Swift Package website


(Harlan Haskins) #1

Are there any plans for a website or some centralized place to share or discover Swift packages? Similar to pypi or Hackage?

It's kinda hard to discover libraries by Googling for git repos.

Some of our current thoughts on this are here:
  https://github.com/apple/swift-package-manager/blob/master/Documentation/PackageManagerCommunityProposal.md#a-package-index
but as the document notes, most of these are just thoughts and not a concrete plan.

In lieu of an actual index and those features being designed and developed, I agree it would be cool if someone started an informal index (maybe in the vein of the https://github.com/sindresorhus/awesome style repos?).

Hi all,
I started a repo with a list of packages which build with the current Swift Package Manager (only tested on OS X). I have very few packages on it, so feel free to contribute more.

Awesome! I've made a PR with one of my packages.

Thanks for making this!
