You will need to build Swift first ("utils/build-script" is the easiest way, but not the fastest), and you will also need to run the version of the Swift interpreter you just built. You can do that with a command like:

I’m not sure what I’m missing when I build "utils/build-scrip”, but I keep getting
"can't find source directory for cmark (tried /Users/Mohammed/swift-source/cmark)”

Just to know: I mkdir “swift-source” and then cloned the project in it, I tried to git pull origin master, but I’m still the same error. Not sure if this is related, but I did also "brew install cmake ninja".
