Sponsors 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.
