Carthage Package Manager

Carthage is intended to be the simplest way to add frameworks to your Cocoa application.

#What is Carthage?

Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager for macOS and iOS platforms, designed to simplify the process of managing third-party libraries in Xcode projects. It allows developers to declare project dependencies in a Cartfile, which specifies the library name, version, and source. Carthage then fetches and builds the libraries, generates Xcode project files, and links the libraries to the project.

Most recognizable Carthage features include:

  • Decentralized dependency management
  • Integration with Git, GitHub, and other sources
  • Automatic library fetching and building
  • Version locking and updating
  • Support for multiple platforms and architectures
  • Integration with Xcode project files

#Carthage Use-Cases

Some of the Carthage use-cases are:

  • Management of third-party libraries in macOS and iOS projects
  • Provisioning and deployment of macOS and iOS applications
  • Collaboration and sharing of project dependencies
  • Customizable library sources and repositories
  • Development and testing of macOS and iOS projects
