Name from Swift Package Manager


(Joe Bell) #1

This may sound like a trivial question, but, I was wondering what term or
acronym folks are using for the Swift Package Manager. I've seen:

* Swift Package Manager
* swiftpm
* spm (or SPM)

and other variations. I've been writing tutorials on Swift on Linux and
the package manager and would like to begin using a single term, similar to
the way I'd write "make" "bundle" "rake" "npm" etc.

Thoughts?

* Swift Package Manager
* swiftpm
* spm (or SPM)

SwiftPM is what I think is used most often on the list. Very pragmatic, though I'd be tempted to call it "Nightjar". A nocturnal swift. Get it? Hello? Is this thing on?

Personally, I’ve been using SPM everywhere, and that’s been the terminology we’ve used in CocoaPods too.
I've seen Daniel Dunbar <https://twitter.com/daniel_dunbar> call it swiftpm on twitter a few times, same with Max Howell <https://twitter.com/mxcl/status/684514808406740992> - so I assume that is the internal lingo.

Yeah, I've been using swiftpm/SwiftPM because I decided SPM wasn't very clear/searchable.

We are hoping that people will adopt SwiftPM.

* Swift Package Manager
* swiftpm
* spm (or SPM)

SwiftPM is what I think is used most often on the list. Very pragmatic, though I'd be tempted to call it "Nightjar". A nocturnal swift. Get it? Hello? Is this thing on?

Oooh. This I like.


(Max Howell) #6

Alternatively, call it `swift build`

SwiftPM it is... thanks!
