A Better way to Access Swift From the Terminal

A Better Way to Access Swift From the Terminal Introduction In my original post, I described how to create an alias to run Swift from the terminal. The only problem was when the user closed the terminal window, they would have to run the 'alias' command again. In this short tutorial, we are going to setup a way that the alias "sticks" between terminal sessions. Open the Terminal Window Again Enter the follow command to open your .bash_profile in TextEdit: touch ~/.bash_profile; open ~/.bash_profile Enter the following command in TextEdit changing only the Xcode6-BetaXX number (for whichever version of the beta you are using): alias
swift="/Applications/" Save the File by pressing CMD+S and quit TextEdit by pressing CMD-Q. Return to the terminal window and type: source ~/.bash_profile This will load the bash file without having to reboot. Now if you simply type swift then you can access the Swift REPL. After a Reboot Simply type swift from the terminal without having to set the alias again since it was loaded during startup in your .bash_profile.

Here are the promised resources from the talk: Slides Code Thanks again for having me!

It’s not your ordinary motivational quotes list.   It’s deep and it draws from several masters of inspiration including Bruce Lee, Jim Rohn, and Zig Ziglar. Here is a sampling of some of my personal favorite motivational quotes .. “If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and
you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” – Bruce Lee “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe “Kites rise highest against the wind; not with it.” – Winston Churchill “To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.” – Bruce Lee “Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius “There is no such thing as failure.

Use the Mobile App Mix to Choose an Enterprise App Store Strategy

In organizations developing custom apps and modifying third-party apps, MADPs are
