Swift’s New Registry-Based Dependency Management
Until recently, Swift developers were compelled to use source-based dependency management via git repositories to resolve dependencies and get their package ecosystem up and running. Enter Swift 5.7, now supporting a registry-based dependency management option to address the concerns above. In this talk, we will address how this method will benefit the growing Swift community. By leveraging Swift repositories developers can put to work essential software supply chain best practices to enable DevOps success. We will also show you how to ensure consistency across all your Swift developer teams for dependencies and packages as well as enable fast and reliable CI/CD in Artifactory as an example.
