A new CocoaPods plugin called playgrounds allows you to quickly create a playground for a specific pod library. This helps to quickly get a feel for it before you drag another dependency in your iOS project.
First we need to install the plugin:
% gem install cocoapods-playgrounds Fetching: cocoapods-playgrounds-0.0.2.gem (100%) Successfully installed cocoapods-playgrounds-0.0.2 # make sure you've got a fresh pod version % pod --version 0.39.0
Now let's try Scale, a unit conversion library for swift. First, we create our pod-specific playground:
% pod playgrounds Scale
This should open ScalePlayground in XCode. After building the
Scale scheme, we can go ahead and open
Scale/Scale.playground to try this shiny library!
//: Please build the scheme 'ScalePlayground' first import XCPlayground XCPlaygroundPage.currentPage.needsIndefiniteExecution = true import Scale let length = 5.kilometer + 7.meter // 5007 meter let weight = 10.0.kilogram * 5.gram // 50000 gram
