In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Swift Programming Language on Fedora 37. For those of you who didn’t know, Swift is a powerful and intuitive general-purpose programming language, it’s designed to work on multiple platforms and it’s open-source, which means that developers can contribute to its development, and use the language for developing on other platforms besides Apple’s ecosystem.
Swift is also a high-performance language, it’s designed to be fast and efficient, it uses modern techniques such as automatic reference counting (ARC) and optional types to help developers write more efficient code. It also includes features such as closures, generics, and operator overloading which make it a versatile language for many different types of development. Swift is also designed to be easy to learn, its syntax is easy to read and understand, and it’s similar to other modern programming languages such as Python or Java, which makes it easy for developers who are already familiar with other languages to pick up.
This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘
