Objective Sharpie 3.1

Objective Sharpie 3.1 is a minor update that improves CocoaPods support.

This release features better support for CocoaPods. Notably, Objective Sharpie now works with CoocaPods 1.0 and binding results should be a little more reliable now as we first build a native framework from the CocoaPod before binding.

Additionally, all CocoaPod bindings will be produced in a Binding directory, into which we also now copy the native .framework directory to make it easier to integrate with a Xamarin.Mac or Xamarin.iOS binding project.


$ sharpie pod init macosx HockeySDK-Mac
$ sharpie pod bind

Will produce the following output in the Binding directory (relative to your working directory or the -d option passed to sharpie pod):

├── HockeySDK.framework/
│   └── ...
├── HockeySDK_ApiDefinitions.cs
└── HockeySDK_StructsAndEnums.cs
