Tearing my hair out is a common occurrence whenever Apple has a hairy tingle up their bottoms and they decide to “update” Xcode with a more buggier version. It’s almost a feature at this point.
And since Xcode 11.2.0 is buggy as $hit (yes, my project has a TextView in a Storyboard), I had to remove it from my machine and revert back to a Xcode version I know that worked - Xcode 11.1, as 11.2 screwed up ALL THE THINGS.
Which meant that I have to reinstall Cocoapods and little did I know, also my own version of Ruby.
I got this beautiful error message trying to download Cocoapods:
% gem install cocoapods ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError) You don't have write permissions for the /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.6.0 directory.
I was shipped this default, but useless, version of Ruby from Apple:
% ruby -v ruby 2.6.3p62 (2019-04-16 revision 67580) [universal.x86_64-darwin19]
So I need to get my own Ruby in there by installing RVM, by using this command:
% \curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable
Restart Terminal and then run:
% rvm install 2.6.0
And then when I ran Cocoapods again without a hick-up, all with no errors:
% gem install cocoapods
To make sure I have the latest and greatest, I ran this command:
% gem which cocoapods /Users/yourUserName/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.6.0/gems/cocoapods-1.8.4/lib/cocoapods.rb
Double-checked to make sure my pods are up-to-date, and they were:
% pod repo
And that Homebrew doesn’t have an issue with anything:
% brew doctor Your system is ready to brew.
So that finally I can install my Realm back on to my project.
% pod install
There are times when I want to punch the Apple’s QA dudes right in the face…
