Swift version: 5.1
Swift Package Manager is a tool that generates Swift projects then manages dependencies for them, and it’s commonly used if want to build your projects without Xcode. If you have Xcode installed then you already have the Swift Package Manager, but if you’re using Linux it will come with the Swift for Linux package from https://swift.org/.
You can create a new project using just one command, although make sure you run it in an empty directory because it creates files:
swift package init --type=executable
That will generate Sources/YourProject/main.swift for your code, plus Package.swift for dependencies, and more. Run
swift build to build your source code, then
swift run to execute it.
