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.

  • 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

Example Usage

let package = Package(
  url: URL(string: "\u{2D}package\u{2D}dealer")!
try, 0, 0)), to: temporaryDirectory).get()

Some platforms lack certain features. The compilation conditions which appear throughout the documentation are defined as follows:

.define("PLATFORM_LACKS_FOUNDATION_FILE_MANAGER", .when(platforms: [.wasi])),
.define("PLATFORM_LACKS_FOUNDATION_PROCESS", .when(platforms: [.wasi, .tvOS, .iOS, .watchOS])),
  "PLATFORM_NOT_SUPPORTED_BY_SWIFT_MARKDOWN",  // @exempt(from: marks)
  .when(platforms: [.wasi])
  .when(platforms: [.windows, .wasi, .tvOS, .iOS, .android, .watchOS])
  .when(platforms: [.wasi, .tvOS, .iOS, .android, .watchOS])
  .when(platforms: [.windows, .wasi, .tvOS, .iOS, .android, .watchOS])


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: [
      name: "SDGSwift",
      url: "",
      from: Version(13, 0, 1)
  targets: [
      name: "MyTarget",
      dependencies: [
        .product(name: "SDGSwift", package: "SDGSwift"),
        .product(name: "SDGSwiftPackageManager", package: "SDGSwift"),
        .product(name: "SDGSwiftSource", package: "SDGSwift"),
        .product(name: "SDGSwiftDocumentation", package: "SDGSwift"),
        .product(name: "SDGXcode", package: "SDGSwift"),
        .product(name: "SDGSwiftConfiguration", package: "SDGSwift"),
        .product(name: "SDGSwiftConfigurationLoading", package: "SDGSwift"),
        .product(name: "SampleConfiguration", package: "SDGSwift"),

The modules can then be imported in source files:

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