I had a heck of a time getting this to work with clion but I found this:

Don't know if I'm being helpful or cluttering things up, feel free to delete.

Also, I used symlinks instead and it works well.

@refi.64 swift-language-git is now updated to provide "swift-language-git", and it installs into /usr/lib/swift-git. can you pls remove the "conflicts" so both can be installed?

as builds an eternity there is a binary build here now:

Hello, I think it would be great to create a ldconfig file. Something like

echo '/usr/lib/swift/lib/swift/linux' >> /etc/

And add a post install script to run ldconfig.

It would be useful for running swift applications where the shared libraries aren't in the same place for building system and user system.

carsme: sorry for the delayed reply, just fixed that, it was still set to depend on py3 from the previously used Fedora binaries vs the current official CentOS ones.

@typoisovok thanks a lot, also I guess you mean symlinking /usr/lib/swift rather than /usr/bin/swift.

carsme commented on 2020-07-20 20:21

At least the REPL seems to depend on Python 2:

> swift
/usr/lib/swift/bin/lldb: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After installing python2 it works, maybe this should be added as a (optional?) dependency?

This works great, thank you!

So, guys. I played around with Clion and VS Code.

To use Clion plugin you have to make smth like this, so Swift folder will be yours toolchain:

mkdir ~/Swift
cd ~/Swift
ln -s /usr/bin/swift usr

To use VS Code install [S]wift [D]evelopment [E]nvironment plugin,however you'll see that sourcekit-lsp is extremely slow.

Thanks for providing this :-) Can you please include swift-lldb or make an additional package? Thank you very much in advance!
