Problem with link iOS Firebase framework (from Cocoa pods)

  • Good day.
    Sorry for my bad english :-)
    I am trying to connect Firebase Messaging to a Qt project. I did everything according to the instructions:

    1. created a Qt project
    2. collected it
    3. XCode project file appeared in build folder
    4. in the build folder created a pod file via "pod init"
    5. in the pod file added the lines pod 'Firebase' pod 'Firebase / Core' pod 'FirebaseAnalytics' pod 'Firebase / Messaging'
    6. installed these modules with the "pod install" command.

    As a result, a Pods folder with Firebase modules was created in the build folder. But I cannot figure out how to properly connect headers and framework to a qt project.
    In the .pro file, I do this:

    ios {
        LIBS += -framework Foundation -framework CoreFoundation -framework UIKit -framework UserNotifications
        QMAKE_LFLAGS += -ObjC
        QMAKE_LFLAGS += -framework FirebaseCore
        LIBS += -F$$PWD/FirebaseIOS/FirebaseCore
        QMAKE_LFLAGS += -F$$PWD/FirebaseIOS/FirebaseMessaging
        LIBS += -framework FirebaseMessaging
        INCLUDEPATH += /Users/macuser/tests/testPushNotification/iosCompile/Pods/FirebaseCore/FirebaseCore/Sources/Public/FirebaseCore

    But on startup, the application crashes and dyld: dependent dylib '@ rpath / FirebaseCore.framework / FirebaseCore' not found for '/ private / var / containers / Bundle / Application / XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX / testPushNotification is displayed in the console. app / testPushNotification ', tried but didn't find:' / private / var / container
    s / Bundle / Application / XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX / / Frameworks / FirebaseCore.framework / FirebaseCore '' @ rpath / FirebaseCore.framework / FirebaseCore '' /Fystem/Library/Framework/Framework/Library FirebaseCore '

    Here I want to note the fact that when you create a project in XCode and build it (without Qt), .framework folders appear in the Debug-iphoneos folder. I copied these folders into my project.

    Please help me figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    IIRC (it's been a long time), you can use the QMAKE_BUNDLE_DATA variable to copy additional items to the app bundle.

    Hope it helps
