Podfile generator. #1971

Hi guys!

After yesterday's CocoaPods bug bash I came up with an interesting idea.
If you take a look at the service Ninite it basically creates an installer for different applications.
So what if we would have something like this for creating a new Podfile?

I have created a really, really simple example, so you can get the idea of what I mean.
So in the current demo version you can select one or many of the popular libraries and with the click on the Download button it will generate and download Podfile.

I was thinking of expanding functionality, ideas:
1.) Use of CocoaPods search - is there an API?
2.) Specifying which version to use - '~> 1.4'
3.) User can specify the platform - platform :ios, '7.0'
4.) ect.

What do you think?

Thanks for your response & happy hacking!

You don't need our permission to build this, just do it!

Search API docs:

FWIW, I think this should be an independent app, not on too
