CocoaPods Azure Universal Packages plugin

This project is a CocoaPods plugin that allows to dowload pods published as Universal Packages in Azure Artifacts feeds.

Getting started

Install the plugin by adding to your Gemfile

gem "cocoapods-azure-universal-packages"

Under the hood the plugin uses the Azure CLI to download the Universal Packages, you can install it running

brew update && brew install azure-cli

Finally, ensure that you are logged in using

az login

How it works

The plugin replaces the default CocoaPods HTTP downloader when a pod source URL points to a universal package and it uses the Azure CLI to perform the download.

Note: The plugin will install the Azure CLI DevOps extension automatically when running pod install or pod update for the first time.


Add to your Podfile

plugin 'cocoapods-azure-universal-packages', {
    :organization => '{{ORGANIZATION_URL}}'

replacing {{ORGANIZATION_URL}} with the base URL of your Azure Artifacts feed (for example:

Then, in your podspec set the pod's source to

# For project scoped feeds:
spec.source = { :http => '{{ORGANIZATION_URL}}/{{PROJECT}}/_apis/packaging/feeds/{{FEED}}/upack/packages/{{PACKAGE}}/versions/{{VERSION}}' }

# For organization scoped feeds:
spec.source = { :http => '{{ORGANIZATION_URL}}/_apis/packaging/feeds/{{FEED}}/upack/packages/{{PACKAGE}}/versions/{{VERSION}}' }


  • {{ORGANIZATION_URL}} is the URL of your feed's organization
  • {{PROJECT}} is the name of your feed's project (you must specify this only if your feed is a project scoped feed)
  • {{PACKAGE}} is the name of your universal package
  • {{VERSION}} is the version of your universal package
