Disclaimer: Not actively working on it anymore. You can check out some alternatives

Swift 2.0 required. Working with Xcode 7.1.

Disclaimer: It is a work in progress, it may break. Use it at your own risk.

Taylor is a library which allows you to create web server applications in Swift

Status

At this moment, Taylor only supports GET, POST and PUT HTTP requests. Better documentation is on the way.

Hello World

import Taylor

let server = Taylor.Server()

server.get("/") { req, res in
    res.bodyString = "Hello, world!"
    return .Send
}

let port = 3002
do {
   print("Starting server on port: \(port)")
   try server.serveHTTP(port: port, forever: true)
} catch {
   print("Server start failed \(error)")
}

More advanced usage instructions coming soon!

Playground

The easiest way to try out Taylor is using a playground.

For this, you need to have Carthage installed in your computer, is what it is used for fetching the dependencies.

$ git clone https://github.com/izqui/Taylor.git -b playground
$ cd taylor
$ sh setup.sh

And that's it, you should be good to go. Have fun!

Usage

You can use Taylor from the command line using CocoaPods Rome or Carthage as dependency managers.

Carthage

Create a Cartfile:

github "izqui/taylor"

And then run:

$ carthage update
$ xcrun swift -F Carthage/Build/Mac yourfile.swift

CocoaPods Rome

Create a Podfile:

platform :osx, '10.10'

plugin 'cocoapods-rome'

pod 'Taylor'

And then run:

$ pod install
$ xcrun swift -F Rome yourfile.swift

Dependencies

Right now Taylor relies on an Swift library called SwiftSockets.

Development

Join our Slack Slack Status

For the development of the Taylor framework we use Carthage for managing dependencies.

To contribute to Taylor, clone the project on your local machine and run:

$ carthage bootstrap

Then you can open Taylor.xcodeproj and start developing.

The reason there is a Mac app inside the project is for testing purposes given that you cannot have frameworks linked with a Command Line application in Xcode using Carthage. See here.
