On Mac, Unable to install the oneSignal plugin on Ionic

I am working on an Ionic application which uses the oneSignal plugin. My project is developed under Windows and the plugin works very well. But when I recover my project on mac, the plugin refuses to install

  1. I get my project with the git commands

  2. I open the access rights to my project folder

  3. I added :

sudo npm i --unsafe-perm
sudo gem install cocoapods
pod setup
pod repo update
  1. finally when I add
sudo cordova platform add ios@latest

I get this warning :

"framework" tag with type "podspec" is deprecated and will be removed. Please use the "podspec" tag.

Failed to install 'onesignal-cordova-plugin': undefined

Failed to restore plugin "onesignal-cordova-plugin" from config.xml. You might need to try adding it again. 
Error: /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.3.0/gems/claide-1.0.3/lib/claide/command.rb:439:in `help!':
 [!] You cannot run CocoaPods as root. (CLAide::Help)

If I try to uninstall and install oneSignal again I get this alert :

"framework" tag with type "podspec" is deprecated and will be removed. Please use the "podspec" tag.

I saw that it was advisable to install the oneSignal plugin without sudo but when I do this I get this error message:

Error: EACCES: permission denied, open '/Users/macos/Library/Preferences/insight-nodejs/insight-cordova.json.1999532748'

Cordova -v : 9.0.0 (cordova-lib@9.0.1) - ionic -v : 5.2.3

Do you have any idea of the problem ?

Never run anything involving Ionic development with elevated privileges. It’s a needless security risk, it makes your system impossible for others to replicate, so your bugs will remain mysterious to everybody without your specific computer, and as you’ve discovered, CocoaPods are trying to save you from yourself. Let nvm manage your node installation instead.

Thank you for your reply. Finally I uninstall everything to start again. It works but difficult to say what the problem was really …
