4. Common Questions #1
1. Installing via CocoaPods
CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:
$ gem install cocoapods
CocoaPods 1.1.0+ is required to build JTApplecalendar.
To integrate JTAppleCalendar into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your
source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git' platform :ios, '10.0' use_frameworks! target '<Your Target Name>' do pod 'JTAppleCalendar', '~> 7.0' end
Then, run the following command:
$ pod install
New to Cocoapods? Did the steps above fail? Then read on.
If you're new to CocoaPods, simply search how to integrate Cocoapods into your project. Trust me that 5-7 minutes of research will bring you much benefit. CocoaPods one of the top dependency manager for integrating 3rd party frameworks into your project. But in a nut-shell, here is how I did my installation with a sample project called test
- Install Cocoapods.
- Create a new xcode project. Save the name as: test
- Go to your console in the directory location where your project is located.
- Type and run the command: pod init
- This will create a file called: Podfile in that same location.
- Edit that Podfile so that it looks like the following:
# Uncomment the next line to define a global platform for your project # platform :ios, '9.0' target 'test' do use_frameworks! pod 'JTAppleCalendar', '~> 7.0' end
Save, and head back to terminal and run: pod install. If all Went well, installation should be complete. Close the XCodeproject, and instead reopen it using the workspace file which generated when installation was completed. Done.
2. Installing via Carthage
Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.
You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:
$ brew update $ brew install carthage
To integrate JTAppleCalendar into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your
github "patchthecode/JTAppleCalendar" ~> 7.0
carthage update to build the framework and drag the built
JTApplecalendar.framework into your Xcode project.
3. Installing manually
Simply drag the source files into your project.
