>             Project: Thrift
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Swift - Library
>            Reporter: Thomas Bartelmess
>            Assignee: Chris Simpson
>            Priority: Major
> We already have the option to generate Swift code in the Cocoa compiler, 
> however large parts of the (Objective-C) Cocoa Library still depend on Cocoa 
> and  Objective-C.
> It would be good to have a native Swift library that doesn't depend on the 
> Cocoa libraries.
> Design goals:
> - Fully compatible with the code that is currently generated by the Cocoa 
> compiler (both Objective-C and Swift).
> - Ability to run on Linux
> - Pure Swift, no Objective-C code.
> - No dependencies on closed source apple libraries
> - Keep the same interface, so that the library is compatible with the code 
> the current cocoa compiler generates
> - Better server support that the current Objective-C library.
> - Follow the new Swift packaging format to be compatible with the Swift 
> Package manager
