Hi,

I think it's not. Developing iOS app requires Xcode (for signing and etc).
The Xcode is very complex and it's only available on Mac OS

Hi,

As part of Swift.org, Apple has open sourced the Swift compiler, the stdlib and a few other things such as the package manager. iOS applications can depend on all the frameworks that are part of the Cocoa API including UIKit for interface development. All of these frameworks are strongly tied to both Xcode and the actual iOS operating system itself and none of these elements have been open sourced by Apple.

So the intention of the open source project is not to allow iOS (or OS X) applications in different environments but rather to allow applications native to those different environment to use and benefit from the Swift language.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Simon
