IBM Cloud Tools for Swift (ICT) makes it easy for developers on macOS to deploy, manage, and monitor end-to-end applications on Bluemix. The tool is part of a larger IBM initiative to bring Swift to the server. We recently created a video illustrating the value IBM Cloud Tools provides when creating a microservice architecture that supports multiple languages. In the demo, we deploy and connect a Swift todolist sample app and a “legacy” Node.js runtime that queries data from The Weather Company. Whenever a user asks for the weather as a todo, the app returns the current weather in Austin, TX.
