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.
When building web-services and daemons, direct usage of this library is discouraged. Instead, use swift-service-lifecycle which helps manage the application lifecycle including setting up backtraces hooks when needed.
https://github.com/swift-server/swift-backtrace.git as a dependency in your
import Backtrace // Do this first Backtrace.install()

$ swift build -c release -Xswiftc -g
When your app crashes, a stacktrace will be printed to
