@memsharded I got further on this, it now builds for me, however, it fails to run:

dyld: Library not loaded: @rpath/hello.framework/Versions/A/hello
  Referenced from: /private/var/folders/vq/v4_w2g4j5k1170y70pgfktzr0000gn/T/tmpns2pz_0mconans/path with spaces/test_package/build/f4c7a70248efcdb8d65e75e42ba42fadfc285e1b/bin/timer
  Reason: image not found
ERROR: mylibrary/1.0 (test package): Error in test() method, line 14"bin/timer", run_environment=True)
	ConanException: Error -6 while executing DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH="" DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH="" bin/timer

this is very suspicious, as testing with real project (SFML) passes.
right now I fail to understand why run_environment doesn't see framework_paths?
it turns our that dumping such values results in incorrect things:

    def test(self):
          "%s" % self.deps_cpp_info["mylibrary"].frameworks)
          "%s" % self.deps_cpp_info["mylibrary"].framework_paths)
          "%s" % self.deps_cpp_info["mylibrary"].frameworkdirs)
mylibrary/1.0 (test package): Running test()
mylibrary/1.0 (test package): ['hello']
mylibrary/1.0 (test package): []
mylibrary/1.0 (test package): ['Frameworks']

somehow, framework_paths/frameworkdirs are lost in RunEnvironment generator... but values were passed correctly to the CMake generator, that puzzles me a lot.

okay, it turns out problem was in txt generator (surprisingly). it misused framework_paths vs framework_dirs.

This looks good, many thanks!

Could you please extend the test to use the cmake_find_package_multi generator? That is using a similar conan_find_apple_framework, doesn't seem affected, but would be better to have it covered.

The same test, with the same framework, but just modifying the consumer to use find_package() instead would be nice.

Many thanks!

NOTE: this is not a regression, it wasn't working as expected from the inception.

hey there, I have tried latest build Conan version 1.31.1
and same issue still occurs.

I made a swift dynamic framework for our own testing purpose and installed to the test project.

The test project can import the framework and compile successfuly, but run instantly into crashes:

dyld: Library not loaded: @rpath/swiftTestFramework.framework/swiftTestFramework
Referenced from: /private/var/containers/Bundle/Application/7589D3D1-8813-4195-8FD6-6CA041AB6439/
Reason: image not found
dyld: launch, loading dependent libraries

Can you point me the right place to this issue? Thanks
