Swift 3 New Features

By: Keith Elliott

Overview of this book

Since Swift was introduced by Apple in WWDC 2015, it has gone on to become one of the most beloved languages to develop iOS applications with. In the new version, the Swift team aimed to take its adoption to the next level by making it available for new platforms and audiences. This book will very quickly get you up to speed and productive with Swift 3. You will begin by understanding the process of submitting new feature requests for future versions of Swift. Swift 3 allows you to develop and run your applications on a Linux machine. Using this feature, you will write your first Linux application using the debugger in Linux. Using Swift migrator, you will initiate a conversion from Swift 2.2 to Swift 3. Further on, you will learn how to interact with Cocoa libraries when importing Objective C to Swift. You will explore the function and operator changes new to Swift 3, followed by Collection and Closure changes. You will also see the changes in Swift 3 that allow you write tests easier with XCTest and debug your running code better with new formats as well. Finally, you will have a running server written completely in Swift on a Linux box. By the end of the book, you will know everything you need to know to dive into Swift 3 and build successful projects.

Configuring Xcode server

To use Xcode server, you have to download and install macOS Server (formerly known as OS X Server) from the App Store on a Mac.


Installing is straightforward, and you can find detailed instructions at - //apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40013292-CH3-SW1.

Adding repositories for the Xcode server

The Xcode Server needs a code repository to do work and is compatible with either Git or Subversion. Any bots that you create will need access to a repository. A bot will try to connect to a repository via SSH or HTTPS. Apple does a really good job of describing your repository setup options.


You can refer to the following section of their setup guide for step-by-step instructions on how to configure your repos to give access to Xcode Server and your bot:
