Install CocoaPod Version

Recently, I’ve created react native app with this command:

npx react-native init myapp

and I got these error: “Installing required CocoaPods dependencies”

info Installing required CocoaPods dependencies
(node:8874) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Error: Failed to install CocoaPods dependencies for iOS project, which is required by this template.
Please try again manually: "cd ./myapp/ios && pod install".

and “React requires CocoaPods version >= 1.10.1”

`React` requires CocoaPods version `>= 1.10.1`, which is not satisfied by your current version, `1.10.0`

Here is my solution:

  1. Check cocoapods version
pod --version

2. Cocoapods gem list

gem list cocoapods
*** LOCAL GEMS ***

cocoapods (1.10.0)
cocoapods-core (1.10.0)
cocoapods-deintegrate (1.0.4)
cocoapods-downloader (1.4.0)
cocoapods-plugins (1.0.0)
cocoapods-search (1.0.0)
cocoapods-trunk (1.5.0)
cocoapods-try (1.2.0)

3. Install cocoapods version

gem install cocoapods -v 1.10.1
Fetching cocoapods-1.10.1.gem
Fetching cocoapods-core-1.10.1.gem
Successfully installed cocoapods-core-1.10.1

4. Cocoapods install specific version in your project.

pod _1.10.1_ install
// pod _{version}_ install

** Don’t forget to put underscore before and after version number

This does not change the default CocoaPods version used when runningĀ pod install

I hope this help.
