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!
