How can I tell SPM to just build a project from Github?
Specifically, I want to generate an Xcode file for Vapor, so I can include it as a dependency in a different Xcode project.
I've managed to generate the Xcode file by cloning the Vapor repo, and running "swift package generate-xcodeproj --output /path/to/xcode/file"
However, I'd actually prefer not to have to bother with cloning the Vapor repo in the first place. Can I somehow tell SPM to do the cloning of the project itself, just like it does for dependencies?
I've attempted to write a package.swift manifest that has only a single dependency (Vapor) and nothing else, but when I call "swift package generate-xcodeproj" it complains that it can't find the sources of my project.
Is there some way to tell the package manager that I just want it to build dependencies?
Is it clear what I am attempting to do?
