.podspec error - source_files` pattern did not match any file

I am integrating one of my github repos (full code here if it helps) with Cocopods, and I get this error when I run

pod spec lint
.

-> DropDownMenu (0.0.1)
- ERROR | [iOS] The `source_files` pattern did not match any file.


This is the relevant code of my
.podspec
which I believe is causing the problem.

Looking at examples here, here, and here, I have tried the following

s.source_files = 'Classes/*.{h,m}'
s.source_files = 'Classes/DropDownMenu.{h,m}'
s.source_files = 'Classes'
s.source_files = 'Classes/**/*.{h,m}'


Is my
s.source_files
field incorrect? Or did I do something wrong with the
.podspec
? What can I do to fix this?

My problem is similar to this question, however the solution does not work for me (my code is updated on Github).

Answer

The problem is that your podspec is referencing a commit that did not yet have the Classes folder,

i.e. this commit doesn't have a classes folder yet https://github.com/kevinrandrup/DropDownMenu/tree/09c9b3d515b78550557eabc0a8542f9f6f2623cf

You can fix this issue by referencing the latest commit, i.e. changing your podspec source to:

s.source       = { :git => "https://github.com/kevinrandrup/DropDownMenu.git", :commit => "0d6761feefccff1f7d8b7c7788ceb8e9cd1314ea" }
s.source_files  = 'Classes/*.{h,m}'
