Groovy vs Swift: What are the differences?
Groovy: A dynamic language for the Java platform. Groovy builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk. It makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning curve; Swift: An innovative new programming language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch. Writing code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and apps run lightning-fast. Swift is ready for your next iOS and OS X project — or for addition into your current app — because Swift code works side-by-side with Objective-C.
Groovy and Swift belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
"Java platform" is the primary reason why developers consider Groovy over the competitors, whereas "Ios" was stated as the key factor in picking Swift.
Groovy and Swift are both open source tools. Swift with 48.2K GitHub stars and 7.71K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Groovy with 1.49K GitHub stars and 414 GitHub forks.
