Restricting pods to certain architectures #1790

It would be nice to be able to restrict pods from certain architectures.

I ask because the pod OpenTok pod (e.g. OpenTokSDK-WebRTC) will not work on the simulator because it's not compatible with the architecture.

iirc, Xcode already allows you to limit build settings to archs, so this should be reasonably feasible. E.g. OTHER_LDFLAGS[arch=armv7,armv7s] = -l Pod-OpenTok.

is there any way to do this already with the post_install block?

@joelparsons closed with reason "this issue is not reproducible"

@joelparsons Are you sure? Because the OpenTokSDK README mentions: “You need to test OpenTok apps on an iOS device running iOS 5”. I.e. alluding to this pod not working on the simulator.

I made a sample project with the pod and included its classes and it built successfully. If it builds then even if it doesn't work the optional compilation setting is technically not necessary?

I should have got back earlier, last week I discovered I could compile the app using #if TARGET_IPHONE_SIMULATOR.

So I guess the problem is out of Cocoapods scope.

(I just stubbed out my VideoSession class, which is the only class that referenced the OpenTok library classes if anybody stumbles across this):

 #import "VideoSession.h"

 @implementation VideoSession

 #import "OpenTok.h"

 @interface VideoSession ()
 @property (strong, nonatomic) OTSession *session;
 @property (strong, nonatomic) OTPublisher *publisher;
 @property (strong, nonatomic) OTSubscriber *subscriber;
 @property (strong, nonatomic) UIView *publisherView;
 @property (strong, nonatomic) UIView *subscriberView;

 @implementation VideoSession
  // real implementation

@joelparsons Gotcha, sounds good indeed.

@Dan2552 Thanks for the update!
