      Description

      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
