Hi Swift enthusiasts!
My name is Dmitri Pavlutin. I'm a Swift enthusiast too!
When I publish articles about Swift, one drawback (compared to
share new articles. Such situation negatively affects the propagation
of new content about Swift.
can submit to http://www.echojs.com/, https://jslive.com/,
These sites bring a lot of benefits for bloggers (easier to gain
traffic), readers (much easier to discover valuable content) and as
echojs.com actually generates traffic to my blog comparable to twitter.com.
Swift should implement the same efficient strategy.
In my view, an aggregator (for Swift content only) brings the
- Easier for developers to find quality information about the language:
* Newest articles, tutorials, books publishing, etc;
* Language evolution announcements: new versions, hot proposals, etc;
* Swift community news: conferences, meetups;
* Promote the high-rated posts to top, by implement a voting system
(the way http://echojs.com does)
- Easier for bloggers to share their content and reach wider audience;
as result it stimulates to write more content about Swift;
Beneficial side effects:
- The backend side application must be written in Swift using Kitura,
Perfect or alternative;
- The application should be open sourced;
- Put efforts on code quality and performance. This should serve a
demonstration how comfortable Swift is for backend development.
The motto: "On Swift, about Swift, for Swift developers!"
Let's start the brainstorming:
- What do you think about the benefits of such a project?
- Why such an aggregator is better (or worse) than existing
alternatives like https://www.reddit.com/r/swift/?
- Maybe such a project is already in development. Do you know some?
- Swift needs you! Do you wish to participate?
Thank you, Dmitri.
