This repository is created for the revamp purpose of iComponent framework. Where we categorised all frameworks individually.

Create Framework with Cocoapods:

Cocoapods is an excellent tool for managing third party dependencies in a project. It not only provides a way for easily integrating those dependencies but also allows you create your own dependencies and manage them as well.

1. Overview:

  • In this article I’m going to show you how to develop and distribute in-house private frameworks using Cocoapods. This is known as a private pod and is described in great detail on the cocoapods site.

2. Steps to Create Pod Project:

  • Create your Pod Repository on Github
  • CocoaPods provides a nice utility to help you setup your Pod project along with a test app and testing framework. So to generate your Pod project, just run the following command while standing at your empty github repo directory.
    • pod lib create [POD_NAME]
  • After the completion of this command the .workspace project will open up automatically. If it does not, open the .workspace file in the sample project. You will see a ReplaceMe.m file in the pod target.
  • This is the location where you will put the files [.h,.m, .swift] that you want to share with your pod. You will also see the Podspec Metadata folder as well. Next, we need to edit the podspec file.
  • Edit the Podspec File: Run below command before any changes in podspec file
    • pod lib lint <Pod_Name>.podspec
  • It gives error with podspec file. So we’ll need to resolve those issues. To do so, we need to do the following.
    • Specify the proper summary of our pod
    • Add some description
    • Replace the <GITHUB_USERNAME> with our Github’s username
    • Specify the proper swift version. Add s.swift_version = ‘4.0’
    • Again run lint process after above steps:
      • pod lib lint <Pod_Name>.podspec
  • Necessary steps:
    • Provide tagging to your Pod with below commands:
      • git tag ‘<Version_Number>’
      • git push --tags​​
  • Add Code in your Pod

    • Since we have created some reusable utility classes and extensions which we want to share with our team, we will drag and drop these files in the folder (i.e. Pod_Folder/Classes).
  • Github Setup
    • Create repository on Github and add file.
    • Put iComponentFramwork folder and .podspec in your git local repo and commit/ push the same on the github.

3. Add Framework to Cocoapods Repository:

  • Go to your own framework root folder and run the below command in terminal to register with Cocoapods trunk and it creates the session:
    • Registration Steps
      • pod trunk register <EMAIL_ADDRESS> ‘<USERNAME_WITHOUT_SPACE>’
    • Run below command to push your framework to CocoaPods repository:
      • pod trunk push <podspec_file_name.podspec>
    • Now we can access our framework with the name as well. Just like Alamofire installation:
      • pod ‘Alamofire’

4. Steps to Integrate Framework in Our Project:

  • Run below command at the project’s root folder
    • pod init
  • Then edit podfile and add below lines
    • To get framework from specific branch then run following command:
      • pod ‘iComponentFramwork’, :git => '<GIT_URL>', :branch => '<Branch_Name>'
    • To get framework by framework_name (If we already added framework in Cocoapods by step #2):
      • pod ‘iComponentFramwork’
    • To get framework from specific branch then run following command:
      • pod iComponentFramwork, :git => '<GIT_URL>', :tag => '3.1.1'
  • podfile_guide
  • Then run pod install command to install pod in your project.
