Firebase xcframework integration with SPM

A small mirror for, to add support for using their binary dependencies (xcframeworks) with swift package manager.

This repo contains a Package.swift file, which uses a binaryTarget for all Firebase libraries (xcframework files are hosted in github releases).

Official SPM Support

Firebase currently supports SPM integration, see the official SDK integration instructions. This repo is an alternative for integrating with their pre-built xcframeworks for faster build times. See in depth discussion for official SPM support for xcframeworks here.


// swift-tools-version:5.3
// The swift-tools-version declares the minimum version of Swift required to build this package.

let package = Package(
    name: "MyLibrary",
    platforms: [.iOS(.v11)],
    products: [
            name: "MyLibrary",
            targets: ["MyLibraryTarget"]
    dependencies: [
            name: "Firebase",
            url: "",
    targets: [
            name: "MyLibraryTarget",
            dependencies: [
                .product(name: "Google-Mobile-Ads-SDK", package: "Firebase"),
                .product(name: "FirebaseAnalytics", package: "Firebase")

How it works

The Package.swift and Sources files are automatically generated via a script, which is set to run in a scheduled cron job via Github Actions.

The script performs the following actions:

  • Downloads the latest release from
  • Parses the to generate Package.swift and Sources/
  • Commits changes to master
  • Creates a release, with a tag that mirrors the Firebase release
  • Uploads assets for Package.swift (zipped xcframeworks) to the release
