This is a re-implementation of a Foundation-like API in pure(?) Swift, not an Obj-C framework.

My understanding is that the Swift/Obj-C integration is not part of the open-source release, because Apple’s Obj-C runtime is not open source.

You should be able to do this by calling the Obj-C runtime’s C API from Swift as you’d call any other C API. (Of course, the details of that C API depend on which runtime you’re using on Linux — IIRC there are at least two of them, and their C APIs are not the same as Apple’s.)
