Very noob question about swift and windows


(Bokka) #1

Hello everybody!

I have just a quick question: if I download now Silver for Windows, can I write a Windows based application using the swift language and compile it for windows like C# or visual basic in VS?

I have windows 7 32 bit at work and Windows 10 64 bit at home.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Yes that works fine. Depending on what you target:

  • .NET: You’ll need the .NET framework (works fine on win7 and win10)
  • Island: Island has no dependencies on Windows other than the default system libraries.
