Dear Swift Users,
TL;DR: MongoDB is halting development on our server-side Swift driver. We remain excited about Swift and will continue our development of our mobile Swift SDK.
We released our server-side Swift driver in 2020 as an open source project and are incredibly proud of the work that our engineering team has contributed to the Swift community over the last four years. Unfortunately, today we are announcing our decision to stop development of the MongoDB server-side Swift driver. We understand that this news may come as a disappointment to the community of current users.
There are still ways to use MongoDB with Swift:
- Use the MongoDB driver with server-side Swift applications as is
- Use the MongoDB C Driver directly in your server-side Swift projects
- Usage of another community Swift driver, mongokitten
Community members and developers are welcome to fork our existing driver and add features as you see fit - the Swift driver is under the Apache 2.0 license and source code is available on GitHub. For those developing client/mobile applications, MongoDB offers the Realm Swift SDK with real time sync to MongoDB Atlas.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt appreciation for the enthusiastic support that the Swift community has shown for MongoDB. Your loyalty and feedback have been invaluable to us throughout our journey, and we hope to resume development on the server-side Swift driver in the future.
