What do YOU want to see in ios-queryable?

ios-queryable is a library that simplifies writing queries in Core Data. I released it around 9 months ago, and it has become reasonably popular since then, with a hundred-something stars and a few forks on GitHub.

At this point, it’s basically a complete, working, well-tested library, and it does pretty much everything I originally set out to accomplish. However, I don’t want to simply stop working on it; I want it to grow and evolve and become even more powerful. So I’m asking you – the community – for your input. What do you want to see in it? Where do you want to see it go?

Here are some possibilities:

  • Support for blocks (i.e. passing in a block to the where: method)
  • More IEnumerable methods – GroupBy, Join, ToDictionary, Aggregate, etc.
  • Direct Sqlite support (that is, no dependency on Core Data. Sounds like a lot of work…)
  • OS X support (I’ve never done OS X-specific development, so I’m not sure what’s involved here; maybe it already works!)
  • Improved error handling (since, you know, there isn’t really any at the moment…)

Do you have any other ideas, or any thoughts on these ideas? Leave a comment and let me know!

Like Programming? Like Fitness? Why Not Combine Them!

If you’re interested in programming and/or fitness, you should head over to http://fitnessprogrammer.com, where my wife has started her blogging journey.

She’ll be blogging about her experiences with learning to program, starting with Codecademy.com and JavaScript. She’ll also be blogging about fitness and health, and her love for all things Beach Body.

Her goal is to eventually release her own iPhone apps, so head over there now and start reading about her experiences! If you’re interested in learning how to program, it’s your chance to see somebody become a programmer from the ground up.

Don’t forget to leave her a comment – she’ll appreciate it!
