CocoaPods vs Paket: What are the differences?

CocoaPods: A dependency manager for Swift and Objective-C Cocoa projects. CocoaPods 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; Paket: Dependency manager for .NET and mono projects. It is a dependency manager for .NET and mono projects, which is designed to work well with NuGet packages and also enables referencing files directly from Git repositories or any HTTP resource. It enables precise and predictable control over what packages the projects within your application reference.

CocoaPods and Paket can be primarily classified as "Dependency Management" tools.

CocoaPods and Paket are both open source tools. CocoaPods with 11.9K GitHub stars and 2.14K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Paket with 1.49K GitHub stars and 452 GitHub forks.

What are some alternatives to CocoaPods and Paket?
Gradle
Gradle is a build tool with a focus on build automation and support for multi-language development. If you are building, testing, publishing, and deploying software on any platform, Gradle offers a flexible model that can support the entire development lifecycle from compiling and packaging code to publishing web sites.
Cocoa Touch (iOS)
The Cocoa Touch layer contains key frameworks for building iOS apps. These frameworks define the appearance of your app. They also provide the basic app infrastructure and support for key technologies such as multitasking, touch-based input, push notifications, and many high-level system services.
Carthage
It exclusively uses dynamic frameworks instead of static libraries. It's a ruthlessly simple dependency manager for macOS and iOS, created by a group of developers from Github.
Apache Maven
Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system. Once you familiarize yourself with how one Maven project builds you automatically know how all Maven projects build saving you immense amounts of time when trying to navigate many projects.
Homebrew
Homebrew installs the stuff you need that Apple didn’t. Homebrew installs packages to their own directory and then symlinks their files into /usr/local.
