SwiftyDropbox crashes in Swift 4.2
19 Sep 2018
After installing Xcode 10 yesterday, I started migrating some libraries to Swift
4.2. While most migrations were painless, one caused me some headache, since the
library depends on
SwiftyDropbox which does not yet support Swift 4.2.
SwiftyDropbox to the library makes it compile, but the demo app crashes
at runtime, with the following error:
dyld: Symbol not found: _$S8Dispatch0A3QoSV0B6SClassO7utilityyA2EmFWC Referenced from: /Users/admin/Library/Developer/CoreSimulator/Devices/69F0BD96-7BB8-4B29-BE96-A423BA2FBD3C/data/Containers/Bundle/Application/CAAB9A58-4F89-4C85-BCDA-8ECF22D11731/VandelayExample.app/Frameworks/Alamofire.framework/Alamofire Expected in: /Users/admin/Library/Developer/CoreSimulator/Devices/69F0BD96-7BB8-4B29-BE96-A423BA2FBD3C/data/Containers/Bundle/Application/CAAB9A58-4F89-4C85-BCDA-8ECF22D11731/VandelayExample.app/Frameworks/libswiftDispatch.dylib in /Users/admin/Library/Developer/CoreSimulator/Devices/69F0BD96-7BB8-4B29-BE96-A423BA2FBD3C/data/Containers/Bundle/Application/CAAB9A58-4F89-4C85-BCDA-8ECF22D11731/VandelayExample.app/Frameworks/Alamofire.framework/Alamofire (lldb)
So, the problem is not caused by
SwiftyDropbox itself, but rather that is uses
an old version of Alamofire.
4.5.0 to be exact. You can solve this by adding a
later version of Alamofire to your
So, instead of having this in my
github "dropbox/SwiftyDropbox" ~> 4.6.0
I have this:
github "dropbox/SwiftyDropbox" ~> 4.6.0 github "Alamofire/Alamofire" ~> 4.7.0
This is just a temporary fix until
SwiftyDropbox updates the Alamofire version,
which hopefully will not take too long. I have sent a PR to the team and hope it
will be approved and merged shortly.
