Swift Concurrent Collections (or SCC) is a library providing concurrent (thread-safe) implementations of some of default Swift collections. Similar to ones found in java.util.concurrent for Java.


Swift Package Manager

The Swift Package Manager is a tool for automating the distribution of Swift code and is integrated into the swift compiler.

Once you have your Swift package set up, adding SwiftConcurrentCollections as a dependency is as easy as adding it to the dependencies value of your Package.swift.

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/peterprokop/SwiftConcurrentCollections.git", .branch("master"))


In your Xcode project folder do:

  • echo "github \"peterprokop/SwiftConcurrentCollections\" ~> 1.3.0" >> Cartfile (or use nano)
  • Run carthage update
  • Add SwiftConcurrentCollections to your carthage copy-frameworks phase
  • Add import SwiftConcurrentCollections in files where you plan to use it


Do import SwiftConcurrentCollections

Then you can use concurrent collections from different threads without fear of crashes or data corruption

let concurrentArray = ConcurrentArray<Int>()
let concurrentDictionary = ConcurrentDictionary<String, Int>()
concurrentDictionary[key] = value

Safe subscript

Safe array subscript: for atomicity of checking if specified index is in the array and getting element with that index use

if let element = concurrentArray[safe: index] {
    // ...

instead of

if index < concurrentArray.count {
    let element = concurrentArray[index]
    // ...

Priority queue

SCC provides both classical and concurrent priority queues

var priorityQueue = PriorityQueue<Int>(<)


while priorityQueue.count > 0 {
        terminator: " "
    // Will print: 1 2 3

As you can see PriorityQueue<Int>(<) constructs min-queue, with PriorityQueue<Int>(>) you can get max-queue. If you need to reserve capacity right away, use PriorityQueue<Int>(capacity: 1024, comparator: <). ConcurrentPriorityQueue<Int>(<) creates a thread-safe version, with a very similar interface.

Release Notes

Adds PriorityQueue, ConcurrentPriorityQueue

Now you can construct max- and min- queues, both classical and thread-safe!
