Much more information can be found at https://firebase.google.com.
Firebase distributes several iOS specific APIs and SDKs via CocoaPods.
You can install the CocoaPods tool on OS X by running the following command from
the terminal. Detailed information is available in the Getting Started
$ sudo gem install cocoapods
You can try any of the SDKs with
pod try. Run the following command and select
the SDK you are interested in when prompted:
$ pod try Firebase
Note that some SDKs may require credentials. More information is available in
the SDK-specific documentation at https://firebase.google.com/docs/.
CocoaPods is used to install and manage dependencies in existing Xcode projects.
Create an Xcode project, and save it to your local machine.
Create a file named
Podfile in your project directory. This file defines
your project's dependencies, and is commonly referred to as a Podspec.
Podfile, and add your dependencies. A simple Podspec is shown here:
platform :ios, '7.0' pod 'Firebase'
Save the file.
Open a terminal and
cd to the directory containing the Podfile.
$ cd <path-to-project>/project/
pod install command. This will install the SDKs specified in the
Podspec, along with any dependencies they may have.
$ pod install
Open your app's
.xcworkspace file to launch Xcode.
Use this file for all development on your app.
You can also install other Firebase SDKs by adding the subspecs in the
pod 'Firebase/AdMob' pod 'Firebase/Analytics' pod 'Firebase/Auth' pod 'Firebase/Crash' pod 'Firebase/Database' pod 'Firebase/DynamicLinks' pod 'Firebase/Invites' pod 'Firebase/Messaging' pod 'Firebase/Performance' pod 'Firebase/RemoteConfig' pod 'Firebase/Storage'
