Please use the official cocoapods support which is included in the regular kotlin multiplatform gradle plugin.


A Gradle plugin which handles creating a podspec for a local Kotlin/Native project. The generated podspec properly integrates your project with cocoapods, and release/debug fat binaries will be created and linked when you compile the xcode project. Using this plugin means you do not need to manually set up xcode or the

task as described in the documentation.


buildscript {
  repositories {
  dependencies {
    classpath 'com.alecstrong:cocoapods-gradle-plugin:0.3.3'

// Cocoapods plugin is only applicable for multiplatform projects with Kotlin/Native apply plugin: 'org.jetbrains.kotlin.multiplatform' apply plugin: 'com.alecstrong.cocoapods'

// Optional configuration of plugin. cocoapods { version = "1.0.0-LOCAL" // Defaults to "1.0.0-LOCAL" homepage = www.mywebsite.com // Default to empty deploymentTarget = "10.0" // Defaults to "10.0" authors = "Ben Asher" // Defaults to empty license = "..." // Defaults to empty summary = "..." // Defaults to empty daemon = true // Defaults to false wrapperExecutableName = "gradlew" // Defaults to "gradlew" wrapperAdditionalArgs = "..." // Defaults to empty }

From this the plugin will generate a task

to create a
file in that directory for the kotlin native project.
> Code/Kotlin/gradlew -p Code/Kotlin :common:generatePodspec

The above command is assuming a module structure where

is the root of your gradle project, and
is a Kotlin Multiplatform module with iOS targets.

Then in your

you can reference the module:
target 'MyProject' do
  pod 'common', :path => 'Code/Kotlin/common'

And that's it! From your iOS project you will be able to

import common

Custom Target

The plugin also includes a custom target which sets up the source sets:

kotlin {

sourceSets { iosMain { ... } iosTest { ... } } }

Doing this will also generate a

task for running tests against this target.

Custom Architectures

By default this packages a fat binary with x64, arm64, and arm32 architectures inside. To override this behavior pass a list of presets into the

kotlin {
  targetForCocoapods([presets.iosArm64, presets.iosX64], 'ios')

Its also possible to use the full 1.3.20 DSL to customize the targets:

kotlin {
  targetForCocoapods([presets.iosArm64, presets.iosX64], 'ios') {
    compilations.main.extraOpts '-module-name', 'CP'
