRunningApplication* app)&#;NSString* killCommand =[NSString stringWithFormat:@"kill -s 9 %d", app.processIdentifier]; system(killCommand.UTF8String); &#;);   dispatch_after(dispatch_time(DISPATCH_TIME_NOW, (int64_t)(* NSEC_PER_SEC)), dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^&#;NSString* runCommand =[NSString stringWithFormat:@"pluginkit -e use -i %@", extBundleID]; system(runCommand.UTF8String); &#;); &#;

          + (void) restart { NSString* bundleID = NSBundle.mainBundle.bundleIdentifier; NSString* extBundleID = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@.FinderSyncExt", bundleID]; NSArray<NSRunningApplication*>* apps = [NSRunningApplication runningApplicationsWithBundleIdentifier:extBundleID]; ASTEach(apps, ^(NSRunningApplication* app) { NSString* killCommand = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"kill -s 9 %d", app.processIdentifier]; system(killCommand.UTF8String); }); dispatch_after(dispatch_time(DISPATCH_TIME_NOW, (int64_t) ( * NSEC_PER_SEC)), dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^{ NSString* runCommand = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"pluginkit -e use -i %@", extBundleID]; system(runCommand.UTF8String); }); }

          Debugging

          Debugging the FinderSyncExtension is pretty straightforward. Some options are described below.

          Debugging with Xcode alone

          It is possible to debug both MainApp and FinderSyncExtension simultaneously. First, start the MainApp running the Xcode target. Then, set the FinderSyncExtension scheme and run it.
          Set breakpoints in desired places in the MainApp source and in the FinderSyncExtension source.
          Sometimes, the FinderSyncExtension debug session may not be attached to the relevant process. In that case, it helps to relaunch the Finder: press to bring Force Quit Application dialog and then select the Finder and relaunch it.

          macOS Force Quit dialog

          Xcode should now attach the debug session properly to the new process.

          Debugging with AppCode + Xcode

          If you&#;re using AppCode, then you can launch the MainApp form AppCode and FinderSyncExtension from the Xcode. This way, you can see both logs and debug sessions a bit easier.

          Troubleshooting

          It could happen that, even though the MainApp and FinderSync processes are running, no file sync statuses are shown. It can also happen that the method is not being called at all.
          If that happens, check if you have other FinderSyncExtensions running on your MBP (ie Dropbox, pCloud&#;). You can check that in System Preferences -> Extensions -> Finder.
          Disable all extensions except your demo FinderSyncExtension and then see if the issue is still present.

          Testing

          It seems that there is not much room when it comes to testing the FinderSyncExtension. At the time of writing this post, the only way to test the extension would be to refactor the code into a framework and then have the framework tested.

          Conclusion

          FinderSyncExtension is a great way to show file sync statuses. Hopefully, you now have a better understanding on how to develop the extension. Solutions shown in this article are designed to be simple yet powerful enough to face real-world use cases.

          "Where is FinderSyncAPIExtension?" (Google Drive)

          I've had this issue for months. Today while staring yet again at the list of apps in the pop-up, I realized there were two Google Drive icons. One was listed under this path:

          and one under:

          They were different versions. The Profile 1 turned out to be from when my daughter logged in to her account on my computer (using Chrome, she uses a Chromebook).

          With the dialog still on the screen, I deleted Profile 1 and emptied the trash — the popup went away, as did the Google Drive menubar item. I opened Google Drive and got no popup. I logged out of the computer, then back in, and still no popup.

          So, perhaps having logged into another account at some point in the past (using Chrome, on an account where the Drive app/plugin is active) installed a different version. That version never gets updated, because I haven't logged back into that account? So, maybe it is being found to be in conflict/out of date?

          You installed a third-party cloud data client such as "Google Drive" that integrates with the Finder, and it isn't working. Either remove it, update it, or refer to its developer for support.

          If that can help, I had a similar issue today and discovered it was coming from Google Drive by putting the mouse over the icon in the top bar. The icon of the mouse was changing for a spinning wheel when over it. The issue disappeared (so as the pop up windows requiring to FinderSyncAPIExtention) the minute I opened Chrome and login the web page of Google Drive with my credentials.

          You installed a third-party cloud data client such as "Google Drive" that integrates with the Finder, and it isn't working. Either remove it, update it, or refer to its developer for support.

          Were you able to find out which cloud client (box, drive, dropbox, and onedrive) it was?

          Yes. Problem seems to be solved. Looks like my Spotify app on my iMac that was starting up automatically was causing the issue.

          If that can help, I had a similar issue today and discovered it was coming from Google Drive by putting the mouse over the icon in the top bar. The icon of the mouse was changing for a spinning wheel when over it. The issue disappeared (so as the pop up windows requiring to FinderSyncAPIExtention) the minute I opened Chrome and login the web page of Google Drive with my credentials.

          I have this problem too. I get the "where is" window on startup and occasionally at other times. Google Drive also sometimes silently fails to sync a file, and will only correct the problem when it is quit and restarted. These problems suggest a delayed response from the MacOS when Google drive is asking MacOS for something. I may have found a fix for this:

          Doyou have the "where is" window or the intermittent silent sync failures from Google Drive? If so, are you also running the DropBox sync app? For me the answer is Yes. (I need both because of different groups I need to share with.) To check this issue I turned off the DropBox app (deselected the setting "start dropbox on restart). Then I restarted my mac. There was no "where is" window this time. I'm hoping this will remain true. and maybe my sync problems will improve as well. What is your experience??

          I believe I fixed this problem on my three macs running Lion and El Capitan MacOS's. I have accounts on both Google Drive and Dropbox. When I quit the Dropbox application, the Google Drive application began updating reliably. When I later noticed a file that didn't update, I discovered that the dropbox application had restarted. To prevent this I went in System Preferences>accounts>login items and removed Dropbox from the list of login items.

          This worked for me except I had to:

          1. Go to Applications folder
          2. Double click Google Drive app (this worked almost immediately. However)
          3. I also had to click Cancel to close the find dialog.
