SwiftSockets CocoaPod

SwiftSockets is now available via CocoaPods. I’m still not sure whether that is a good idea, since SwiftSockets is:

More for stealing Swift coding ideas than for actually using the code in a real world project. In most real world Swift apps you have access to Cocoa, use it.


let socket = PassiveSocket<sockaddr_in>(address: sockaddr_in(port: 4242))
  .listen(dispatch_get_global_queue(0, 0), backlog: 5) {
    println("Wait, someone is attempting to talk to me!")
    println("All good, go ahead!")

Important goals include:

  • Max line length: 80 characters
  • Use as many language features Swift provides, such as:
    • Left shift AND right shift
    • UCS-4 identifiers (🐔🐔🐔)
    • Tuples, with labels

Get all the details on the SwiftSockets GitHub Page.
