The IBM Swift Sandbox is an interactive website that lets you write Swift code and execute it in a server environment – on top of Linux! Each sandbox runs on IBM Cloud in a Docker container. In addition, both the latest versions of Swift and its standard library are available for you to use.
The fact that it’s a Docker container means that, basically, you can run Swift on just about any cloud service.1 Apple’s goal of getting Swift to be the language of choice for the next twenty years is off to a good start.
- Assuming IBM releases the source code, that is. ↩
