Swift Package Manager

Step by step:

mkdir SwiftSparqlCLI
cd SwiftSparqlCLI
swift package init --type executable

Edit generated Package.swift:

// swift-tools-version: 5.6
// The swift-tools-version declares the minimum version of Swift required to build this package.

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "SwiftSparqlCLI",
    platforms: [.macOS("12.0")],
    dependencies: [
        // Dependencies declare other packages that this package depends on.
        .package(url: "https://github.com/banjun/SwiftSparql", from: "0.12.0"),
    targets: [
        // Targets are the basic building blocks of a package. A target can define a module or a test suite.
        // Targets can depend on other targets in this package, and on products in packages this package depends on.
            name: "SwiftSparqlCLI",
            dependencies: ["SwiftSparql"]),

Edit main.swift & execute by swift run.

import Foundation
import SwiftSparql

For example:

// construct query
let q = SelectQuery(
    where: WhereClause(patterns:
            .rdfTypeIsImasIdol() // in the followings, verbs for this type can be auto-completed
            .imasType(is: "Cu")
            .foafAge(is: 17)
            .schemaName(is: Var("name"))
            .schemaHeight(is: Var("height"))
    order: [.desc(v: Var("height"))])

// capture results by Codable type
struct Idol: Codable {
    var name: String
    var height: Double

Task {
    // request query to the endpoint URL
    // Codable type annotation for being decoded by fetch()
    let idols: [Idol] = try! await Request(endpoint: URL(string: "https://sparql.crssnky.xyz/spql/imas/query")!, select: q).fetch()
    idols.forEach { idol in
        print("\(idol.name) (\(idol.height)cm)")
