🌤 Swift Combine extensions for asynchronous CloudKit record processing
.package(url: "https://github.com/chris-araman/CombineCloudKit.git", from: "v0.0.0")


Swift Combine extensions for asynchronous CloudKit record processing. Designed for simplicity.

CombineCloudKit exposes CloudKit operations as Combine publishers. Publishers can be used to process values over time, using Combine's declarative API.


CombineCloudKit is a Swift Package. Add a dependency on CombineCloudKit to your project using Xcode or the Swift Package Manager.

Combine allows you to chain value processing Publishers for one or more Subscribers. Here, we perform a query on our CKDatabase, then process the results asynchronously. As each CKRecord is read from the database, it is passed to the map publisher which publishes the value of the record's name field. Any errors in the chain so far can be handled in the catch publisher, which passes CKRecordValue values along to our sink subscriber where the final values are processed.

import CloudKit
import Combine
import CombineCloudKit

func queryDueItems(database: CKDatabase, due: Date) {
  let cancellable = database
    .performQuery(ofType: "ToDoItem", where: NSPredicate(format: "due >= %@", due))
    .map { record: CKRecord -> CKRecordValue in
      // Map each ToDoItem to its Name
      print("Received record: \(record)")
      return record["Name"]
    }.catch { error: Error in
      // Handle any upstream error
      print("Received error: \(error)")
    }.sink { value: CKRecordValue in
      // Process the Name of each ToDoItems
      print("Received result: \(value)")

  // ...

Note that the Cancellable subscriber from sink will cancel the upstream publishers when it is deinitialized. Take care to ensure that your subscribers live long enough to process values. If a CombineCloudKit publisher is cancelled before it is finished emitting values, the underlying CKOperation will be cancelled. This may be desirable when performing a query and processing only the first few results. However, failing to wait for completion of a save, delete, or modify operation may result in undesirable cancellation.
