Bushel - the macOS virtual machine app for developers
I'm looking for beta testers!
  • For developers who want to be rigorous and uncompromising in their app testing.
  • You can set up your virtual machine for almost any configuration, from a fresh, factory reset of the Ventura beta all the way back to Big Sur.
  • Test, simulate, roll back and debug apps and scripts however you need to without worrying about destroying your machine.
If you want to be invited to our first TestFlight, or even if you just want updates on Bushel, sign up at the website, and we will get in touch with you. is the place to find Swift packages. 
  • over 5,000 packages indexed now, you’ll find a package that can help. 
  • help you make better decisions about your dependencies.
  •  host DocC-based documentation for package authors.
You can see how well maintained every package is, what platforms and Swift versions it’s compatible with based on real-world build data, how many other dependencies it will bring in and much more. Unlike an open-source library, running an open-source website requires ongoing time for maintenance and supporting package authors in addition to the time we spend on new features. Our work is primarily funded by you - the Swift community
If the site has helped you find a package, or if you want to support a community-run open-source project, please go to, look for the pink heart, and join over a hundred other people who support our work through GitHub sponsors.
