Commmunity-supported Swift Driver for FaunaDB

FaunaDB's Swift driver is now "community-supported". New features won't be exposed in the driver unless the necessary changes are contributed by a community member. Please email product@fauna.com if you have any questions/concerns, or would like to take a more active role in the development of the driver (eg. partnering with us and operating as a "maintainer" for the driver).
