How to include assets with swift package manager

My notes on using bundle assets with SPM

⚠️️ With the release of swift 5.0 There are more modern ways of adding resources to projects now see the article named: ⚠️️


By importing ResourceHelper you can access resources in xCode unitTests as well as SPM Terminal/Github-actions unit-tests

Example code:

let path: String = ResourceHelper.projectRootURL(projectRef: #file, fileName: "temp.bundle/qrimg1.png").path
guard let uiImage = Image(contentsOfFile: path) else { Swift.print("err getting img"); return }
Swift.print("uiImage.size: \(uiImage.size)") // 500x500



  • In newer swift version you can add assets. It has some limitations. Research needed
