What Adding Dependencies Will Do To Your App in 2020

I like the title of this article because it recognizes that pulling third-party dependencies into your app has a cost.

👉 What Adding Dependencies Will Do To Your App in 2020

And yet we all do it because it also has its benefits. 🤦🏻‍♂️😂

That article is a realistic and practical look how the dependencies affect your app in terms of app launch times, app size, and build times. It compares Swift Package Manager 🤓, Carthage 🤷🏻‍♂️, CocoaPods 😬, manual dependency management 🥺, and Git Submodules 🤮.

I still have a dream of zero dependencies 🤩, but I know it’s not realistic in a complex app. 😑
