Vapor Example

Fork this example project as a boilerplate for working with Vapor.

Check out the live demo running on Ubuntu.


Build Status PRs Welcome Slack Status


View Vapor for documentation.


Swift 2.2 or later is required (3.0 or later for certain features).

Works on Ubuntu, Docker, Heroku, OS X


Swift 2.2

Visit Getting Started in the Vapor Wiki for more details about using Swift 2.2.

Swift 3.0

Check out Kylef's swiftenv for ensuring you have the latest version of Swift installed. This project contains a .swift-version file which will tell swiftenv which version of Swift to build with automatically.

If you dont want to use swiftenv, visit Swift.org to learn more about installing development snapshots on your system.

Vapor CLI

The Vapor Command Line Interface makes it easy to build and run Vapor projects. Install it here


If you have the Vapor CLI, use vapor new <project-name> to create your new application.

Then run vapor build and vapor run.

Otherwise, clone this repo and run swift build to compile your application, then run .build/debug/App.

Xcode 7.3

Run vapor xcode which will create the Xcode Project and open Xcode 7.3. Make sure Xcode > Toolchains is set to swift-DEVELOPMENT-SNAPSHOT-2016-05-09-a.xctoolchain or later.


Make sure your Xcode project is set to run with the working directory set to the root of the project. You can do this by going to Schemes (App or VaporApp) > Edit Scheme > Run > Options > Working Directory > Use Custom Working Directory.


Check the Vapor documentation for more in-depth deployment instructions.


To start your Vapor site automatically when the server is booted, add this file to your server.


description "Vapor Example"

start on startup

exec /home/<user_name>/vapor-example/.build/release/App --workDir=/home/<user_name>/vapor-example

You additionally have access to the following commands for starting and stopping your server.

sudo stop vapor-example
sudo start vapor-example

The following script is useful for upgrading your website.

git pull
swift build --configuration release
sudo stop vapor-example
sudo start vapor-example


Use the vapor heroku commands in the CLI to push to Heroku.


You can run this demo application locally in a Linux environment using Docker.

Make sure you have installed the Vapor CLI.

  1. Ensure Docker is installed on your local machine.
  2. Start the Docker terminal
  3. cd into vapor-example
  4. Create the Dockerfile vapor docker init
  5. Build the container vapor docker build
  6. Run the container vapor docker run
  7. Optionally enter the container vapor docker enter
  8. Configure VirtualBox to forward ports 8080 to 8080
  9. Visit

Nginx / Supervisor

You can also run your Vapor app through Nginx. It’s recommended you use Supervisor to run the app instance to protect against crashes and ensure it’s always running.


To setup Vapor running through Supervisor, follow these steps:

apt-get install -y supervisor

Edit the config below to match your environment and place it in /etc/supervisor/conf.d/your-app.conf:

command=/path/to/app/.build/release/App serve --ip= --port=8080

Now register the app with Supervisor and start it up:

supervisorctl reread
supervisorctl add your-app
supervisorctl start your-app # `add` may have auto-started, so disregard an “already started” error here


With the app now running via Supervisor, you can use this sample nginx config to proxy it through Nginx:

server {
	server_name your.host;
	listen 80;

	root /path/to/app/Public;

	# Serve all public/static files via nginx and then fallback to Vapor for the rest
	try_files $uri @proxy;

	location @proxy {
		# Make sure the port here matches the port in your Supervisor config
		proxy_set_header Host $host;
		proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
		proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
		proxy_connect_timeout 3s;
		proxy_read_timeout 10s;
