SPM Tips in Kitura Swift-server side May 2021

Another Swift Option

Check official doc (this Link : https://www.kitura.dev/docs/getting-started/installation)

Environment Big Sur 11.2.3, Xcode 12.4, swift 5.4

  1. Part GetStart

The doc with command line “kitura init”. It’s should updated ‘kitura init “your file name” ‘

2. SPM

It’s Beef in.

Some SPM have the erro with “explicit name issue”

That is what I try this two days result.

For using convenience, you can just copy code below.


In Package.swift file.

let package = Package(

name: “SPMKitura”,

dependencies: [

.package(url: “https://github.com/Kitura/Kitura.git", .upToNextMajor(from: “2.9.200”)),

.package(url: “https://github.com/IBM-Swift/HeliumLogger.git", from: “1.7.1”),

.package(url: “https://github.com/IBM-Swift/CloudEnvironment.git", from: “9.0.0”),

.package(url: “https://github.com/RuntimeTools/SwiftMetrics.git", from: “2.0.0”),

.package(url: “https://github.com/IBM-Swift/Health.git", from: “1.0.0”),

.package(name:”KituraOpenAPI”, url: “https://github.com/IBM-Swift/Kitura-OpenAPI.git", from: “1.4.0”),

.package(name: “SwiftKuery”, url: “https://github.com/IBM-Swift/Swift-Kuery.git", from: “3.0.1”) ,

.package(url: “https://github.com/IBM-Swift/SwiftKueryMySQL.git", from: “2.0.2”),

.package(url: “https://github.com/Kitura/Kitura-Session.git", .upToNextMinor(from: “3.3.4” )),


targets: [

.target(name: “SPMKitura”,

dependencies: [ .target(name: “Application”), “Kitura”,”KituraOpenAPI”,”SwiftKueryMySQL”,”SwiftKuery”,]),

.target(name: “Application”,

dependencies: [“Kitura”, “CloudEnvironment”, “SwiftMetrics”,”Health”,”KituraOpenAPI”,”SwiftKueryMySQL”,”SwiftKuery”,”HeliumLogger”,.product(name: “KituraSession”, package: “Kitura-Session”)]),

// .testTarget(name: “ApplicationTests” , dependencies: [“Kitura”]),
