Bookmark

A Swift wrapper for URL bookmarks which allow a file to be located regardless of whether it is moved or renamed.

Swift Package Manager

This class wraps Swift's URL bookmark functionality. See Apple's documentation for further information.

A bookmark can be stored (eg. on disk, in a database etc.) and reloaded and it will be able to locate the original target for the bookmark, even it has been moved or renamed.

A bookmark is an opaque data structure, enclosed in a Data object, that describes the location of a file. Whereas path and file reference URLs are potentially fragile between launches of your app, a bookmark can usually be used to re-create a URL to a file even in cases where the file was moved or renamed.

Some information links :-

Usage

Create and use a bookmark

// The original file url
let originalURL = URL(targetFileURL: ...)!

// Create a bookmark
let bookmark = try Bookmark(targetFileURL: originalURL)

// Access to the raw bookmark data
let bookmarkData = bookmark.bookmarkData

try bookmark.usingTargetURL { targetURL in
   // Do something with the targetURL which is the original URL
}

// ... Somewhere in here, the original url file is moved or renamed ...

try bookmark.usingTargetURL { targetURL in
   // Do something with the targetURL (which will correctly point to the new URL location)
}

Save/Load bookmark data

// The original file url
let originalURL = URL(targetFileURL: ...)!

// Create a bookmark
let bookmark = try Bookmark(targetFileURL: originalURL)

// Grab out the raw bookmark data
let storableData = bookmark.bookmarkData

// ...Save the bookmark data for later use, eg. in CoreData or in a database...

// Load the bookmark data back out from the storage medium...
let savedBookmarkData = <load bookmark data from somewhere>
// ... and recreate the Bookmark object from the data
let existingBookmark = try Bookmark(bookmarkData: savedBookmarkData)

// Use the loaded bookmark
try existingBookmark.usingTargetURL { targetURL in
   // ...Do something with the targetURL...
}
