Markdown vs Swift: What are the differences?
What is Markdown? Text-to-HTML conversion tool/syntax for web writers, by John Gruber. Markdown is two things: (1) a plain text formatting syntax; and (2) a software tool, written in Perl, that converts the plain text formatting to HTML.
What is 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.
Markdown and Swift belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
"Easy formatting", "Widely adopted" and "Intuitive" are the key factors why developers consider Markdown; whereas "Ios", "Elegant" and "Not Objective-C" are the primary reasons why Swift is favored.
Swift is an open source tool with 48.4K GitHub stars and 7.76K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Swift's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Swift has a broader approval, being mentioned in 993 company stacks & 541 developers stacks; compared to Markdown, which is listed in 756 company stacks and 718 developer stacks.
