Apache 2 Swift3 macOS tuxOS

mod_swift allows you to write native modules for the Apache Web Server in the Swift 3 programming language. Server Side Swift the right way.

Checkout the mod_swift for more information.

This repository provides a Homebrew tap (repository) from which you can easily install mod_swift.


More detailed instructions can be found in the mod_swift documentation.

Install on macOS using Homebrew

Got no Homebrew? Get it!

Before you install mod_swift, we highly recommend that you install or reinstall the Homebrew Apache w/ HTTP/2 and the MPM event module:

brew reinstall httpd --with-mpm-event --with-http2

You can also add --with-privileged-ports if you want to use such.

Then add the mod_swift tap and install mod_swift:

brew tap modswift/mod_swift
brew install mod_swift

(yes, the account is just modswift w/o underscore due to GitHub limitations)

Check whether the installation is OK:

You can call swift apache validate to make sure the installation is OK:

$ swift apache validate
The Swift Apache build environment looks sound.
