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

You should see the following output:

[INFO] Starting HTTP server localhost on

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.

Starter Content

The template contains the following directories:


The config directory contains 2wo files ApplicationConfiguration.json and ApplicationConfigurationLinux.json. Add configuration options to these files and add them to be read and assigned in the config() function in config/Config.swift


This is for static files and Mustache template files.


Perfect-App-Template / configuration

The files in this directory are meant to drive configuration of your application. Add configuration options, filters, and routes here.

Perfect-App-Template / handlers

The files in this directory are handler functions for JSON and Web routes.

Perfect-App-Template / objects

This directory is intended as the location for where you place your object classes and structs. Tere is also an initializeObjects.swift file for invoking setup functions in one convenient place.

Perfect-App-Template / utility

Place utility and helper functions here.
