How to package Apple Frameworks

To package an Apple framework:

  • Copy/create a framework folder XXX.framework (XXX being the name of your framework), to your package folder, where you should put all the subdirectories (Headers, Modules, etc).

def package(self):
    # If you have the framework folder built in your build_folder:
    self.copy("XXX.framework/*", symlinks=True)
    # Or build the destination folder:
    self.copy("*.h", dst="XXX.framework/Headers")
    # ...
  • Declare the framework in the cpp_info object.

def package_info(self):

    self.cpp_info.exelinkflags.append("-framework XXX")
    self.cpp_info.sharedlinkflags = self.cpp_info.exelinkflags
