Kitura

A new lightweight web framework from IBM that lets you build end-to-end web services with complex routes in Swift and quickly deploy them on both OSX and Linux. Kitura’s design is inspired by popular Node.js framework, Express.js, in particular its URL routing and pluggable middleware. It currently includes URL routing for GET, POST, PUT and DELETE requests, support for URL parameters, static file serving, JSON parsing and pluggable middleware. Kitura is an exciting project that promises to let you build both mobile front-end and back-end portions of an app in the same language.
