## Cocoapod All The Things

So, am I the only one who manages to get sidetracked a lot when working on (personal) projects?

For example, I have a few generic components written for various projects. In the past I would just add a vendor folder to my project, put the component there and be done with it.

But I've become to like CocoaPods to much that I cannot get myself to use this simple approach anymore. The CocoaPods approach makes using external libs so clean that it feels dirty not to (unless there's no other option).
