Perfect App Template
Perfect App Template Starter Project
This repository holds a template which can be cloned to serve as a starter for new work. It builds with Swift Package Manager and produces a stand-alone HTTP executable.
The concept behind this template is to provide a structure for a larger project to grow into. It contains an HTTP Server config that loads from pre-separated Filters and Routes, a JSON config loader, and directories into which you can organize your handlers, objects and utility functions.
Compatibility with Swift
The master branch of this project currently compiles with Xcode 8.2 or the Swift 3.0.2 toolchain on Ubuntu.
Building & Running
The following will clone and build an empty starter project and launch the server on port 8181.
git clone https://github.com/PerfectlySoft/PerfectAppTemplate.git cd PerfectAppTemplate swift build .build/debug/Perfect-App-Template
You should see the following output:
[INFO] Starting HTTP server localhost on 0.0.0.0:8181
This means the server is running and waiting for connections. Access http://localhost:8181/ to see the greeting. Hit control-c to terminate the server.
The template contains the following directories:
