Swiftpack.co - Package - NobodyNada/Clibwebsockets


A Swift system module for libwebsockets

This is a system module that allows Swift Package Manager projects to use libwebsockets. To use this module, you must download & install libwebsockets from https://github.com/warmcat/libwebsockets.

macOS and Linux

The following packages must be present and marked as dependencies to allow Xcode and Swift Package manager to compile:

.package(url: "https://github.com/NobodyNada/Clibwebsockets.git", from: "1.3.0"),
.package(url: "https://github.com/NobodyNada/COpenSSL.git", from: "0.1.0"),
.package(url: "https://github.com/NobodyNada/Clibuv.git", from: "0.0.0"),
.package(url: "https://github.com/NobodyNada/Clibevent.git", from: "0.0.0")

Alternatively, the following arguments can be used in place of the COpenSSL, Clibuv, and Clibevent dependencies (will only work from the command line, not Xcode):

swift build -Xswiftc -lwebsockets -Xswiftc -I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include -Xswiftc -I/usr/local/include -Xswiftc -L/usr/local/lib -Xlinker -L/usr/local/lib -Xlinker -lwebsockets

Please note that swift build will not work without COpenSSL, Clibuv, and Clibevent dependencies or the arguments above.


Swift must be installed according to the Swift Getting Started. To build libwebsockets, vcpkg is recommended. For example:

mkdir C:\SourceCache
git clone https://github.com/microsoft/vcpkg.git
cd vcpkg
vcpkg.exe integrate install
vcpkg.exe install libwebsockets

To compile your Swift project, swift build is not enough. The libraries must be linked against:

swift build -Xswiftc -lwebsockets -Xswiftc -I"C:\SourceCache\vcpkg\packages\openssl-windows_x64-windows\include" -Xswiftc -I"C:\SourceCache\vcpkg\packages\libuv_x64-windows\include" -Xswiftc -I"C:\SourceCache\vcpkg\packages\libwebsockets_x64-windows\include" -Xswiftc -L"C:\SourceCache\vcpkg\packages\libwebsockets_x64-windows\lib" -Xlinker -lwebsockets -Xlinker /INCREMENTAL:NO -v

This command assumes that you used vcpkg and that libwebsockets is present at C:\SourceCache. Please note that error: Error Domain=NSCocoaErrorDomain Code=256 "(null)" due to a bug in Swift, but the compile will complete properly.
