I'm new to your language (Swift) I find it an interesting, powerful and fast programming language, but in order to continue my involvement with this, I need to solve a compatibility problem.
I do not have a Apple computer. I only use Debian GNU/Linux operating system.
So, can I developing with Swift through Debian GNU/Linux ?
I have Debian GNU/Linux 9.9 (stretch) operating system and I'd like to write Swift (even if it's just scripts) to later give it to a friend who has Mac pc, to integrate them into the iOS app that it does.
As I can see from the official Swift page, they do not support the Debian distribution, support only Ubuntu.
So I was thinking if I could use the official Docker image.
But the problem here is, how do I want to developing code on Swift rather than just running an Swift application. ( For the just code execution/testing I saw a very interesting guide here. )
Is it possible to attach the CLion IDE with the Docker container and see/recognize and use the Swift language from there?
Thanks in advance.
