Even though you haven't made any changes to the Pods in your project, Xcode can still re-compile you libraries, even when it should not need to do this. For a few small libraries this can be a small irritant, in a large project this can be time-consuming and annoying.
One solution for this is to not give Xcode the chance to re-compile code. CocoaPods Binary will pre-compile your Pods during
pod install, and then add the binary assets (e.g.
.framework files) into the generated Xcode projects instead of the source code.
CocoaPods Binary works by adding a pre-install phase which:
- Pulls out pods which you specify to be pre-compiled
- Compiles those pods
- Switches the Podspecs which used to refer to source code, to refer to the new compiled frameworks
To specify which Pods you want to convert, edit your
Podfile by appending
:binary => true to your
