Since cocoapods 1.8 the pod tool uses the CDN instead of git to resolve and download pods. Locally I’ve already seen that this is a lot faster than it was in the past (no surprise there).
On CircleCI I am currently still using the small helper script that loads a clone of the repo from S3 (see here ). That had also been a great help in the past, but I am wondering whether it’s still useful now? Unpacking that repo takes quite a lot of time, so perhaps skipping it and relying on the CDN alone is better?
I’m pretty sure that’s the case, but wanted to know either some sort of official statement/advice or experience reports by others.
Thanks in advance!
