Oct 7, 2015 Literals in Playgrounds New in Xcode 7.1 is the ability to embed file, image, and color literals into your playground’s code.

Swift Blog

Literals are the actual values of your data represented in their native format, directly within the Xcode editor. For instance, there’s no need to type “myImage.jpg” in the editor – just drag your image from the Finder and the actual image will appear in-line with your code. Instead of showing RGB values to indicate color, the playground will render a color swatch.

In addition to looking cool, literals can also make editing resources much faster. Resources are copied into your playground’s resources directory if needed, so everything your playground requires is included within the document. Newest 'swift' Questions.

Swift: a developer's guide to Apple's new programming language

Until now, most apps on Apple devices have been built using Objective-C, the language almost exclusively adopted by NeXT corporation years ago and subsequently by Apple. Objective-C now seems to be on its way out, superseded by a language that looks to be "safe, modern and powerful", according to Apple’s engineering chief, Craig Federighi. But how powerful is this new language, and what difference will it make to the global community of developers building for Apple products.

What is Swift? Swift is Apple’s new programming language, which has been in development for the past four years and which looks to replace Objective-C as the main language for app development on Apple’s platforms, OSX and iOS. Although it’s a major departure, Apple have taken a lot of trouble to make the transition to Swift as painless as possible. But I’m good at Objective-C. Swift. Ray Wenderlich (@rwenderlich)
