Framework not found #19

I added a framework i have created following the guide, but i get an error Framework not found.

I tried adding the framework both by dragging it into the project and by linking it through build phases. I also tried adding the serenity framework to my project but received the same error.

The only project that worked was the third party project with the framework already added.

the log I receive is

Ld build/Debug-iphonesimulator/trackerTrial.app/trackerTrial normal i386

ld: framework not found Serenity

any help will be appreciated, thanks.

I am facing the same issue. Any pointers on how this can be fixed?


I don't see the framework created here as outlined in Step 4: Build and Verify: ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData//Build/Products/Debug-iphonesimulator/

In my case i needed to build the aggregate target, but was building only the projects target. to change this go to the product menu > edit scheme and change the scheme to the framework target.

hope this helps,

I am building the aggregate target (Framework) but it doesn't seem to generate Serenity.framework. I can see in the logs that the Build Framework script is running and returns success but the file doesn't get generated.


This worked finally. The scheme had to be set to release on the ios device.

Can be closed.
