Publishing Swift Cocoapods

In the past few hours I’ve been battling to get Locksmith, my Swift keychain library, set up as a Cocoapod. No matter what I tried I was hitting “unknown option character ‘X’ in: -Xlinker” and pod lib lint errors.

Here’s how I got it working:

  1. sudo gem uninstall cocoapods, and if you have multiple versions, uninstall all of them.
  2. sudo gem install cocoapods --pre

Simple, right? Turns out the first step is really important; I had five different versions of Cocoapods installed, and it wasn’t using the latest one.
