SSWG-0027: MongoKitten

The review of SSWG-0027: MongoKitten begins now and runs for two weeks, until January 17, 2024.

Reviews are an important part of the Swift Server Work Group incubation process. All review feedback should be either on this forum thread or, if you would like to keep your feedback private, directly to the review manager (via email) or direct message in the Swift forums.

The package is being proposed at the Sandbox or Incubating maturity level. Please note the Maturity Justification inside the proposal for details and indicate which you find more appropriate as part of your review.

What goes into a review of a proposal?

The goal of the review process is to improve the proposal under review through constructive criticism and, eventually, become listed on the Swift Server Ecosystem index page.

When reviewing a proposal, here are some questions to consider:

  • What is your evaluation of the proposal and its APIs/implementation?
  • Is the problem being addressed relevant for the wider Swift on Server ecosystem?
  • Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of the Swift Server ecosystem?
  • If you have used other libraries in Swift or other languages, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
  • How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?

+1 from me

I've used the library in production apps and it works well. Fills an important gap in the ecosystem.

I would vote for an Incubating maturity level


+1 from me as well. The library has been out there for a long time and has seen production usage throughout the ecosystem. I agree with @0xTim on the Incubating maturity level.


+1 this fill an important gap and it's nice to see an idiomatic Swift based implementation of the protocol


The review period has ended and the SSWG will now discuss and vote on the proposal.

I'm happy to announce the SSWG has unanimously voted to accept this proposal into Incubating maturity level! :tada:

The project fulfils all requirements of the Incubating Level, including multiple maintainers and an active stream of development, good CI and adoption of concurrency features.

We'll add the project to the list of SSWG endorsed projects shortly.
