Travis CLI installation issue for MacOS

I came across one problem while integrating travis CI with  GitHub repository. For this I want to set environment level  AWS environment profile  to avoid pushing secrete key and access key into code as best practices for security. Then I landed into a problem while doing installation on MacOS.

I am trying to install gem install travis to use travis-cli as per reference but getting below error.

Tried solution mentioned here but no luck then I posted this question over StackOverflow :

This are steps I have tried :

brew reinstall libffi
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/opt/libffi/lib"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/opt/libffi/lib/pkgconfig"
gem install travis
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

While doing above steps got below error 👇🏻

package configuration for libffi is not found "xcrun clang -o conftest

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here I got an answer to solve this and thanks to the StackOverflow answer.

First install cocoapods gem.

What CocoaPods does exactly ?  
In short CocoaPods manages library dependencies for your Xcode projects.

sudo gem install -n /usr/local/bin cocoapods -v 1.8.4
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Latest CocoaPods 1.10.0 won't work.


if you want to instal CocoaPods 1.10.0 + you can use HomeBrew and then enter the below in command line

brew install cocoapods
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Thanks for reading this. Hope this blog will help you to solve your travis-cli installation issue.
