The Swift Package Manager is a tool for managing the distribution of Swift code.

It’s integrated with the Swift build system to automate the process of downloading, compiling, and linking dependencies.


  • The Package Manager will only work with Swift 3.0 and above.

Let’s Start

Add Swift Package


Create a new Swift project called SPMDemo. (You can give any project name as you wish.)

Now let’s start the process to add Swift Package into created Xcode project.

Click on project name under Project section.

In our case click on SPMDemo under Project as shown below.

After this click on Package Dependancies and click on action.

Now, Search or Enter the package URL you want to utilise for your Xcode project and click on Add Package.

Once the package loaded it will look like below.

Now, simply click on Add Package and select the specific target (if you have multiple targets) in which you want to use this package.

Once you add the package you can check the package details as shown below.

Update Swift Package


If already added Swift Package has been enhanced with some new features/modifications in the future then, in Xcode project you need to update the Swift Package if you want to utilise latest features/modifications.

So, to update the Swift Package just right click on package name under Package Dependancies and click on Update Package.

We are done.
