The target ... overrides the `OTHER_LDFLAGS` build setting defined in `Pods/Pods.xcconfig'. #1125

Forgive me if this has already been covered somewhere, but I couldn't find an answer after some searching.

When I ran pod install I got this message for the [Debug] and [Debug - Release] targets of my project. Those targets do have several "Other Linker Flags" set under Build Settings.

It's unclear to me what I should do at this point. The following instructions leave me with more questions.

- Use the `$(inherited)` flag, or
- Remove the build settings from the target.
  • Where should I be using the $(inherited) flag? In my original target or in Pods.xcconfig?
  • Assuming Pods.xcconfig, should the $(inherited) flag replace what's already there or be added to it?

Thanks in advance.

The flat should be added to your target.


Apologies and thanks.


Nothing to apologize 😄. We just try to keep a bit of oder around here.

Btw, flat = flag.

The issue with this workaround is that we're forced to add it to each target. I don't want to do that as I want to keep the LD_FLAGS in my workspace settings and keep the targets' blank.
