    Swift Version Manager

  • One disadvantage of Swift is how Apple decided to deploy new versions. They only come bundled with new versions of their operating systems. However, with swiftenv (kylef/swiftenv) other versions than the bundled one can be installed. So maybe that adds a possibility to run more modern swift versions on older hardware?

  • HomeBrew

    🍺 The missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)

  • Firstly, install Xcode or the Xcode command line tools. I recommend installing the package manager brew (homebrew). It installs Xcode command line tools for you and comes in handy when you install software that's not in the App Store (and even if it is!).

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
