Shortly after Apple has released the open source programming language Swift, IBM provides the beta of Swift sandbox. It is
an interactive site, which consists of an editor (Source Code) on the left side
and an output (Result) window on the right and a Run button middle of them. The
editor provides syntax highlighting and find the matching parentheses. However,
errors detected by the user only after the pressure on the Run button, which
compiles modified before executing code.
Docker Container Linux Sandbox for Apple Swift
The sandbox is running in a Docker container on Linux and can use the corresponding Linux system functions. IBM has
prefabricated a few examples to access the GNU C library, for example, to
output the size of files.
The current beta is initially a simple
playground for simple console applications. At the same time it is likely to be
one of the first public Linux implementations of Swift.
