Carthage enhances Appcircle's CI/CD pipelines with a decentralized dependency manager for iOS, offering developers improved control and efficiency in app development.

Key Benefits

Flexible Dependency Management: Offers developers greater control over which dependencies are built and included, allowing for a more streamlined and efficient integration process.

Minimal Configuration: Carthage requires minimal setup compared to other dependency managers, making it easier to manage dependencies without extensive configuration files, facilitating a cleaner project structure.

Binary Framework Support: Speeds up the build process by allowing the use of pre-compiled frameworks, significantly reducing build times and improving efficiency in mobile app build pipelines.

Selective Integration: Enables selective integration of dependencies, allowing developers to build only the frameworks they need, further enhancing build times and reducing complexity.

Points to Consider

Build Time for Large Dependencies: While binary frameworks can speed up build times, building large dependencies from source can still be time-consuming. Optimizing your Cartfile and utilizing binary frameworks when possible is recommended.

Dependency Updates: Regularly check for updates and add them to your dependencies and Carthage itself to leverage improvements and security patches.
