This is my first success at getting Swift running on Ubuntu. There were several tries, both on Ubuntu 14.04 and 15.10. I finally had success by following the steps on this site: https://www.twilio.com/blog/2015/12/getting-started-with-swift-on-linux.html
You MUST run --privileged=true in order for Swift to run. Example
"docker run -i -t --privileged=true mountwe/swift-ubuntu:version1"
You will want to set the PATH once you are in the container. I set the PATH before I committed the image but for some reason it did not take.
I will correct this in a future commit.
Also - - - there is no editor in this commit. You can add one of your choice. I picked "nano" because it is easy to use and relatively light-weight.
"sudo apt-get install nano"
This too will be corrected in the next commit.
