Cannot `swift build` Quick on OS X #492
This site indicates that Quick does not build using the swift-package-manager on OS X. Using
In a nutshell, the error is:
I'm not quite sure what's going on, but @briancroom might!
Thanks for bringing this up @modocache! I was actually looking at this exact thing just last night in hopes of making additional progress towards complete SwiftPM support. As to your questions:
This is because Quick and Nimble both currently target the version of SwiftPM included in the
The XCTest framework on Darwin isn't a proper SDK framework, and is located at a different location within the Platform directory structure than frameworks like Foundation. This particular issue can be worked around by adding search paths as follows:
