Scheduled NSTimer with a Swift closure
View NSTimer+Closure.swift
extension NSTimer {
Creates and schedules a one-time `NSTimer` instance.
- Parameters:
- delay: The delay before execution.
- handler: A closure to execute after `delay`.
- Returns: The newly-created `NSTimer` instance.
jQuery templates use constructs like:
{{if condition}} print something{{/if}}
This, of course, completely screws up Django templates,
because Django thinks {{ and }} mean something.
Wrap {% verbatim %} and {% endverbatim %} around those
blocks of jQuery templates and this will try its best

How to create a Swift modular library

I am trying to determine if it is possible to build a Swift dynamic library which is itself composed of one of more private modules, without needing to expose to that fact to outside users. My hope was that I could build the private module as a static library, which would be linked into the primary (dynamic) library. The dylib could then be deployed together with its swiftmodule and swiftdoc and be imported, with the private module and its symbols not being exposed at all.

Unfortunately, what I'm currently observing seems to indicate that the private module's swiftmodule also has to be available for the primary library to be successfully imported.

This can be reproduced as follows. I have the following directory structure:
