SDGSwift enables use of the Swift compiler as a package dependency.

השֹּׁלֵחַ אִמְרָתוֹ אָרֶץ עַד־מְהֵרָה יָרוּץ דְּבָרוֹ׃

He sends His command to the earth; His word runs swiftly.

―a psalmist


  • Compiler operations such as building and testing: SDGSwift, SDGXcode
  • Package Manager operations such as fetching and manifest loading: SDGSwiftPackageManager
  • Utilities for defining configuration files written in Swift (similar to package manifests): SDGSwiftConfiguration, SDGSwiftConfigurationLoading

Versioning note: Most products are already “finalized” at a state comparable to a semantic version one (SDGSwift, SDGSwiftSource, SDGXcode, SDGSwiftConfiguration and SDGSwiftConfigurationLoading). The package as a whole remains zero‐versioned because SDGSwiftPackageManager still relies on hidden implementation details of the package manager.

Example Usage

let package = Package(
  url: URL(string: "https://github.com/apple/example\u{2D}package\u{2D}dealer")!
try package.build(.version(Version(2, 0, 0)), to: temporaryDirectory).get()


SDGSwift provides libraries for use with the Swift Package Manager.

Simply add SDGSwift as a dependency in Package.swift and specify which of the libraries to use:

let package = Package(
    name: "MyPackage",
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "https://github.com/SDGGiesbrecht/SDGSwift", .upToNextMinor(from: Version(0, 18, 3))),
    targets: [
        .target(name: "MyTarget", dependencies: [
            .productItem(name: "SDGSwift", package: "SDGSwift"),
            .productItem(name: "SDGSwiftPackageManager", package: "SDGSwift"),
            .productItem(name: "SDGSwiftSource", package: "SDGSwift"),
            .productItem(name: "SDGXcode", package: "SDGSwift"),
            .productItem(name: "SDGSwiftConfiguration", package: "SDGSwift"),
            .productItem(name: "SDGSwiftConfigurationLoading", package: "SDGSwift"),
            .productItem(name: "SampleConfiguration", package: "SDGSwift"),

The modules can then be imported in source files:

import SDGSwift
import SDGSwiftPackageManager
import SDGSwiftSource
import SDGXcode
import SDGSwiftConfiguration
import SDGSwiftConfigurationLoading
import SampleConfiguration
