Are you a developer on macOS who wants to quickly run Swift samples locally and deploy them to Bluemix? If so, IBM Cloud Tools for Swift is what you need.

IBM Cloud Tools for Swift (ICT) is a macOS application developed for users to deploy, manage, and monitor their end-to-end applications. The tool is part of a larger IBM initiative to bring Swift to the server.

Recently, we recorded a demo showing how you can get started with a Swift sample, run it locally on your Mac, then run it remotely on Bluemix. Check it out:

ICT helps developers on macOS receive quick access to running Bluemix samples on their local machine. Our latest samples run on Kitura, the open source web framework for Swift from IBM. After running samples locally, users can modify those samples and test their changes. Eventually, a developer might want to deploy that web server to the cloud. ICT helps you do that with a native macOS application that works with Xcode.
