This book provides the building blocks for developers who wish to use Vapor to create server-side Swift applications. It shows you how to take the familiar type-safe, compiler-driven world of Swift you know from iOS and use it on the server.
The only prerequisites for this book are an intermediate understanding of Swift and iOS development.
As you work through the book, you’ll develop a server-side app called TIL — Today I Learned — for recording and categorizing acronyms. You’ll first build a REST API to support iOS and other client apps. Then, you’ll build a web site with direct access to the data and protect it all with authentication.
