New Project ★

Hello everyone: In case you didn’t notice yet, the ARI co-founded a new project, which we happen to call is SwiftSockets on steroids. It implements a lot of Node.js concepts in Swift. Does that make sense? You tell us! :-) The core are non-blocking, evented streams driven by GCD channels (or any other asynchronous input). code looks a lot like Node code:

http.createServer { req, res in 
  res.writeHead(200, [ "Content-Type": "text/html" ])
  res.end("<h1>Hello World</h1>")

Streams can be used to setup processing streams, such as:

spawn("git", "log", "-100", "--pretty=format:%H|%an|<%ae>|%ad")
  | readlines
  | through2(linesToRecords)
  | through2(recordsToHTML)
  | response

The project is still in its early stages but already comes with a lot of modules and samples to play with. We think it is a nice project you might wanna try, so don’t waste any time and head over to!
