    • UIKit
    • Foundation
    • CoreImage
    • CoreGraphics
    • QuartzCore
    • Accelerate
    • AudioToolbox (if you want to use BFSystemSound class)

  • Write:

    platform :ios, '7.0'
    xcodeproj 'Project.xcodeproj'
    
    pod 'BFKit'
    
  • Change "Project" with your real project name

  • Open Terminal, go to project directory and type: pod install

  • Import the Framework with #import <BFKit/BFKit.h>

  • Enjoy!

iOS 8 or later compatible

Manual

Carthage

Pro version
  • github "FabrizioBrancati/BFKit"
  • Import the Framework with import BFKit
  • Enjoy!
Newbie version
  • Create a Cartfile in your project directory
  • Write:

    github "FabrizioBrancati/BFKit"
    
  • Open Terminal, go to project directory and type: carthage update

  • Include the created Framework in your project

  • Add Build Phase with the following contents:

    /usr/local/bin/carthage copy-frameworks
    

    Add the paths to the Queuer framework under Input Files
