We recently updated our project from CocoaPods
1.0.1 and have noticed a significant increase in build times. Previously, the
pod install phase took ~1 minute and since upgrading it is now taking ~7-8 minutes per build. I’m aware of the changes that the CocoaPods team made in
1.0.0 for no longer performing shallow fetches, etc, but there needs to be something done to speed this up. I saw in another post a suggestion that containers come preloaded with the CocoaPods master repo downloaded, which would certainly help. Are there any plans to help mitigate this issue on CircleCI’s end? Does anyone have any good workarounds that they have implemented to counter this problem in the meantime?
