Full Changelog: 1.20.2...1.20.3


Working on a project with a huge amount of pods I had some troubles:
- Slow and unnecessary indexing of pods targets, which implementation I rarely try to edit;
- Redundant rebuild time, probably as a result of problems CocoaPods hooks or Xcode build system;
- Freezing UI during navigation.

You can read 📖 full story on my blog.


🏈 Rugby is CLI tool that was developed to solve the above problems:
+ Cache all pods dependencies and remove their targets from the Pods project;
+ Rebuild only changed pods;
+ Remove unnecessary sources from a project and reduce project size;
+ Drop any unneeded targets with sources and resources by RegEx.

What makes it different?
