Swift 5 Module Template

Use this template as a starting point for any Swift 5 module that you want other people to include in their projects.

STATUS: This template is ready and works in production code, compatible with Xcode 11.1 (11A1027)

Swift 5 Module directory layout

Features

Your new Swift 5 module will immediately have working, compilable code, and all these features:

  • Ability to be used from Swift Package Manager, CocoaPods and Carthage
  • Clean folder structure
  • MIT license
  • Testing as a standard
  • Turnkey access to Travis CI
  • Semantic versioning and a CHANGELOG
  • Included example/demo app

We make the assumption you are using an Xcode project to manage your code.

How to use this

Clone or download a release and run the ./configure program. It will ask you some questions and generate a project.

Or if you have CocoaPods installed, you can alternatively use:

pod lib create --verbose --template-url='https://github.com/fulldecent/swift5-module-template.git' MyNewPodName

You then add all the interesting features you want your module to have.

Using CocoaPods to manage dependencies for your example app

You distribute an example app with your new Swift module to show that it works. You may also decide to add UI tests to your example app and some people like to use testing frameworks for those UI tests. If you would like to use CocoaPods to manage the dependencies of your example app, please see the discussion at https://github.com/fulldecent/swift5-module-template/issues/8.

Automating the configure script

To skip interactive prompts in the ./configure script, use these environment variables:

Template variable Environment variable
__PROJECT_NAME__ SMT_PROJECT_NAME
__ORGANIZATION NAME__ SMT_ORGANIZATION_NAME
com.AN.ORGANIZATION.IDENTIFIER SMT_COM_AN_ORGANIZATION_IDENTIFIER
__AUTHOR NAME__ SMT_AUTHOR_NAME
__TODAYS_DATE__ SMT_TODAYS_DATE
__TODAYS_DATE__ (date format) SMT_DATE_FORMAT_STRING Note: this will ask you for today’s date but it will use this format in the template.
__TODAYS_YEAR__ SMT_TODAYS_YEAR
__GITHUB_USERNAME__ SMT_GITHUB_USERNAME

For example, you may use: export SMT_ORGANIZATION_NAME='Awesome Org' before running ./configure.
