|Summary||0004654: XCode required to **use** Slicer on mac|
I was helping a clinical researcher to set up 4.10 on mac, and I ran into the message asking to install git and XCode. Installing XCode is a long step that I would not expect to be required to use Slicer. I don’t think XCode was required in the past.
Apparently, we were able to proceed with “Not Now”, but it is not clear what (if any) functionality of Slicer would not be available due to this.
There is no mention of XCode requirements in the install instructions here: https://www.slicer.org/wiki/New_users#Installing_3D_Slicer 1

Others have reported this and it is extremely annoying.
The problem is caused by ExtensionWizard, which calls
I suspected that was the reason!
How about disabling that module by default, and only showing it when "Developer mode" is enabled? This would be a very harmless and effective fix, IMHO.
It could be a good option, too, but there is no mechanism implemented yet for disabling certain modules when developer mode is disabled. I've now changed ExtensionWizard to call
Ah, I see. I thought there was a mechanism, since it is possible to disable tests when not in dev mode. But your solution makes total sense. Thank you for fixing it!
