Installing CocoaPods, third-party libraries

$ gem install cocoapods

We’re going to make a Podfile, which is where cocoapods will look each time it updates the project’s pods.

Now navigate to your project and type the following command on terminal.

$ touch Podfile

Hit enter and type the following command

$ atom Podfile

Now copy and paste all code blocks into Podfile and type the following command on terminal

$ pod install

If all goes well, the following handy command will open your project.

$ open combat.xcworkspace
