You may think I talk about the Swift Package Index too much in this newsletter, and you’re probably right. After all, it’s what I spend most of my time doing. You might be happy using CocoaPods or Carthage and don’t see any value in replacing something that still works well. I don’t blame you, but hold on before you skip down to this week’s links, give me one more paragraph. 🤞

We launched a new feature for the Swift Package Index this week, and it’s not only for people who use the Swift Package Manager! “Try in a Playground” lets you generate a Swift Playground that you can open in Xcode that has a library pre-imported and ready to use. Visit any package page on the Swift Package Index, click the “Try in a Playground” link, generate the playground, and a few seconds later, you’re ready to try it out. That’s a great feature, even if you eventually import the library to your app using CocoaPods or Carthage. 🚀

If you want more details, here’s the launch announcement for the feature, or if you’re convinced and want to grab the app immediately, download it here.

Oh, and while we’re on the subject, this “Try in a Playground” button is a big part of why the Swift Package Index exists in its current form. I wrote about that this week too. I hope you enjoy the story!
