Module: Pod::Podfile::DSL

Included in:
Pod::Podfile
Defined in:
lib/cocoapods-core/podfile/dsl.rb

Overview

The Podfile is a specification that describes the dependencies of the targets of one or more Xcode projects.

A Podfile can be very simple:

target 'MyApp'
pod 'AFNetworking', '~> 1.0'

An example of a more complex Podfile can be:

platform :ios, '9.0'
inhibit_all_warnings!

target 'MyApp' do
  pod 'ObjectiveSugar', '~> 0.5'

  target 'MyAppTests' do
    inherit! :search_paths
    pod 'OCMock', '~> 2.0.1'
  end
end

post_install do |installer|
  installer.pods_project.targets.each do |target|
    puts "#{target.name}"
  end
end

Root Options Configuration that applies to the Podfile as a whole. * `install!` declares the installation method and options to be used during installation. collapse

Dependencies The Podfile specifies the dependencies of each user target. * `pod` is the way to declare a specific dependency. * `podspec` provides an easy API for the creation of podspecs. * `target` is how you scope your dependencies to specific targets in your Xcode projects. collapse

Target configuration These settings are used to control the CocoaPods generated project. This starts out simply with stating what `platform` you are working on. `xcodeproj` allows you to state specifically which project to link with. collapse

Workspace This group list the options to configure workspace and to set global settings. collapse

Sources The Podfile retrieves specs from a given list of sources (repositories). Sources are __global__ and they are not stored per target definition. collapse

Hooks The Podfile provides hooks that will be called during the installation process. Hooks are __global__ and not stored per target definition. collapse

Instance Method Details

#abstract!(abstract = true) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Denotes that the current target is abstract, and thus will not directly link against an Xcode target.

# File 'lib/cocoapods-core/podfile/dsl.rb', line 523

def abstract!(abstract = true)
  current_target_definition.abstract = abstract
end

#abstract_target(name) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Defines a new abstract target that can be used for convenient target dependency inheritance.

Examples:

Defining an abstract target


abstract_target 'Networking' do
  pod 'AlamoFire'

  target 'Networking App 1'
  target 'Networking App 2'
end

Defining an abstract_target wrapping Pods to multiple targets


# Note: There are no targets called "Shows" in any of this workspace's Xcode projects
abstract_target 'Shows' do
  pod 'ShowsKit'

  # The target ShowsiOS has its own copy of ShowsKit (inherited) + ShowWebAuth (added here)
  target 'ShowsiOS' do
    pod 'ShowWebAuth'
  end

  # The target ShowsTV has its own copy of ShowsKit (inherited) + ShowTVAuth (added here)
  target 'ShowsTV' do
    pod 'ShowTVAuth'
  end

  # Our tests target has its own copy of
  # our testing frameworks, and has access
  # to ShowsKit as well because it is
  # a child of the abstract target 'Shows'

  target 'ShowsTests' do
    inherit! :search_paths
    pod 'Specta'
    pod 'Expecta'
  end
end

Parameters:

  • name (Symbol, String)

    the name of the target.

#ensure_bundler!(version = nil) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Raises a warning when CocoaPods is run using the Global Gemset. A Semantic version can be supplied to warn if the bundler version does not match the required version.

Examples:


ensure_bundler!

ensure_bundler! '~> 2.0.0'

Parameters:

  • version (String) (defaults to: nil)

    The required bundler version, in semantic version format.

  end
  unless ENV['BUNDLER_VERSION'].nil? || Requirement.create(version).satisfied_by?(Version.new(ENV['BUNDLER_VERSION']))
    raise Informative, "The installed Bundler version: #{ENV['BUNDLER_VERSION']} does not match the required version: #{version}"
  end
end

#generate_bridge_support!void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies that a BridgeSupport metadata document should be generated from the headers of all installed Pods.


This is for scripting languages such as MacRuby, Nu, and JSCocoa, which use it to bridge types, functions, etc.

#inherit!(inheritance) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Sets the inheritance mode for the current target.

Examples:

Inheriting only search paths


target 'App' do
  target 'AppTests' do
    inherit! :search_paths
  end
end

Parameters:

  • inheritance (Symbol)

    the inheritance mode to set.

    Available Modes:

    • :complete The target inherits all behaviour from the parent.
    • :none The target inherits none of the behaviour from the parent.
    • :search_paths The target inherits the search paths of the parent only.

# File 'lib/cocoapods-core/podfile/dsl.rb', line 551

def inherit!(inheritance)
  current_target_definition.inheritance = inheritance
end

#inhibit_all_warnings!Object

Inhibits all the warnings from the CocoaPods libraries.


This attribute is inherited by child target definitions.

If you would like to inhibit warnings per Pod you can use the following syntax:

pod 'SSZipArchive', :inhibit_warnings => true

Additionally, when you use inhibit_all_warnings! attribute, you can exclude a particular Pod from being inhibited using the following:

pod 'SSZipArchive', :inhibit_warnings => false

# File 'lib/cocoapods-core/podfile/dsl.rb', line 689

def inhibit_all_warnings!
  current_target_definition.inhibit_all_warnings = true
end

#install!(installation_method, options = {}) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies the installation method and options to be used when CocoaPods installs this Podfile.

The first parameter indicates the installation method to use; next parameters indicate installation options.

For now the only accepted installation method is 'cocoapods', so you'll always use this value for the first parameter; but more installation methods might be available in future versions.

Examples:

Specifying custom CocoaPods installation options


install! 'cocoapods',
         :deterministic_uuids => false,
         :integrate_targets => false

Parameters:

  • installation_method (String)

    the name of the installation strategy.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    the installation options.

  end

  set_hash_value('installation_method', 'name' => installation_method, 'options' => options)
end
Deprecated.

linking a single target with multiple Xcode targets is no longer supported. Use an #abstract_target and target inheritance instead.

link_with is deprecated in 1.0 in favour of abstract_target and target inheritance instead.

  raise Informative, 'The specification of `link_with` in the Podfile ' \
    'is now unsupported, please use target blocks instead.'
end

#platform(name, target = nil) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies the platform for which a static library should be built.

CocoaPods provides a default deployment target if one is not specified. The current default values are 4.3 for iOS, 10.6 for OS X, 9.0 for tvOS and 2.0 for watchOS.

If the deployment target requires it (iOS < 4.3), armv6 architecture will be added to ARCHS.

Examples:

Specifying the platform


platform :ios, '4.0'
platform :ios

Parameters:

  • name (Symbol)

    the name of platform, can be either :osx for OS X, :ios for iOS, :tvos for tvOS, or :watchos for watchOS.

  • target (String, Version) (defaults to: nil)

    The optional deployment. If not provided a default value according to the platform name will be assigned.

def platform(name, target = nil)
  # Support for deprecated options parameter
  target = target[:deployment_target] if target.is_a?(Hash)
  current_target_definition.set_platform!(name, target)
end

#plugin(name, options = {}) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies the plugins that should be used during installation.


Use this method to specify a plugin that should be used during installation, along with the options that should be passed to the plugin when it is invoked.

Examples:

Specifying to use the slather and cocoapods-keys plugins.


plugin 'cocoapods-keys', :keyring => 'Eidolon'
plugin 'slather'

Parameters:

  • name (String)

    The name of the plugin.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    The optional options that should be passed to the plugin when its hooks are invoked.

  (hash_plugins[name] ||= {}).merge!(options.deep_stringify_keys)
  set_hash_value('plugins', hash_plugins)
end

#pod(name = nil, *requirements) ⇒ void

Note:

This method allow a nil name and the raises to be more informative.

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies a dependency of the project.

A dependency requirement is defined by the name of the Pod and optionally a list of version requirements.

When starting out with a project it is likely that you will want to use the latest version of a Pod. If this is the case, simply omit the version requirements.

pod 'SSZipArchive'

Later on in the project you may want to freeze to a specific version of a Pod, in which case you can specify that version number.

pod 'Objection', '0.9'

Besides no version, or a specific one, it is also possible to use operators:

  • = 0.1 Version 0.1.
  • > 0.1 Any version higher than 0.1.
  • >= 0.1 Version 0.1 and any higher version.
  • < 0.1 Any version lower than 0.1.
  • <= 0.1 Version 0.1 and any lower version.
  • ~> 0.1.2 Version 0.1.2 and the versions up to 0.2, not including 0.2. This operator works based on the last component that you specify in your version requirement. The example is equal to >= 0.1.2 combined with < 0.2.0 and will always match the latest known version matching your requirements.
  • ~> 0 Version 0 and the versions up to 1, not including 1.
  • ~> 0.1.3-beta.0 Beta and release versions for 0.1.3, release versions up to 0.2 excluding 0.2. Components separated by a dash (-) will not be considered for the version requirement.

A list of version requirements can be specified for even more fine grained control.

For more information, regarding versioning policy, see:


Build configurations

By default dependencies are installed in all the build configurations of the target. For debug purposes or for other reasons, they can be only enabled on a list of build configurations.

pod 'PonyDebugger', :configurations => ['Debug', 'Beta']

Alternatively, you can specify to have it included on a single build configuration.

pod 'PonyDebugger', :configuration => 'Debug'

Note that transitive dependencies are included in all configurations and you have to manually specify build configurations for them as well in case this is not desired.


Modular Headers

If you would like to use modular headers per Pod you can use the following syntax:

pod 'SSZipArchive', :modular_headers => true

Additionally, when you use the use_modular_headers! attribute, you can exclude a particular Pod from modular headers using the following:

pod 'SSZipArchive', :modular_headers => false

Source

By default the sources specified at the global level are searched in the order they are specified for a dependency match. This behaviour can be altered for a specific dependency by specifying the source with the dependency:

pod 'PonyDebugger', :source => 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'

In this case only the specified source will be searched for the dependency and any global sources ignored.


Subspecs

When installing a Pod via its name, it will install all of the default subspecs defined in the podspec.

You may install a specific subspec using the following:

pod 'QueryKit/Attribute'

You may specify a collection of subspecs to be installed as follows:

pod 'QueryKit', :subspecs => ['Attribute', 'QuerySet']

Test Specs

Test specs can be optionally included via the :testspecs option. By default, none of a Pod's test specs are included.

You may specify a list of test spec names to install using the following:

pod 'AFNetworking', :testspecs => ['UnitTests', 'SomeOtherTests']

The values provided to :testspecs correspond to the name provided to the test_spec DSL attribute in a Podspec.


Dependencies can be obtained also from external sources.

Using the files from a local path.

If you would like to use develop a Pod in tandem with its client project you can use the path option.

pod 'AFNetworking', :path => '~/Documents/AFNetworking'

Using this option CocoaPods will assume the given folder to be the root of the Pod and will link the files directly from there in the Pods project. This means that your edits will persist to CocoaPods installations.

The referenced folder can be a checkout of your your favourite SCM or even a git submodule of the current repository.

Note that the podspec of the Pod file is expected to be in the folder.

From a podspec in the root of a library repository.

Sometimes you may want to use the bleeding edge version of a Pod. Or a specific revision. If this is the case, you can specify that with your pod declaration.

To use the master branch of the repository:

pod 'AFNetworking', :git => 'https://github.com/gowalla/AFNetworking.git'

To use a different branch of the repository:

pod 'AFNetworking', :git => 'https://github.com/gowalla/AFNetworking.git', :branch => 'dev'

To use a tag of the repository:

pod 'AFNetworking', :git => 'https://github.com/gowalla/AFNetworking.git', :tag => '0.7.0'

Or specify a commit:

pod 'AFNetworking', :git => 'https://github.com/gowalla/AFNetworking.git', :commit => '082f8319af'

It is important to note, though, that this means that the version will have to satisfy any other dependencies on the Pod by other Pods.

The podspec file is expected to be in the root of the repository, if this library does not have a podspec file in its repository yet, you will have to use one of the approaches outlined in the sections below.

From a podspec outside a spec repository, for a library without podspec.

If a podspec is available from another source outside of the library’s repository. Consider, for instance, a podspec available via HTTP:

pod 'JSONKit', :podspec => 'https://example.com/JSONKit.podspec'

#podspec(options = nil) ⇒ void

Note:

This method uses the dependencies declared for the platform of the target definition.

Note:

This method requires that the Podfile has a non nil value for Pod::Podfile#defined_in_file unless the path option is used.

This method returns an undefined value.

Use just the dependencies of a Pod defined in the given podspec file. If no arguments are passed the first podspec in the root of the Podfile is used. It is intended to be used by the project of a library. Note: this does not include the sources derived from the podspec just the CocoaPods infrastructure.

Examples:

podspec
podspec :name => 'QuickDialog'
podspec :path => '/Documents/PrettyKit/PrettyKit.podspec'

Parameters:

  • options (Hash {Symbol=>String}) (defaults to: nil)

    the path where to load the Specification. If not provided the first podspec in the directory of the Podfile is used.

Options Hash (options):

  • :path (String)

    the path of the podspec file

  • :name (String)

    the name of the podspec

#post_install(&block) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

This hook allows you to make any last changes to the generated Xcode project before it is written to disk, or any other tasks you might want to perform.

It receives the Pod::Installer as its only argument.

Examples:

Customising the build settings of all targets


post_install do |installer|
  installer.pods_project.targets.each do |target|
    target.build_configurations.each do |config|
      config.build_settings['GCC_ENABLE_OBJC_GC'] = 'supported'
    end
  end

  @post_install_callback = block
end

#post_integrate(&block) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

This hook allows you to make changes after the project is written to disk.

It receives the Pod::Installer as its only argument.

Examples:

Customising the build settings of all targets


post_integrate do |installer|
  # some change after project write to disk
end

Raises:

  @post_integrate_callback = block
end

#pre_install(&block) ⇒ Object

This hook allows you to make any changes to the Pods after they have been downloaded but before they are installed.

It receives the Pod::Installer as its only argument.

Examples:

Defining a pre-install hook in a Podfile.


pre_install do |installer|
  # Do something fancy!
end

#project(path, build_configurations = {}) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies the Xcode project that contains the target that the Pods library should be linked with.


If none of the target definitions specify an explicit project and there is only one project in the same directory as the Podfile then that project will be used.

It is possible also to specify whether the build settings of your custom build configurations should be modelled after the release or the debug presets. To do so you need to specify a hash where the name of each build configuration is associated to either :release or :debug.

Examples:

Specifying the user project


# This Target can be found in a Xcode project called `FastGPS`
target 'MyGPSApp' do
  project 'FastGPS'
  ...
end

# Same Podfile, multiple Xcodeprojects
target 'MyNotesApp' do
  project 'FastNotes'
  ...
end

Using custom build configurations


project 'TestProject', 'Mac App Store' => :release, 'Test' => :debug

Parameters:

  • path (String)

    the path of the project to link with

  • build_configurations (Hash{String => symbol}) (defaults to: {})

    a hash where the keys are the name of the build configurations in your Xcode project and the values are Symbols that specify if the configuration should be based on the :debug or :release configuration. If no explicit mapping is specified for a configuration in your project, it will default to :release.

  current_target_definition.build_configurations = build_configurations
end

#script_phase(options) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Adds a script phase to be integrated with this target. A script phase can be used to execute an arbitrary script that can use all Xcode environment variables during execution. A target may include multiple script phases which they will be added in the order they were declared. Deleting a script phase will effectively remove it from the target if it has been added previously.

Examples:

script_phase :name => 'HelloWorldScript', :script => 'echo "Hello World"'
script_phase :name => 'HelloWorldScript', :script => 'puts "Hello World"', :shell_path => '/usr/bin/ruby'

Parameters:

  • options (Hash)

    the options for this script phase.

Options Hash (options):

  • :name (String)

    the name of the script phase. This option is required.

  • :script (String)

    the body of the script to execute. This option is required.

  • :shell_path (String)

    the shell path to use for this script phase, for example /usr/bin/ruby to use Ruby for this phase.

  • :input_files (Array<String>)

    the input paths to use for this script phase. This is used by Xcode to determine whether to re-execute this script phase if the input paths have changed or not.

  • :output_files (Array<String>)

    the output paths to use for this script phase. This is used by Xcode to avoid re-executing this script phase if none of the output paths have changed.

  • :input_file_lists (Array<String>)

    the input file lists to use for this script phase. This is used by Xcode to determine whether to re-execute this script phase if the input paths have changed or not.

  • :output_file_lists (Array<String>)

    the output file lists to use for this script phase. This is used by Xcode to avoid re-executing this script phase if none of the output paths have changed.

  • :show_env_vars_in_log (Boolean)

    whether this script phase should output the environment variables during execution.

  • :execution_position (Symbol)

    specifies the position of which this script phase should be executed. The currently supported values are: :before_compile, :after_compile and :any which is the default.

  • :dependency_file (String)

    specifies the dependency file to use for this script phase.

#set_arc_compatibility_flag!void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies that the -fobjc-arc flag should be added to the OTHER_LD_FLAGS.


This is used as a workaround for a compiler bug with non-ARC projects (see #142). This was originally done automatically but libtool as of Xcode 4.3.2 no longer seems to support the -fobjc-arc flag. Therefore it now has to be enabled explicitly using this method.

Support for this method might be dropped in CocoaPods 1.0.

#source(source) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies the location of specs


Use this method to specify sources. The order of the sources is relevant. CocoaPods will use the highest version of a Pod of the first source which includes the Pod (regardless whether other sources have a higher version).

The official CocoaPods source is implicit. Once you specify another source, then it will need to be included.

Examples:

Specifying to first use the Artsy repository and then the CocoaPods Master Repository


source 'https://github.com/artsy/Specs.git'
source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'

Parameters:

  • source (String)

    The URL of a specs repository.

#supports_swift_versions(*requirements) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies the Swift version requirements this target definition supports.

Note These requirements are inherited from the parent, if specified and if none are specified at the root level then all versions are considered to be supported.

Examples:


target 'MyApp' do
  supports_swift_versions '>= 3.0', '< 4.0'
  pod 'AFNetworking', '~> 1.0'
end

supports_swift_versions '>= 3.0', '< 4.0'

target 'MyApp' do
  pod 'AFNetworking', '~> 1.0'
end

target 'ZipApp' do
  pod 'SSZipArchive'
end

Parameters:

  • requirements (String, Version, Array<String>, Array<Version>)

    The set of requirements this target supports.

end

#target(name, options = nil) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Defines a CocoaPods target and scopes dependencies defined within the given block. A target should correspond to an Xcode target. By default the target includes the dependencies defined outside of the block, unless instructed not to inherit! them.

Examples:

Defining a target


target 'ZipApp' do
  pod 'SSZipArchive'
end

Defining a test target accessing SSZipArchive pod from its parent


target 'ZipApp' do
  pod 'SSZipArchive'

  target 'ZipAppTests' do
    inherit! :search_paths
    pod 'Nimble'
  end
end

Defining a target applies Pods to multiple targets via its parent target


target 'ShowsApp' do
  pod 'ShowsKit'

  # Has its own copy of ShowsKit + ShowTVAuth
  target 'ShowsTV' do
    pod 'ShowTVAuth'
  end

  # Has its own copy of Specta + Expecta
  # and has access to ShowsKit via the app
  # that the test target is bundled into

  target 'ShowsTests' do
    inherit! :search_paths
    pod 'Specta'
    pod 'Expecta'
  end
end

Parameters:

  • name (Symbol, String)

    the name of the target.

#use_frameworks!(option = true) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Use frameworks instead of static libraries for Pods. When using frameworks, you may also specify the :linkage style to use, either :static or :dynamic.


This attribute is inherited by child target definitions.

Examples:


target 'MyApp' do
  use_frameworks!
  pod 'AFNetworking', '~> 1.0'
end

target 'MyApp' do
  use_frameworks! :linkage => :dynamic
  pod 'AFNetworking', '~> 1.0'
end

target 'ZipApp' do
  use_frameworks! :linkage => :static
  pod 'SSZipArchive'
end

Parameters:

  • option (Boolean, Hash) (defaults to: true)

    The option to use for configuring packaging and linkage style.

end

#use_modular_headers!Object

Use modular headers for all CocoaPods static libraries.


This attribute is inherited by child target definitions.

If you would like to use modular headers per Pod you can use the following syntax:

pod 'SSZipArchive', :modular_headers => true

Additionally, when you use the use_modular_headers! attribute, you can exclude a particular Pod from modular headers using the following:

pod 'SSZipArchive', :modular_headers => false

#workspace(path) ⇒ void

This method returns an undefined value.

Specifies the Xcode workspace that should contain all the projects.


If no explicit Xcode workspace is specified and only one project exists in the same directory as the Podfile, then the name of that project is used as the workspace’s name.

Examples:

Specifying a workspace


workspace 'MyWorkspace'

Parameters:

  • path (String)

    path of the workspace.
