CocoaPods Pod Linkage plugin

This project is a CocoaPods plugin that allows to set a :linkage option for a specific pod.

CocoaPods doesn't support mixing static and dynamic pods in the same target, you can use use_frameworks! :linkage => :static or use_frameworks! :linkage => :dynamic to configure the linking style of all pods in a target. This plugin adds support for the :linkage option for single pods allowing you to mix static and dynamic linking in the same target.

Getting started

Install the plugin by adding to your Gemfile

gem "cocoapods-pod-linkage"


Add to your Podfile

plugin 'cocoapods-pod-linkage'

Then, use the :linkage option to change the linking style of that pod

target :MyTarget do
  use_frameworks! :linkage => :static

  pod 'MyStaticPod', '1.2.3'
  pod 'MyDynamicPod', '1.2.3', :linkage => :dynamic

Run tests for this plugin

To run the tests, use

rake tests
