Using Xcode 6 and xcrun it's super easy to compile and run Swift Apps in a script-like manner.Ideally just create a .swift file and make it executable chmod +x. Take a look at those two Hello World samples and try it out yourself.It's easy and very handy at the same time.
About a week ago I've build a 100% Swift App (one of my first ones, except for Notification Center Widgets, etc.) which also resulted in two open source components (both Swift) which I released and added to my Showcase.
Some days ago I've showed you how to deploy a Ghost Blog onto Heroku, using PostgreSQL and Amazon S3, as time passed by there has been a new Release of the Ghost Blog System, namely the big Update to v0.5.0 and finally v0.5.1.
I recently decided to move my blog away from a hosted VM to Heroku. The main reason for this were maintenance costs. Please don't get me wrong, I loved (and still love) my VM hoster, and if your in need for a lot of custom Software etc. you won't get around setting it all up manually, but for the needs of my blog, this was a huge overload.
