             Summary: Cordova on iOS should use an XCWorkspace, or at least support using
                 Key: CB-5921
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CLI, iOS
            Reporter: Graham Mueller

Hi Guys,

Not sure what to log this as. It's not so much a bug as an incompatibility with other frameworks.
Anyway, this is specifically an issue with the build process on iOS. Do with it what you will.

If you're familiar with the CocoaPods framework, you'll know that on initial install, it creates
an XCWorkspace file, and instructs you to exclusively use that afterwards. This is because
the CocoaPods library adds itself as a linked project that must be built, similar to Cordova/Phonegap.
The difference is that Cordova adds itself as a sub project, instead of a sibling project
(which is effectively the workspace goal, from my understanding, though I'm having a hard
time finding a good link to explain it better).

So, I would suggest that Cordova moves to this setup as well -- it should create the workspace
that has both the Cordova project and your app project.

Alternatively, if you don't want to go through and change that creation code, it would be
great if the CLI offered someway to specify what you want it to build. I found the actual
build script that's calling xcodebuild with a -project flag in it (this is where -workspace
would go). There is currently no way to override this, so there is currently no way at all
to support workspaces (and consequently no way to use CocoaPods).

Any thoughts or reasons not to do so?
