Swift is Apple's programming language that was introduced at the 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference. A year later, in December 2015, it was open sourced and ever since that has been able to run on Linux. Since it was open sourced, a number of frameworks have been created to take advantage of its power and speed. One of those is Vapor and in this tutorial, you will learn how to get up and running with Vapor.

What is Vapor?

Vapor is a web framework that sits on top of Swift to allow you to easily write server-side applications. These could be APIs that you call from an iOS or Android app, or it could be a fully-fledged website, like Twitter. It is comparable to Flask or Django in Python, NodeJS in Javascript, or Ruby on Rails for Ruby.
