I had assumed zealous iPhone devs would want a homogenous environment where the client and server used the same rough codebase and libraries. Kind of like the node.js crowd, which I'm equally inexperienced with.
Feels like Swift afficiciandos aren't quite as good at PR as their base competition.
I'm basically still back in the jQuery, Python/Django, Ruby/Rails, Tomcat/Java/Spring, PHP/Laravel, space. I understand the comparisons and tradeoffs with those. So, perhaps, I'm fairly agnostic about what's "hot" and "popular".
I really have no idea, since I haven’t used it. It is very new though.

I guess the issue here is that very few people have even heard of using Swift for server-side development.
