πŸ™‹ Hey there!
Please note: This project is still in Alpha Version and we’re actively working on forking over a lot of nifty features from SwiftEngine to make it compatible with SwiftNIO. We appreciate any contributors or testers joining our project!

Features 😍

  • Swift on Back-End - Improve productivity by using the modern Swift language for all your app's development needs (learn more)
  • Hot Code Reload - Increase the speed of your endpoints as each file is individually compiled. If a file has not been modified since it was last used, it won't need to be recompiled (learn more)
  • Automated Routing Logic - Avoid writing custom routers; SwiftEngine will automagically route each request to the desired file (learn more)
  • Uptime Resiliency - Reduce risk by leveraging a fail-safe and high-availability operating environment where each client requests functions independently (learn more)
  • Easy web based run-time error analysis - Save time by not having to dig through shell dumps; SwiftEngine displays the full error trace on your browser for easy debugging (learn more)

Getting Started πŸ’₯

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See deployment for notes on how to deploy the project on a live system.

Prerequisites ❗️

What are the dependencies we need to get this to work?

OS Version
macOS 10.13+
Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 16.10

Getting started with the project πŸ‘

  1. Clone this repo: git clone
  2. cd to SwiftEngine directory and run sudo ./
  3. Run ./ This should start the server running and listening on port 8887

Using ⭐️

Programming your site:

  1. Create a new mypage.swift file within the /var/swiftengine/www/ directory (see example below)
  2. From the browser, enter the following url http://<machine_ip>:8887/mypage (by default this is localhost:8887)

That's it! No compilation or dealing with shell dumps required! Your requested endpoints will be automagically compiled during the first request, and results will be shown.

Any swift file you place in /var/swiftengine/www will be accessible through the browser without the .swift extension. Read more about SwiftEngine's autonomous system and routing logic (here)

Example of a SwiftEngine based .swift file πŸ†

// Import SwiftEngine essentials
import SwiftEngine

// specify other required files for this file
//se: require /common.swift

// Entry Point function; where all code begins
func entryPoint(ctx: RequestContext) {

	// add GET handlers to the request context
	ctx.addHandler(forMethod:"GET", withRoute:"*"){
		req, res in
		res.write("Hello from SwiftEngine!")

	// add POST handlers to the request context
	ctx.addHandler(forMethod:"POST", withRoute:"*"){
		req, res in
		res.write("Handle for POST request method")

	// add catch-all handlers to the request context
	ctx.addHandler(forMethod:"*", withRoute:"*"){
		req, res in
		res.write("Handle for catch-all")
