Great post from Tim Condon on the state of Swift on the server. I'm not quite as convinced as Tim that this year is the year, but I do agree that the Swift team certainly keep an eye focused towards it, and there must be a reason for that. Will we ever see a first-party Swift on the server solution? I still believe it could happen, but probably not soon.
I've been doing a bit of work with Vapor recently, and as someone who has worked with web frameworks in many different languages, it's obvious how young Swift on the server is. Even though Vapor is already at version 4, it's still a very long way from where it needs to be to see any kind of large scale adoption in a world of very mature and capable other languages.
