SE-0063: SwiftPM System Module Search Paths - JSON output of install dependencies of a package


(Vadim Eisenberg) #1

According to the proposal:

We do not wish to provide a flag to automatically install dependencies

via the system packager. ... Instead we can provide JSON output that can
be parsed and executed by some other tooling developed outside of Apple.

This feature could be crucial for tools for automatic deployment of swift
applications, e.g. for cloud deployment tools. It is not clear if this
feature is part of future work or an optional extension to the proposal.
Could this feature have its own subsection in the proposal? Can the
proposal hint in some way that this feature is a "first-class citizen"
part of the proposal and has to be implemented?

Let’s just say I’ll build it as part of the initial work.

It would be a pity to delay the proposal by another week to clarify this section.

I agree — this seems like a straightforward future extension and not something that needs to be a part of this proposal.

Fair enough. Thank you, sorry for being late with my comment, great
proposal, no other remarks.
