As of Swift 3.0 and proposal SE-0088, this library is no longer necessary.


Syntactic sugar for Grand Central Dispatch (GCD)


This library is Swifty wrapper around GCD. The design goals are to be small, simple, and make GCD slightly more friendly to use in Swift. For something more advanced with features like chaining, you should use Async.
