Building Swift from Source

swiftenv install can install Swift from source.

Listing available versions.

$ swiftenv install --list
2.2
2.2-dev
3.0-dev

NOTE: Swift 2.2 does not include the Swift Package Manager.

$ swiftenv install 2.2

By default, Swift will download from an Apple binary release available from swift.org. However you can use --build to force building the version.

$ swiftenv install 2.2 --build
