ReactiveX

I love that ReactiveX supports the same reactive paradigm across so many languages, especially Swift (also Java, Scala, C#, C++, Clojure, JavaScript, Python, Groovy, JRuby, ..).

πŸ‘‰ ReactiveX – An API for asynchronous programming with observable streams

ReactiveX is a combination of the best ideas from the Observer pattern, the Iterator pattern, and functional programming

And don’t forget RXMarbles for some experimenting with Rx.

Swift CI and Source Compatibility

Great idea: the Swift programming language has a continuous integration system constantly building various versions of Swift against various Mac and Linux platforms. Now that’s good modern software process, and super cool that its publicly visible.

Even better, this continuous integration is continually building third-party projects using the latest versions of Swift to make sure everything is a-okay. This is the Swift Source Compatibility Suite.

And best of all, that page has instructions for adding your own project to the list. That way you can make sure Swift and your project continue to get along fine. πŸ€— That’s a win-win.
