Where are the [hidden] nibs and other resources?

  • In the Finder, when I open up my app's package, I find all my nib
    files and other resources.  If I open the package of an Apple app,
    some nibs and other resources are in there, but many are not.  Where
    are they?  Why aren't they there?  Can I hide my stuff, too?  Should
    I hide my stuff, too?
  • Maybe you aren't looking in their localized resource folders?

    Whatever it is you're looking for is probably either being created
    programatically or pulled out of another bundle.

    Somewhere else : maybe these resources are parts of a framework
    (private or public) or plugins. For instance, Xcode package is
    relatively empty.

    Nowhere: some nibs just miss some of their components because they are
    not required and it both prevents edition and reduce the size footprint.

    See above

    Yes. If you don't want your nib to be editable for instance (they
    would still be visible though).

    Generally, no.
