Apple’s Swift programming language and Google’s Flutter UI framework for its Dart programming language have arrived for Windows 10.  

Swift is Apple’s open-source, general-purpose programming language that developers can use to develop programs for iOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, Linux, and z/OS platforms.

The Apple-backed Swift project has now released downloadable Swift toolchain images for Windows, which contain everything needed to build and run Swift code on Windows 10.

The Windows 10 toolchain is available for Swift 5.3 and is provided by Saleem Abdulrasool, a member of the Swift Core Team and a software engineer at Google Brain.

Abdulrasool detailed the many challenges to bringing Swift to Windows in a talk at the LLVM dev meeting last year. He noted at the time he managed to bring Swift to Windows through cross-compilation on Linux.   

Besides porting the Swift compiler, the toolchain includes

Getting a mobile app developed is no more a rocket science. A trusted development partner and great programming language like Swift will help you get an app that you have always dreamt of. Thus, all you need is to choose a dynamic programming language that will help in the agile development of your application and get you going through some simple steps. While the two most powerful language for iOS app development is Objective C++ and Swift, there are certain thought-provoking facts that make the latter a preferred option for you as well as the developers. Find out why.

#1 Quick and powerful

Swift programming language has been purposely made fast using LLVM compiler and hence offers high-performance. It is the succeeding language of C and Objective C, for which it is coupled with low-level primitives like types, operators, object-oriented features or flow control. All these help the developers to … Read More
