Taylor 0.3.2


Swift 2.0 required. Working with xCode 7.0 GM.

Disclaimer: It is a work in progress, it may break. Use it at your own risk.

Taylor is a library which allows you to create web server applications in Swift


At this moment, Taylor only supports GET, POST and PUT HTTP requests. Better documentation is on the way.

 Hello World

import Taylor

let server = Taylor.Server()

server.get("/") {
    req, res, cb in

    res.bodyString = "Hello, world!"
    cb(.Send(req, res))

let port = 3002
do {
   print("Staring server on port: \(port)")
   try server.serveHTTP(port: port, forever: true)
} catch let e {
   print("Server start failed \(e)")


The easiest way to try out Taylor is using a playground.

For this, you need to have Carthage installed in your computer, is what it is used for fetching the dependencies.

$ git clone [email protected]:izqui/Taylor.git -b playground
$ cd taylor/
$ sh setup.sh

And that’s it, you should be good to go. Have fun!


You can use Taylor from the command line using Cocoapods Rome or Carthage as dependency managers.


Right now Taylor relies on an Objective-C library called CocoaAsyncSocket.


For the development of the Taylor framework we use Carthage for managining dependencies.

To contribute to Taylor, clone the project on your local machine and run:

$ carthage bootstrap

Then you can open Taylor.xcodeproj and start developing.

The reason there is a Mac app inside the project is for testing purposes given that you cannot have frameworks linked with a Command Line application in xCode using Carthage. See here.
