Installation


1. Installing via CocoaPods

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:

$ gem install cocoapods

CocoaPods 1.1.0+ is required to build JTApplecalendar.

To integrate JTAppleCalendar into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'
platform :ios, '10.0'
use_frameworks!

target '<Your Target Name>' do
    pod 'JTAppleCalendar', '~> 6.0'
end

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

Completed!

New to cocoapods? Did the steps above fail? Then read on.

If youre new to CocoaPods, simply do search on how to integrate cocoapods into your project. Trust me that 5-7 minuites of research will bring you much benefit. CocoaPods one of the top dependency manager for integrating 3rd party frameworks into your project. But in a nut-shell, here is how I did my installation with a sample project called test

  1. Install cocoapods.
  2. Create a new xcode project. Save the name as: test
  3. Go to your console in the directory location where your project is located.
  4. Type and run the command: pod init
  5. This will create a file called: Podfile in that same location.
  6. Edit that Podfile so that it looks like the following:
# Uncomment the next line to define a global platform for your project
# platform :ios, '9.0'

target 'test' do
  use_frameworks!
  pod 'JTAppleCalendar', '~> 6.0'
end

Save, and head back to terminal and run: pod install. If all Went well, installation should be complete. Close the XCodeproject, and instead reopen it using the workspace file which generated when installation was completed. Done.

2. Installing via Carthage

Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate JTAppleCalendar into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "patchthecode/JTAppleCalendar" ~> 6.0

Run carthage update to build the framework and drag the built JTApplecalendar.framework into your Xcode project.

3. Installing manually

Simply drag the source files into your project.
