Trying out Material Components

CocoaPods is the easiest way to get started (if you're new to CocoaPods,
check out their getting started documentation.)

To install CocoaPods, run the following commands:

sudo gem install cocoapods

Our catalog showcases Material Components. You can use the pod try command from anywhere on your machine to try the components, even if you haven't checked out the repo yet:

pod try MaterialComponents

In case you have already checked out the repo, run the following command:

pod install --project-directory=catalog/

The component implementations can be found in Xcode within Pods > Development Pods > MaterialComponents.
