FBSDK

The react-native-fbsdk is super awesome. However, after each set of big changes to ios/MyApp.xcodeproj/project.pbxproj, I had to re-follow the steps of:

  1. rnpm install react-native-fbsdk (per the docs for 0.3.0. It seems that master has simpler instructions.
  2. I had to re-add the libraries for the FBSDK. These were in my ios/Frameworks directory.

   inherit! :search_paths
   # Pods for testing
  end

Until I commented this out, I could not build. I’m not sure what this is doing.
