Provides a Swift macro wrapping some type declaration boilerplate in swift-tagged.


import TaggedMacro
import Tagged

struct Person {

    #tagged(UUID.self, "ID")
    let id: ID


➡️ becomes:

struct Person {

    enum ID_Tag {
    typealias ID = Tagged<ID_Tag, UUID>
    let id: ID



swift-tagged is a framework from the PointFree folks which aims to increase the type safety of your Swift codebase. It’s a handy tool, but once you need to wrap the same raw value twice within the same context, you will need to disambiguate your Tagged type via some additional boilerplate. The motivation behind this macro is to eliminate that little bit of boilerplate, to make it that much more appealing to adopt this layer of type safety in your project.


The macro declaration takes 2 to 3 parameters:

public macro tagged<T>(
    _ taggedType: T.Type,
    _ typeName: String,
    access accessLevel: AccessLevel? = nil


  • taggedType is the name of the underlying raw type – commonly String, UUID or Int,
  • typeName is the name of the new generated type,
  • and accessLevel is an optional access level modifier for the generated type – such as public, internal or private.
