The Swift Summary Book
A summary of Apple's Swift language written on Playgrounds.
Why this summary?
Apple's documentation is great for learning Swift, but who's got the time to read all that?
This summary cuts to the chase. It is directly written on the Playgrounds platform, which makes it very interactive. You can tinker around with it as much as you like!
Inside the Box
Once you've downloaded or cloned the repository and you open it with Xcode, you'll find most of the chapters from Apple's documentation, plus a Resources folder that contains extra material. The numbering in each chapter is consistent with Apple's. Chapters with a
strikethrough have not been added to the book yet as being considered unimportant. More specifically, you'll find:
- The Basics
- Basic Operators
Strings and Characters
- Collection Types
- Control Flow
- Classes & Structs
- Optional Chaining
- Error Handling
- Type Casting
- Access Control
- Higher Order Functions
How should I install this?
Getting started with The Swift Summary Book is a piece of
- Just clone or download the repository.
- You need to have Xcode v8.0 or above. You can download it here.
- Open the
.swiftfile with Xcode and voilà!
What are the features?
The Swift Summary Book takes advantage of the Playground platform and many of its powerful capabilities:
- The book is made of a single file that contains all chapters inside, which allows for easy access.
- Chapters use the Playground Markup Language, which brings rich documentation to the code examples.
- Every chapter has Page Linking, which allows to go back and forth from one chapter to the next, previous or another that was mentioned with in the chapter.
Keep in mind
The Swift language is still under rapid development, which means that the documentation is changing all the time, and some sections might break at a given time.
