On May 10, we announced the limited beta of GitHub Package Registry, a package management service that makes it easy to publish public or private packages next to your source code. It currently supports familiar package management tools: JavaScript (npm), Java (Maven), Ruby (RubyGems), .NET (NuGet), and Docker images, with more to come.

Today we’re excited to announce that we’ll be adding support for Swift packages to GitHub Package Registry. Swift packages make it easy to share your libraries and source code across your projects and with the Swift community.

Available on GitHub, Swift Package Manager is a single cross-platform tool for building, running, testing, and packaging your Swift code. Package configurations are written in Swift, making it easy to configure targets, declare products, and manage package dependencies. Together, the Swift Package Manager and GitHub Package Registry will make it even easier for you to publish and manage your Swift packages.

It’s essential for mobile developers to have the best tools in order to be more productive. With the growth of the Swift ecosystem, we’re thrilled to work together with the team at Apple to help create new workflows for Swift developers.

Since its launch, we’ve been amazed to see your excitement to get started with GitHub Package Registry. During this beta period, we’re committed to learning from communities and ecosystems alike about how it meets your needs and what we can do to make it even better. If you haven’t done so already, you can sign up for the limited beta now.
