Supported datasources

This manager supports extracting the following datasources: git-tags, github-tags, gitlab-tags, pod.

Default config

  "fileMatch": [
  "versioning": "ruby"

Additional Information

The cocoapods manager supports extracting both "pod" type references as well as dependencies on GitHub repositories that use versioned tags.

Whenever a Podfile is updated, Renovate will also update any associated Podfile.lock file. This is done using the cocoapods gem, which runs within the Ruby runtime.
