I downloaded a sample project to learn how to make a UIPageViewController, and I am trying to essentially fork that project and need to add a third-party library. Right now, it does not look like I have a .xcworkspace file in my project. When I try and install the cocoapods, I first run
sudo gem install cocoapods - in the specific project directory in my terminal
pod install - in that same directory
I am receiving an error in the terminal "No podfile found in the project directory."
Is this happening because I don't have a .xcworkspace file? Am I installing the podfile correctly?
sudo gem install CocoaPods -> This installs CocoaPods as a piece
of software on your machine.
Go to the root of your project directory and execute
pod init ->
This will add a base Podfile to your project.
Add the external dependencies that you have to this Podfile by editing it.
pod install which will fetch all the external dependencies
mentioned by you, and associate it with a
.xcworkspace file of
your project. This
.xcworkspace file will be generated for you if
you already do not have one.
From here on, you should use
.xcworkspace file instead of
target 'MyApp' do pod 'AFNetworking', '~> 3.0' end
AFNetworking is the pod and
3.0 is the specific version that I want to install.
If you want to add a library from github to your own project, after installing gems, do firstly "pod init" look at from github cocoapod description and then add it after target line in podfile. Save and run "pod install". It would be successfully added on your project.
