I’ve been trying my hand a bit at the server-side swift stuff.
My background is Django and what I’m noticing is that the edit-run cycle is a bit long-ish. Two major issues:
Live reload seems an essential pre-condition for rapid development. I know that people have stumbled against this problem on the iOS side of things as well and have patched against it using Xcode/Inject. In any case it would be nice to have a way to do hot reload or a plan to mitigate it to enable more interactive ways of development.
To make things worse the default server I’m running sometimes will just no longer be responsive to interrupting which means you can’t even quit it anymore… making the entire cycle of edit-build-run even longer. No clue whether that is my fault or not but it’s kinda odd.
