Are there any plans to allow binary libraries to be packaged and distributed through SPM?
I have seen this asked about a few times in the past and the answer was "no current plans, source based libraries only" but the most recent answer I could find was ~2 years ago. Is this still the case?
Reason for asking:
I work on Firebase iOS and we have a large number of frameworks with a mix of open source SDKs on GitHub and closed source SDKs that we package as binaries. We ship them via CocoaPods, Carthage, and as a zip file for those who don't want to use a package manager.
We've had requests already, but I anticipate a large influx of requests once there are deeper ties to iOS and Xcode with SPM projects. At the moment it doesn't look like there's a way we'd be able to ship the closed source frameworks to customers.
