Apple Makes Swift Programming Language to Open Source Community

appleApple said today it has released its Swift programming language for building software on iOS, the Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV to the open source community.

Apple unveiled a site devoted to the language, Swift.org, and has created a repository containing Swift’s public source code on the software code-sharing site Github.

The plans calls for Apple to turn Swift loose to the worldwide community of software developers who will improve it, add new features and capabilities and push its use toward new platforms.

Developers will be able to work in Swift on a Mac, but the Swift.org website will also offer a version of the developer tools that run on Linux.

LinkedIn, Yahoo and Hipmunk are examples of companies who have built iOS apps in Swift.
