SLRESTfulCoreDataUI is the UI pendent to SLRESTfulCoreData and right now has the ability to create and edit entities backed by SLRESTfulCoreData.


pod 'SLRESTfulCoreDataUI', '~> 1.0'


SLEntityViewController is a UITableViewController subclass which manages and creates or edit a NSManagedObject entity.

Let’s take the following sample entity as a reference:

@interface SLEntity1 : NSManagedObject

@property (nonatomic, strong) NSNumber *dummyBool;

@property (nonatomic, strong) NSNumber *booleanValue;
@property (nonatomic, strong) NSString *stringValue;
@property (nonatomic, strong) NSDate *dateValue;

@property (nonatomic, strong) SLEntity2 *toOneRelation;
@property (nonatomic, strong) NSSet *toManyRelation;


To setup and configure SLEntityViewController:

SLEntityViewController *viewController = [[SLEntityViewController alloc] initWithEntity:self.entity editingType:SLEntityViewControllerEditingTypeCreate];

setup property mapping, keys are the attributes of the entity 
and values their human readable representation which will be displayed to to user
viewController.propertyMapping = @{
  @"booleanValue": NSLocalizedString(@"BOOL", @""),
  @"stringValue": NSLocalizedString(@"String", @""),
  @"dateValue": NSLocalizedString(@"Date", @""),
  @"dummyBool": NSLocalizedString(@"dummy", @""),

// setup completion handler
[self.viewController setCompletionHandler:^(BOOL didSaveEntity) {
  // called when done, dismiss view controller here

To now display any data to the user, SLEntityViewController takes an array of sections in SLEntityViewController.sections:

@interface SLEntityViewControllerSection : NSObject <NSCopying>

// a static section which displays basic properties of the entity. These can belong to attributes or relationships.
+ (instancetype)staticSectionWithProperties:(NSArray *)properties;

// let the user choose an option from a finite set of values.
// enumValues will applied to your entity and humanReadableOptions will be displayed to the user for selection.
+ (instancetype)staticSectionWithEnumValue:(NSArray *)enumValues humanReadableOptions:(NSArray *)humanReadableOptions forAttribute:(NSString *)attribute;

// Let the user choose entites for to-one or to-many relationships based on the specified fetchedResultsController.
+ (instancetype)dynamicSectionWithRelationship:(NSString *)relationship
                      fetchedResultsController:(NSFetchedResultsController *)fetchedResultsController
                                   formatBlock:(NSString *(^)(id entity))formatBlock;
