Installing CocoaPods: no response
Trying to install CocoaPods from the terminal:
$ sudo gem install cocoapods

How can I debug that?
For others wondering the same, installing the gem takes forever. If you run:
export GEM_HOME=~/.gems export PATH=$GEM_HOME/bin:$PATH gem install cocoapods -V
Installing with flag V enables verbose output which will let you see all the output as it is going through the download and install, it's quite a lot.
update gem to the newest release using
sudo gem update --system and it should work a bit faster

- pod init
- Open podfile
- Add appropriate pod
- pod install
