Quick reference

What is Swift?

Swift is a high-performance system programming language. It has a clean and modern syntax, offers seamless access to existing C and Objective-C code and frameworks, and is memory safe by default.

Although inspired by Objective-C and many other languages, Swift is not itself a C-derived language. As a complete and independent language, Swift packages core features like flow control, data structures, and functions, with high-level constructs like objects, protocols, closures, and generics. Swift embraces modules, eliminating the need for headers and the code duplication they entail.

How to use this image

Start a REPL

Swift requires a little bit of extra security privilege to run the REPL. The following command creates an ephemeral container, attaches your terminal to it and starts the Swift REPL. A great way to try out pre-release builds!

docker run --cap-add sys_ptrace -it --rm swift swift
Pull the Docker Image From Docker Hub:
docker pull swift
Create a Container from the Image and Attach It:
docker run  -it --name swiftfun swift /bin/bash
To Start and Attach Your Image Later:

Start your image with name swiftfun

docker start swiftfun

and then attach it

docker attach swiftfun
