Using Swift Inside a Linux-Based Docker Container Environment

Using Swift Inside a Linux-Based Docker Container Environment

In this tutorial, we will learn how to Use Swift Inside a Linux-Based Docker Container Environment. Learn Exploring Linux-based concepts to containerize your Swift development.

Is a Mac required to run Swift? No. Swift is a programming language that is designed to work with Apple’s ecosystem. However, it can run on Linux. It is not just written for Apple products.

Let’s utilize Docker to create an environment suitable for Swift to run and perform its instructions:

curl -O https://swift.org/builds/swift-5.2.4-release/amazonlinux2/swift-5.2.4-RELEASE/swift-5.2.4-RELEASE-amazonlinux2.tar.gz
tar -xf swift-5.2.4-RELEASE-amazonlinux2.tar.gz
sudo cp -R ./swift-5.2.4-RELEASE-amazonlinux2 /usr/local/bin/

Great! It looks like we can run the swift command and move forward.

Not so fast… we need swift to be accessible from anywhere.

At the moment, due to the location of the binary file, the only way to run swift is to execute directly from the path /usr/local/bin/swift-5.2.4-RELEASE-amazonlinux2/local/bin/swift.

Docker: Installing Docker and Understanding basic docker commands

“Docker: Understanding Docker Architecture and Components”, The First thing we are going to do is to run the “docker run hello-world” command. This command tries to find the “hello-world” image locally and if not found, it then downloads an image from the docker hub and runs the container out of this image.
