CocoaPods

You can use CocoaPods to install CouchbaseLite for Objective-C API or CouchbaseLiteSwift for Swift API by adding it in your Podfile:

Objective-C

Community Edition
target '<your target name>' do
  use_frameworks!
  pod 'CouchbaseLite'
end
Enterprise Edition
target '<your target name>' do
  use_frameworks!
  pod 'CouchbaseLite-Enterprise'
end

Swift

Community Edition
target '<your target name>' do
  use_frameworks!
  pod 'CouchbaseLite-Swift'
end
Enterprise Edition
target '<your target name>' do
  use_frameworks!
  pod 'CouchbaseLite-Swift-Enterprise'
end

Carthage

You can use Carthage to install CouchbaseLite by adding it in your Cartfile:

Community Edition
binary "https://packages.couchbase.com/releases/couchbase-lite-ios/carthage/CouchbaseLite-Community.json"
Enterprise Edition
binary "https://packages.couchbase.com/releases/couchbase-lite-ios/carthage/CouchbaseLite-Enterprise.json"

When running carthage update or build, Carthage will build both CouchbaseLite and CouchbaseLiteSwift framework.

How to build the framework files.

  1. Clone the repo and update submodules
$ git clone https://github.com/couchbase/couchbase-lite-ios.git
$ cd couchbase-lite-ios
$ git submodule update --init --recursive
  1. If not already installed, install doxygen, brew install doxygen

  2. Run ./Scripts/build_framework.sh to build a platform framework which could be either an Objective-C or a Swift framework. The supported platforms include iOS, tvOS, and macOS.

$ ./Scripts/build_framework.sh -s "CBL ObjC" -p iOS -o output    // For building the ObjC framework for iOS
$ ./Scripts/build_framework.sh -s "CBL Swift" -p iOS -o output   // For building the Swift framework for iOS
