The Swift Package Manager is a dependency manager integrated into the swift compiler and Xcode. Note that the LDSwiftEventSource Swift package provides both a LDSwiftEventSource product, which is explicitly dynamic, and a LDSwiftEventSourceStatic product which is explicitly static.

To integrate LDSwiftEventSource into an Xcode project, go to the project editor, and select Swift Packages. From here hit the + button and follow the prompts using as the URL.

To include LDSwiftEventSource in a Swift package, simply add it to the dependencies section of your Package.swift file. And add the desired product as a dependency for your targets.

About LaunchDarkly

  • LaunchDarkly is a continuous delivery platform that provides feature flags as a service and allows developers to iterate quickly and safely. We allow you to easily flag your features and manage them from the LaunchDarkly dashboard. With LaunchDarkly, you can:
    • Roll out a new feature to a subset of your users (like a group of users who opt-in to a beta tester group), gathering feedback and bug reports from real-world use cases.
    • Gradually roll out a feature to an increasing percentage of users, and track the effect that the feature has on key metrics (for instance, how likely is a user to complete a purchase if they have feature A versus feature B?).
    • Turn off a feature that you realize is causing performance problems in production, without needing to re-deploy, or even restart the application with a changed configuration file.
    • Grant access to certain features based on user attributes, like payment plan (eg: users on the ‘gold’ plan get access to more features than users in the ‘silver’ plan). Disable parts of your application to facilitate maintenance, without taking everything offline.
  • LaunchDarkly provides feature flag SDKs for a wide variety of languages and technologies. Check out our documentation for a complete list.
