inessential by Brent Simmons


Instead of diving right into Swift by writing Vesper for Mac, I’m tempted to do a warm-up project first, just to get the hang of the language.

Chris Lattner on Twitter:

Of course Swift supports #! scripts, you can immediately execute a swift script with “xcrun swift -i”.

What’s the obvious thing to do? I could replace my Ruby-based static blog generator with Swift code.

I probably won’t do this. But I’m tempted — and I bet somebody does this.
