Unable to install cdbindgen



iMac running Big Sur (Mac OS X 11.2.1) and Xcode 12.4

I’m trying to follow the instructions. The issue occurs when I try to install cdbindgen:

bash-3.2$ cargo install cdbindgen
    Updating crates.io index
error: could not find `cdbindgen` in registry `https://github.com/rust-lang/crates.io-index` with version `*`

I had no issues installing rustup or * cargo install cargo-make. I’m not sure how to proceed. Any ideas? Thanks!


It’s misspelled, see https://crates.io/crates/cbindgen

Feel free to keep track of any issues you find along the way and make a PR

Hi @balboah, yep, that was it. I’ve been able to install cbindgen. Now, the new problem is with the Cocoapods step (which seems to be misspelled as well):

* in ios dir: pods install

It should be pod install, not pods. The error I get is:

[!] No Podfile found in the project directory.

Sure enough, no podfile exists in the ios directory that I can see. Any ideas? I’ll sure write my own Mac OS X revised installation guide once I get everything working. Thanks!

AFAIR we dropped the pods. You should be fine skipping this step.

Hello @Karol! Thank you. I’m collecting all the info along the way so that I can write a proper iOS installation guide. I still have other issues that are coming up as I go along. Should I continue the conversation on this thread, or would you guys prefer that I start a new one instead? (e.g. “iOS Installation Issues”) Thanks again!

You may start a new one.
