Plugins for Swift Package Manager

Available from Swift 5.6

Paul Hudson      @twostraws

Swift 5.6 includes a raft ([1], [2], [3], [4]) of improvements to Swift Package Manager, which combine to add the beginnings of plugin support using external build tools.

At this point earlier adopters are reporting that the functionality isn’t quite far along enough to support more complex use cases, but it does at least seem to support SwiftGen and there are further examples demonstrating possibilities for DocC and swift-format.
