How do I print the type or class of a variable in Swift?

You can still access the class, through className (which returns a String).

There are actually several ways to get the class, for example classForArchiver, classForCoder, classForKeyedArchiver (all return AnyClass!).

You can't get the type of a primitive (a primitive is not a class).


var ivar = [:]
ivar.className // __NSDictionaryI

var i = 1
i.className // error: 'Int' does not have a member named 'className'

If you want to get the type of a primitive, you have to use bridgeToObjectiveC(). Example:

var i = 1
i.bridgeToObjectiveC().className // __NSCFNumber
