Do you use Carthage? Are you feel tired of adding special script and the paths to frameworks (point 4, 5 and 6 in Getting Started guide) manually? Me too. Carting does it for you. It scans Carthage folder and linked frameworks, gets framework names and updates the script.

Carting usage


Run carting update in project folder. That's all.

By default Carting searches a script named Carthage, but you can set a name of your script via command line arguments:

$ carting update -s MyBestScript

If there is no script with the name, Carting will add a new one.

Since Xcode 10 Run Script build phases support declaring input and output files in a .xcfilelist file. This file should contain a newline-separated list of the file paths for the inputs or outputs. Carting uses it by default. If you need to work with your projects in old Xcode versions, use -f file option.

🚨Note: be sure to have no uncommitted changes in project file to prevent project parsing errors 😱.
