we have discovered that if we run pod install using a podspec created by the cocoapods plugin, and the framework has not been built yet (which is the normal workflow when first cloning the repo), that cocoapods does not do the right thing. pod install must be run after the framework is created. has anyone else run into this?
i had to create the framework directory before calling pod install to workaround this issue

this is one of the annoying things I have to do every day. i do all my edits and changes to the common code in AS, then move over to Xcode. Build (which builds the framework), fail (because it cannot see it), exit Xcode, pod install/update, then open Xcode again. If this could be fixed, I would be sooo happy.

we only experienced an issue if the framework directory was not present when running
pod install
