Binary package dependencies


(Georgios Moschovitis) #1

Hi,

It would be great to be able to depend on 'binary' (i.e. precompiled) modules/packages using SPM. This would allow distribution of proprietary modules without the underlying source code, which is an important use-case.

AFAIK, this is not possible at the moment, but I would love to be proven wrong.

Any thoughts?

You are not wrong and it is on schedule of Swift 4.
