Sync - JSON to Core Data and back. Swift Core Data Sync.

  •        144

Sync eases your everyday job of parsing a JSON response and syncing it with Core Data. Sync is a lightweight Swift library that uses a convention-over-configuration paradigm to facilitate your workflow. Syncing JSON to Core Data is a repetitive tasks that often demands adding a lot of boilerplate code. Mapping attributes, mapping relationships, diffing for inserts, removals and updates are often tasks that don't change between apps. Taking this in account we took the challenge to abstract this into a library. Sync uses the knowledge of your Core Data model to infer all the mapping between your JSON and Core Data, once you use it, it feels so obvious that you'll wonder why you weren't doing this before.

FTASync - Allows you to sync CoreData entities with a Parse backend.

  •    Objective-C

Allows you to sync CoreData entities with a Parse backend. FTASync supports relationships (many-to-many have not been tested), conflict resolution (last in wins), custom data class names, and multiple levels of inheritance. For conflict resolution each relationship is in it's own conflict domain, but all entity attributes are currently in a single conflict domain. As with any open source code, do your own due diligence before putting this in a production app! There are a few known issues that still need addressed. They are listed below.

RestKit - RestKit is a framework for consuming and modeling RESTful web resources on iOS and OS X

  •    Objective-C

RestKit is designed to be modular and each module strives to maintain a minimal set of dependencies across the framework and with the host platform. At the core of library sits the object mapping engine, which is responsible for transforming objects between representations (such as JSON/XML <-> local domain objects). The object mapping engine is built on top of the Key-Value Coding (KVC) informal protocol that is foundational to numerous Cocoa technologies such as key-value observing, bindings, and Core Data. Object mappings are expressed as pairs of KVC key paths that specify the source and destination attributes or relationships that are to be transformed.

sync-dotenv - Keep your .env in sync with .env.example

  •    TypeScript

Projects often rely on environmental variables stored in a .env file to run... and because these variables sometimes contain sensitive data, we never add them to source control. Instead, these variables are added e.g. to a .env.example file so it's easy to get the project running for other developers. However, it's very easy to forget to update this file when a variable is added/updated in .env (during development). This can make it difficult for devs to get the project running (locally) because they rely on .env.example file to setup their environment (with their own configs). sync-dotenv automates the process of keeping your .env in sync with .env.example.

Serpent - A protocol to serialize Swift structs and classes for encoding and decoding.

  •    Swift

Serpent (previously known as Serializable) is a framework made for creating model objects or structs that can be easily serialized and deserialized from/to JSON. It's easily expandable and handles all common data types used when consuming a REST API, as well as recursive parsing of custom objects. Designed for use with Alamofire. It's designed to be used together with our helper app, the Model Boiler, making model creation a breeze.

CoreValue - Lightweight Framework for using Core Data with Value Types

  •    Swift

Swift introduced versatile value types into the iOS and Cocoa development domains. They're lightweight, fast, safe, enforce immutability and much more. However, as soon as the need for CoreData in a project manifests itself, we have to go back to reference types and @objc. CoreValue is a lightweight wrapper framework around Core Data. It takes care of boxing value types into Core Data objects and unboxing Core Data objects into value types. It also contains simple abstractions for easy querying, updating, saving, and deleting.

Transporter - Sync data between persistence engines, like ETL only not stodgy

  •    Go

Compose Transporter helps with database transformations from one store to another. It can also sync from one to another or several stores.Transporter allows the user to configure a number of data adaptors as sources or sinks. These can be databases, files or other resources. Data is read from the sources, converted into a message format, and then send down to the sink where the message is converted into a writable format for its destination. The user can also create data transformations in JavaScript which can sit between the source and sink and manipulate or filter the message flow.
