.package(url: "https://github.com/swift-server/swift-backtrace.git", from: "1.3.4")


This Swift package provides support for automatically printing crash backtraces of Swift programs.

The library is designed to fill a gap in backtraces support for Swift on non-Darwin platforms. When this gap is closed at the language runtime level, this library will become redundant and be deprecated.


Note: You do not need this library on Linux as of Swift 5.9, which has built-in backtracing support.

Add https://github.com/swift-server/swift-backtrace.git as a dependency in your Package.swift.

Crash backtraces

In your main.swift, do:

import Backtrace

// Do this first

Finally, for Swift < 5.2, make sure you build your application with debug symbols enabled. Debug symbols are automatically included for Swift 5.2 and above.

$ swift build -c release -Xswiftc -g

When your app crashes, a stacktrace will be printed to stderr.


Please see SECURITY.md for details on the security process.

Saleem Abdulrasool (GitHub, Twitter) for the Windows port.
