When I try to use the Firebase framework with tvOS (via cocoapods) I get the following error:
Target 'Pods-Portal TV' of project 'Pods' was rejected as an implicit dependency for 'Pods_Portal_TV.framework' because it doesn't contain platform 'appletvsimulator' in its SUPPORTED_PLATFORMS 'iphonesimulator, iphoneos'
Ok, so I got it working, albeit, a bit flaky.
This is a very quick guide as to how, at the time of writing.
First you need to setup CocoaPods to use unreleased features and get the master branch of cocoapods / cocoapods-core
Remember to set your xcode path to your beta version of xcode
sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/Xcode-Beta.app/Contents/Developer otherwise the spec won't build.
Then set your
source to your spec file, and set the platform to
platform :tvos, '9.0' in your Podfile, then
Your Project should then build and run, but with about 155 warnings:
ld: warning: URGENT: building for tvOS simulator, but linking in object file (/Users/..../..../.... /tvOS/Pods/Firebase/Firebase.framework/Firebase(FPendingPut.o)) built for iOS. Note: This will be an error in the future.
So obviously not a solid solution. Definately not a production solution. But hopefully Firebase will add support in the future. I spoke to Frank from the Firebase team who said that he will take it up at the next feature discussion to see if they want to include it. Here's to hoping they will :)
Also, I had to Comment out the
Accounts/Accounts.h import statement in the FAuthData.h for some reason? I don't know if anyone can elaborate on that
