Installing cocoapods gone wrong

Hi Guys! I just started to use Xcode, and I have seen some videos in Chris’s channel. I just started a new account at firebase and it requires cocoapods. So I searched a about it and tried to download it via Terminal in a macbook, but it did not work. When I type in “sudo gem install cocoapods” and then enter my password for the computer, the response I get it "cocoapods’s executable “pod” conflicts with /usr/local/bin/pod
Overwrite the executable? [yN] ", I don’t know what to do, plz help!

first you need t create a project on Firebase, iOS most likely. Then follow the isntructions on there.

They go in this order:

  1. Downlaod Google.plist
  2. Add to your project (make sure it is linked to the project)
  3. Close the project, then open Terminal, drag your project folder into the window
  4. Then type “pod init”
  5. Then type “open Pdfile”
  6. Then type “pod install” and wait for all the installing to be done
  7. Once complete open the project file, but the one that says workspace!

And your are done!

Thank you Zeno, but I think you did not understand what the issue was. When I try to install cocoapods into the system, not for my xcode project, but my mac’s system, it does not work. I type in “sudo gem install cocoapods” and emedietly after I typed in my password I get an error that says "cocoapods’s executable “pod” conflicts with /usr/local/bin/pod
Overwrite the executable? [yN] "

are you using zsh mode in the terminal?

when you open your terminal it should say this

" The default interactive shell is now zsh.
To update your account to use zsh, please run chsh -s /bin/zsh.

if you read something like this then dont move over to zsh just ignore it

you can also try overwriting your cocoapods it should be fine

how do I overwrite my cocoapods? Im sorry Im really new to this…

once it asks for

just type in “y” and press enter
