Introducing the Swift Package Index

Hi all, we've made something that should be particularly interesting to the community here: The Swift Package Index. The project indexes SPM packages and presents various stats like popularity, maturity, activity, number of releases - and more. We hope it's going to be a great resource for the Swift community.

Please take a look at https://swiftpackageindex.com and let us know what you think!

Thanks for posting it @finestructure - Happy to chip in with any answers that I can too!

:wave: everyone

pretty cool index aggregation hub! :smile:

Looks amazing! Very clean and fast.

Would you consider removing Google Analytics though please.

Nice work on this! The package stats feature is very cool. :100:

i tried to add my own package to the list and run the validate.swift script, but it does not specify a swift version and is not compiling on my environment. i tried with swift 4.2, 5.0.1, 5.2 (which is the version matching the xcode in your github action workflow), and the latest nightly build.

output with 4.2:

This is strange: I tried this earlier with 5.2 and got Killed: 9 :thinking: With 5.2.4 on the other hand it worked.

I’ll need to take a look as to why that’s completely dying on my machine. Thanks for reporting it!

That's a great point, I didn't notice that it starts tracking without consent. I've created an issue: https://github.com/SwiftPackageIndex/SwiftPackageIndex-Server/issues/411

i’m not sure this is the same issue, the problem i am running into is a compilation error, not a runtime error. i think it probably has something to do with foundation incompatibilities between macos and linux.
