As there are currently no releases of the ParseSwift SDK you will need to specify either a branch or a specific commit with your chosen package manager. The main branch may be unstable and there may be breaking changes.

Swift Package Manager

You can use The Swift Package Manager to install ParseSwift by adding the following description to your Package.swift file:

// swift-tools-version:5.1
import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "YOUR_PROJECT_NAME",
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "", .branch("main")"),

Then run swift build.


Add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'ParseSwift', :git => '', :branch => 'main'

Run pod install, and you should now have the latest version from the main branch. Please be aware that as this SDK is still in development there may be issues with main.


Add the following line to your Cartfile:

github "parse-community/Parse-Swift" "main"

Run carthage update, and you should now have the latest version of ParseSwift SDK in your Carthage folder.
