Description

Building web apps in Swift lets you re-use the skills you've already mastered, while being faster and safer than other languages. This course teaches you everything you need to craft your own server-side APIs and websites, all using Swift.

100% Swift 4: Don't waste time with out of date tutorials – here you can learn smart, powerful, and expressive Swift the way it was meant to be written.

100% Practical: You learn Swift while you make real web apps, which means you get to apply your new skills immediately and see them work in context.

100% Coverage: Master sessions, databases, logging, templating, user authentication, and more – everything you need to build your own web apps.

100% Proven: I've taught thousands of people to build iOS apps, and I'll help you transfer your skills to the web and unleash Swift on your server.

Server-Side Swift teaches you Swift and web development through real-world projects. There's a comprehensive Swift introduction for beginners, but the rest of the book is focused on building real web apps and websites using Swift.

Server-Side Swift includes 12 projects in total: eight apps, and four technique projects that focus on specific APIs. The projects are:

1. Million Hairs: Get started coding server-side Swift by making a website using templates and routing.

2. CouchDB Poll: Learn how to build a voting API using CouchDB and JSON.

3. Routing: Route web requests the smart way, with route chaining and regular expressions.

4. Swift Fan Club: Build your own forum website while learning about CouchDB views, sessions, and encryption.

5. Meme Machine: Learn how to process image uploads and work with the filesystem.

6. Templates: Take a tour around the advanced features of the Stencil template engine.

7. Barkr: Build a microblogging API using MySQL and token-based authentication.

8. ASCII art: Learn to fetch and manipulate remote data, and serve the results using ajax.

9. Databases: Discover how MySQL can help keep your data organized, efficient, and safe.

10. Instant Coder: Add GitHub authentication to your site and let Kitura do all the hard work.

11. AppleFanatic: Build your own CMS with multiple Kitura servers, Markdown support, and more.

12. Testing: Learn how XCTest can help validate your back-end APIs in seconds.

While building projects, you'll learn all this and more:

- How to transfer your existing Swift knowledge to the server.

- Connecting to databases to read and write data, using CouchDB and MySQL.

- Creating server-side sessions for temporary storage.

- Building re-usable templates to separate your presentation from your logic.

- How to design, build, and test web APIs for your Swift apps.

- Authenticating users to create login screens.

You'll also learn some HTML, JavaScript, and SQL along the way, as part of the Swift projects.

Server-Side Swift follows the same approach I used with Hacking with Swift: small, standalone projects that teach individual techniques starting from scratch, so you end up with a huge library of finished projects you can develop further or use as the base for something entirely new.
