Do you have enough information now to explore Swift without knowledge of the English language?

1. Is there currently a shortage of information on Swift in Russian?
2. And would like to learn about Cocoa libraries how they are doing ?

Solution
Enough, Swift is just syntactic sugar, frameworks (including Cocoa) and everything else remains from Objective-C, no new libraries in Swift is not there, or almost there, so it is no problem to translate the code back and forth.

Information in Russian is not enough, but for other languages too, but people learn, you just have to understand that "talk is worth nothing, show me the code" (c)
Look for the code as well as tutorials (preferably video) that shows how to work with the IDE, there is need to see where and what to click, what to drag, because in Xcode, this is a problem, and not intuitive, even here vast experience in other IDE helps a little, the Interface Builder in Xcode - it's just something "not of this world".
Understand the syntax study will not be a problem, but is it worth it to start learning IOS development with a few outdated books where examples 7-8 with IOS when the latest IOS 9.3.2? - Jerrell_Hills commented on July 9th 19 at 13:02
: Try it yourself, if a lot of old examples will not work - so not worth it, I almost don't do iOS, but for OS X I have not seen yet, below the old code did not work, but IDE, the same Interface Builder - has varied quite dramatically, and perhaps every time in the direction of greater confusion, so the videos preferably fresh, for old you just can't find the right menu item, etc. - mazie.Towne commented on July 9th 19 at 13:05
: Fresh books API and interface components a little, but I actually they need, this plan won't be a problem ? The interface is not the main problem if you don't know the rest - Jerrell_Hills commented on July 9th 19 at 13:08
: Like I said, the API and interface components, Apple has not varied much in recent years. In Cocoa on OS X will not see the changes, and Safari (extension) is well studied, its API I began to study with the old abandoned versions of Windows, then sat down on OS X Capitan, ransacked, well, nothing new.

The interface is not the main problem if you don't know the rest

That you yourself asked and answered? Maybe other questions, too, the answer will come up, then why me? - mazie.Towne commented on July 9th 19 at 13:11
: I need to know in the basics only difficulties in learning the API and interface components according to the old literature, thank you very much for the help, I will develop in IOS - Jerrell_Hills commented on July 9th 19 at 13:14
: No problem, good luck, but trust me, about Interface Builder I knowingly warned, I worked with WinForms, and with WPF worked, and with Android, XML, Qt, Swing, JavaFX, Borland, same Safari, you name it, some difficulties arose almost everywhere, but Xcode confidently "broke all records", I have never spent so much time to figure out how to handle the Click from the Push Button, or Text Field to create something in Xcode called outlet, etc. - mazie.Towne commented on July 9th 19 at 13:17
you're so vain about Interface Builder - Twila_Rosenbaum commented on July 9th 19 at 13:20

: And what in it difficult? - Modesto commented on July 9th 19 at 13:26
I do a lot of hours Sam worked - IMHO - everything is convenient, not x-code debugging are inferior to many other IDE's here,Yes, but not IF, once if you know how to do the same outlet or action - then you will not give it complexity, and anyway some of the things we have to learn in any IDE - Twila_Rosenbaum commented on July 9th 19 at 13:29
: You which version of Xcode work? And don't confuse complex with heavy, even if once learned how, anyway, the process itself is uncomfortable, heavy, in a good IDE handler is added 3 or 4 clicks, and the similarity of the Outlet at all automatically. - mazie.Towne commented on July 9th 19 at 13:32
automatically IMHO garbage, waste me in the program is not needed, it often happens that most things I outlets are not necessary, and the action is not in a couple of clicks add - in also 3-4 starting from 4 second, it is now of course 7.3 - Twila_Rosenbaum commented on July 9th 19 at 13:35
: What do you mean "garbage", if you just don't need, say so, apparently, deadlines allow you not to hurry, not all so, and about Outletов, well if they are the same was done for all controls, and then here for Text Field I make the New Referencing Outlet, and it works well for the WebView it is not suitable for some reason, and to do otherwise is utter nonsense, only Apple is capable of. - mazie.Towne commented on July 9th 19 at 13:38
deadlines?)) what's the deadline) apple certainly love slubny so to speak to make and bring difficulties a) sometimes they are justified, not always or I don't understand something) b)still did not see bolshih difficulties in IF - been working with him and like it, rarely had difficulty - Twila_Rosenbaum commented on July 9th 19 at 13:41

In any case, English is necessary, even the Russian developers when writing libraries use English.
To explore swift come in handy portla type swiftbook.ru and all the lessons on YouTube.
All the most popular libraries you can look at the website cocoapods.com and use the libs from obj-c.
