ios_dependency_parser plugin

Getting Started

This project is a fastlane plugin. To get started with fastlane-plugin-ios_dependency_parser, add it to your project by running:

fastlane add_plugin ios_dependency_parser

About ios_dependency_parser

This plugin analyzes a Cocoapods project dependencies by running pod outdated and parsing the results into an array of Pods available further on in the script via lane_context[SharedValues::POD_ANALYZER_RESULTS].

Pod object structure:

    pod_name: 'Alamofire',
    current_version: '4.8.2',
    update_version: '4.9.0',
    latest: '5.0.0-rc.2'

You could use it, for example, to alert you when a dependency used in the project has changed its major version number (e.g. using versionomy).


In this example we'll assume running pod outdated returns the following:

The following pod updates are available:
- Alamofire 4.8.2 -> 4.9.0 (latest version 5.0.0-rc.2)
- Crashlytics 3.13.1 -> 3.13.1 (latest version 3.14.0)
- GoogleMaps 3.2.0 -> 3.2.0 (latest version 3.4.0)
- RxSwift 4.5.0 -> 4.5.0 (latest version 5.0.0)

Our objective will be to retrieve Alamofire's current and latest version numbers with the alamofire lane in the following Fastfile.

Our Fastfile:

fastlane_version "2.131.0"

default_platform :ios

platform :ios do

  desc "Check Alamofire version"
  lane :alamofire do
    pods = lane_context[SharedValues::POD_ANALYZER_RESULTS]
    alamofire_pod = pods.detect { |pod| pod.pod_name == 'Alamofire' }
    puts("Alamofire current version: #{alamofire_pod.current_version}")
    puts("Alamofire latest version: #{alamofire_pod.latest}")
