This guide will take you step by step through creating a new Vapor project, building it, and running the server.
If you have not yet installed Swift or Vapor Toolbox, check out the install section.
The first step is to create a new Vapor project on your computer. Open up your terminal and use Toolbox's new project command. This will create a new folder in the current directory containing the project.
vapor new hello -n
-n flag gives you a bare bones template by automatically answering no to all questions.
Once the command finishes, change into the newly created folder and open Xcode.
cd hello open Package.swift
Build & Run¶
You should now have Xcode open. Click the play button to build and run your project.
You should see the terminal pop up at the bottom of the screen.
[ INFO ] Server starting on http://127.0.0.1:8080
Open your web browser, and visit localhost:8080/hello
You should see the following page.
Congratulations on creating, building, and running your first Vapor app! 🎉
