For programmers, it is crucial that they know the basics and set up the environment of Swift programming, and how to install and write codes. Swift provides and executes the Swift code on an appropriate platform. You are now configuring the same for learning.
To start your Swift coding, you need Xcode software. You can use the IDE (Xcode) for IOS and OSx applications, once you are familiar with the swift coding concept of Swift. To begin with, you already need an account on the Apple website developer. Upon registration, go to the link − Apple Developers Download
Next, select xCode and click the link near the disk image to download. After you download the dmg file, simply double-click on it and follow the instructions provided to install it. Follow the instructions provided and enter the Application folder with the xCode icon.
You have now xCode on your computer installed. Next, open the Xcode from Application Folder and continue once the terms and conditions have been accepted. If it's all right, the following screen will be shown.
Select Get started with a playground option and enter a name for a playground and select iOS as a platform. Let me summarize the steps once again for you all :
Programmers can also utilize an online compiler for writing, compiling, and executing Swift code. It gives confidence and the freedom to write code without installing compilers on your local pcs.
importCocoa var str ="Hello World!" println(str)
When the above-mentioned program is loaded, the next outcome should be shown in the Playground Results Area.
Congratulations, you have prepared your Swift setting for programming.
This module helped us in setting up local environment to build and deploy swift app. It is always a challenge for developers to set up local environment due to many environmental challenges but following some basic steps will make this journey seamless. Once you have your set up ready ,you can build and deploy app easily.
