Croc is a library for parsing emojis on iOS. It provides a simple and lightweight interface for detecting, generating, categorizing and managing emoji characters, making emoji-powered features an easy task for developers.

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:
$ gem install cocoapods
CocoaPods 1.1+ is required to build Croc
To integrate Croc into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your
source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git' platform :ios, '10.0' use_frameworks! target '<Your Target Name>' do pod 'Croc' end
Then, run the following command:
$ pod install
Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.
You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:
$ brew update $ brew install carthage
To integrate Croc into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your
carthage update to build the framework and drag the built
Croc.framework into your Xcode project.
Swift Package Manager
The Swift Package Manager is a tool for automating the distribution of Swift code and is integrated into the
swift compiler. It is in early development, but Croc does support its use on supported platforms.
Once you have your Swift package set up, adding Croc as a dependency is as easy as adding it to the
dependencies value of your
dependencies: [ .Package(url: "https://github.com/JKalash/Croc.git", majorVersion: 0) ]
dependencies: [ .package(url: "https://github.com/JKalash/Croc.git", from: "0.0.0") ]
If you prefer not to use any of the aforementioned dependency managers, you can integrate Croc into your project manually.
- Open up Terminal,
cdinto your top-level project directory, and run the following command
ifyour project is not initialized as a git repository:
$ git init
- Add Croc as a git submodule by running the following command:
$ git submodule add https://github.com/JKalash/Croc.git
Open the new
Crocfolder, and drag the
Croc.xcodeprojinto the Project Navigator of your application’s Xcode project.
It should appear nested underneath your application’s blue project icon. Whether it is above or below all the other Xcode groups does not matter.
Croc.xcodeprojin the Project Navigator and verify the deployment target matches that of your application target.
Next, select your application project in the Project Navigator (blue project icon) to navigate to the target configuration window and select the application target under the
Targetsheading in the sidebar.
In the tab bar at the top of that window, open the
Click on the

You can verify which one you selected by inspecting the build log for your project. The build target for

And that’s it!
Croc.frameworkis automagically added as a target dependency, linked framework and embedded framework in a copy files build phase which is all you need to build on the simulator and a device.
