In early December 2015, Apple's new future-oriented open source programming language Swift! At the same time as a new object-oriented and process-oriented adaptation two programming paradigms statically compiled language, Swift in language design, tool chain sophistication, basic library implementation, the official drivers and developers are an enormous number of first mover advantage , Swift can be said that open source software development community worldwide sensational event.
Swift advantage of being not blow, it said the following points: The first step to participate in the open source Swift - compile, test Swift on Linux.
Swift language open source project can be found at https://github.com/apple/swift. Ready.
Highly recommend the use of a fool of Ubuntu Linux as a desktop system, new software, update fast, most problems can be use sudo apt-get install to solve, very convenient, I am using the latest version 15.10.
Execute a command resolves all dependencies:
sudo apt-get install git cmake ninja-build clang python uuid-dev libicu-dev icu-devtools libbsd-dev libedit-dev libxml2-dev libsqlite3-dev swig libpython-dev libncurses5-dev pkg-config
If you are using 14.04 LTS or earlier, refer to the README appropriate solutions.
Download Source divided into two steps.
First, download Swift Source:
git clone https://github.com/apple/swift.git
The second step, download dependent project source code:
Note: Use HTTPS to faster here, if you want to contribute code, please fork next to your own user, not repeat them here.
Compile and test
Here begin the real exciting part of the test + compiler. Run the command:
utils / build-script -t
I use my weak station arranged 2.1 GHz mobile version of i3 CPU and 8G memory mini PC abruptly compiled 40 minutes, test it very fast within 20 minutes is over. As long as there is no final result Unexpected Failures, it shows that this compilation was successful!
Run the command:
If you get the following results, then congratulations, Swift compiled successfully!
Swift version 2.2-dev (LLVM 3ebdbb2c7e, Clang f66c5bb67b, Swift 1f2908b4f7)
Written in the last
Swift open source was very thorough, even on Ubuntu than MAC compile a more simple, use a set of Linux toolchain community, worthy of admiration!
Also, if you encounter similar clang: error: unable to execute command: Killed in error, do not think, is the memory of the explosion, maybe try a few times on the success.
