Ios – How to correctly create carthage cartfile


I'm looking into cartfile. Can't wait to "simply create a cartfile" like all the instructions say to do.

Only… how do you "simply" create a Cartfile?

I've created a plain text document, named it cartfile and copied some dependencies in it.

From the command line, navigate to your project directory.

touch Cartfile
