Why won't my CocoaPods Page Expand?

The CocoaPods Website is pretty complex, but it’s not a black box. Occasionally I see questions asking about what is going on with their pods. So lets look at ways in which you can debug a library that isn’t expanding on CocoaPods.org.

We’ll go through an example I just looked at, SCConfiguration. The end result is that we want to be able to show the Pod page that looks like this:

Sccconfig Pod Page

There are two places to start looking at the problem:

Check your pod page, jump specifically to the URL: http://cocoapods.org/pods/[pod], if that works then everything is OK. The search database is asyncronous with respect to changes in underlying data of the database. It could take an hour or two for the fix to propogate back to search.
