I made another attempt to start working on a web application in Swift with Vapor. It didn’t get very far.
Apple introduces things like Property Wrappers, and the Vapor project responds by rewriting the entire framework, leaving behind work only partially done for serious web application components like JSON API, and the authors of those projects can’t keep up or lose interest.
Looks like it’s back to reliable and feature-complete Python and Flask.
I’ve decided to try to build a Slack/Discord bot that will interact with my newfound campaign manager. So far, it’s in Python, but I’m thinking I’d like to write it in Swift with Vapor.
