Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
Hey guys, can you please share some information about the future of the SwiftyDropbox framework? Version 6.0.0 was released recently and some of the most requested issues were not addressed.
1. Do you have any plans to remove/update Alamofire dependency? v.5 was released quite some time ago and I can not migrate to it since I have to support Dropbox.
2. Do you have any plans to support Swift Package Manager? There were multiple requests for it on the github page.
And some lower priority questions:
1. Do you have any plans to move to Swift 5? This should be a painless transition, and there is a pull request open on github.
2. Do you have any plans to split the framework into subspecs? Build time and app size may both be reduced, if this is possible.
I would really appreciate some info, even if the answer is "no" or "planned for 2034". Thank you.
Thanks for writing this up! We appreciate you taking the time to share this. I've sent this along to the team.
The latest release of SwiftyDropbox was focused on supporting new features of the Dropbox API itself. While we do expect to do more work on the SDK, we generally don't comment on specific future plans. Plans can change, and we don't want to set expectations that may not get met.
We've updated SwiftyDropbox to work with Swift Package Manager as of v6.0.2. Please give it a try and let us know if you run in to any issues. Thanks!
As an SPM-newbie, can you give some instructions on how to do this? I'd love to get rid of the 'carthage' dependency...
@meadowsr You can add SwiftyDropbox as a dependency from Xcode's UI using File > Swifty Packages > Add Package Dependency. There, you should enter SwiftyDropbox's repository URL:
You can find more information in Apple's documentation.
One more update: SwiftyDropbox has been updated to Swift 5 in the latest release.
That's awesome, Greg! Any news on the Alamofire issue?
