Sourcery Overview

Sourcery is a code generator for Swift language, built on top of Apple's own SwiftSyntax. It extends the language abstractions to allow you to generate boilerplate code automatically.

It's used in over 40,000 projects on both iOS and macOS and it powers some of the most popular and critically-acclaimed apps you have used (including Airbnb, Bumble, New York Times). Its massive community adoption was one of the factors that pushed Apple to implement derived Equality and automatic Codable conformance. Sourcery is maintained by a growing community of contributors.

Try Sourcery for your next project or add it to an existing one -- you'll save a lot of time and be happy you did!

Sourcery removes the need to write any of the mocks code, how many protocol do you have in your project? Imagine how much time you'll save, using Sourcery will also make every single mock consistent and if you refactor or add properties, the mock code will be automatically updated for you, eliminating possible human errors.

Sourcery can be applied to arbitrary problems across your codebase, if you can describe an algorithm to another human, you can automate it using Sourcery.

Most common uses are:
  • Equality & Hashing
  • Enum cases & Counts
  • Lenses
  • Mocks & Stubs
  • LinuxMain
  • Decorators
  • Persistence and advanced Codable
  • Property level diffing
  • But how about more specific use-cases, like automatically generating all the UI for your app BetaSetting? you can use Sourcery for that too
Once you start writing your own template and learn the power of Sourcery you won't be able to live without it.
