CocoaPods vs Ninject: What are the differences?
What is CocoaPods? A dependency manager for Swift and Objective-C Cocoa projects. It supports almost every way you would want to get source code, git, svn, bzr, http and hg. You can use your own private code repository to manage your own dependencies. It only requires a git repo, no server necessary.
What is Ninject? The ninja of .net dependency injectors. It is a lightning-fast, ultra-lightweight dependency injector for .NET applications. It helps you split your application into a collection of loosely-coupled, highly-cohesive pieces, and then glue them back together in a flexible manner. By using it to support your software's architecture, your code will become easier to write, reuse, test, and modify.
CocoaPods and Ninject can be categorized as "Dependency Management" tools.
Some of the features offered by CocoaPods are:
- Incremental Installation
- Support Multiple Swift Versions & Pod Projects
- Define App Specs for Example Apps
On the other hand, Ninject provides the following key features:
CocoaPods and Ninject are both open source tools. It seems that CocoaPods with 11.9K GitHub stars and 2.14K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Ninject with 2.25K GitHub stars and 522 GitHub forks.
