A generic object pool implementation for Swift that works on macOS and Linux.

🏁 Getting Started

Import Pool into your project using Swift Package Manager:

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "YourProject",
    products: [
      .executable(name: "YourProject", targets: ["YourProject"])
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "https://github.com/reswifq/pool.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "1.3.0"))
    targets: [
      .target(name: "YourProject", dependencies: ["Pool"])

Create a pool of elements:

let pool = Pool(maxElementCount: 10) {
	return "I am a pool element"

Draw an element from the pool:

let element = try pool.draw()

Do something with it:

print(element) // "I am a pool element"

Put it back in the pool, so it can be reused:


Optionally you can wait until it has been released:

pool.release(element) {
	print("element has been released and it's ready to be drawn again")

🔧 Compatibility

This package has been tested on macOS and Ubuntu.
