Add .tbd frameworks to xcode projects via Projucer?

My project uses sqlite which I link in xcode with ‘Linked Frameworks and Libraries’, including libsqlite3.tbd. I’d like to configure this framework via Projucer so that I don’t have to manually add it each time in xcode every time I save the project in Projucer.

There is an entry in Projucer for extra frameworks but if I enter ‘libsqlite3.tbd’ then it tries to add libsqlite3.tbd.framework instead of libsqlite3.tbd.


Is it possible to configure .tbd frameworks in Projucer?


I think .tdb files are just text-based wrappers around .dylibs, which should be located in /usr/lib. Can you try adding sqlite3 to the “External libraries to link” field in the Xcode exporter and adding /usr/lib to the “Extra library search paths” field of your build configurations?

Thanks for the suggestion but it doesn’t seem to work, I get a linker error:

ld: library not found for -llibcurl

Thats after setting ‘Extra library search paths’ and adding ‘libcurl’ to ‘External libraries to link’

Remove the ‘lib’ so it’s just ‘curl’
