Add a Package
Anyone can add a package to the Swift Package Index. Every package indexed by the site comes from a list of package repository URLs, stored in a publicly available JSON file. To add a package to the index, add a URL to a package repository to that file.
Please feel free to submit your own, or other people's repositories to this list. There are a few requirements, but they aren't onerous.
The easiest way to validate that packages meet the requirements is to run the validation tool included in this repository. Fork this repository and clone your fork locally. Then edit
packages.json and add the package URL(s) to the JSON. Finally, in the directory where you have the clone of your fork of this repository, run the following command:
When validation succeeds, commit your changes and submit your pull request! Your package(s) will appear in the index within a few minutes.
If you would prefer to validate the requirements manually, please verify that:
- The package repositories are all publicly accessible.
- The packages all contain a
Package.swiftfile in the root folder.
- The packages are written in Swift 4.0 or later.
- The packages all contain at least one product (either library or executable), and at least one product must be usable in other Swift apps.
- The packages all have at least one release tagged as a semantic version.
- The packages all output valid JSON from
swift package dump-packagewith the latest Swift toolchain.
- The package URLs are all fully specified including the protocol (usually
https) and the
- The packages all compile without errors.
- The packages JSON file is sorted alphabetically.
Note: There's no gatekeeping or quality threshold to be included in the Swift Package Index. As long as packages are valid, and meet the requirements above, we will accept them.
