A set of easy and simple to use persistence property wrappers for storing and caching Swift Codable objects and images.


A set of easy and simple to use persistence property wrappers for for Codable objects .
Storage allows you to cache objects using universally unique identifiers (UUIDs) and also encode and decode into UserDefaults with the use of property wrappers.
Now supports CloudKit/CoreData storage.

CloudKit Storage

Creating Keys for Cloud property wrappers

/// A key for accessing a `CloudEntity`.
extension CloudKey {
    static var items: Self<Item> { .init() }

/// The location for cloud key lookup.
/// It must be an extension of `CloudContainer`
extension CloudContainer {
    var items: Set<Item> {
        get { self[.items] }
        set { self[.items] = newValue }
  • All objects that use Cloud property wrapper must conform to CloudEntity
  • Have a CoreData model name specified in the CloudContainer, which defaults to "BaseModel" with the static property CloudContainer.base
  • and have a CoreData model with name matching CloudContainer.name property
static let model = CloudContainer(named: "ItemModel")

Using keys to access Cloud property wrappers

// default
@Published var cloud: CloudContainer = .base
lazy var context = cloud.container.viewContext
@Cloud(\.items) var items: Set<Item>

// or custom model
@Published var cloud: CloudContainer = model
lazy var context = cloud.container.viewContext
@Cloud(\.items, container: cloud) var items: Set<Item>

Local Storage

Stating Conformance To AutoCodable

/// An object that will be encoded/decoded in default JSON format.
protocol JSONCodable: AutoCodable {}

extension JSONCodable {
    static var decoder: JSONDecoder { JSONDecoder() }
    static var encoder: JSONEncoder { JSONEncoder() }

Creating AutoCodable objects

/// An article in a newspaper.
struct Article: JSONCodable, Cacheable {
    var id: UUID /// id for conforming to `Cacheable` aka `Identifiable` & `AutoCodable`
    var author: String
    var title: String
    var body: String
    var timestamp: Date

/// Conformance to `Infallible` to make it easier to unwrap values from `UserDefaults`
/// (especially useful when  for offline testing.)
extension Article: Infallible {
    static var defaultValue: Article {
        Article(id: UUID(),
                author: "John Doe",
                title: "The story about nothing.",
                body: "...", timestamp: .distantPast)

/// A newspaper object.
/// Conforms to the `Cacheable` protocol
struct News: JSONCodable, Cacheable {
    var id: UUID
    var headline: String
    var articles: [Article]
    var timestamp: Date

extension News: Infallible {
    static var defaultValue: News {
        News(id: UUID(),
             headline: "Breaking News, Wow!",
             articles: [.defaultValue],
             timestamp: Article.defaultValue.timestamp

Initializing property wrappers

Codable property wrapper for UserDefaults

@Store("currentIssue") var news: News = .defaultValue
@Store.Set("allIssues") var issues: [News] = [.defaultValue]

Property wrapper for caching Codable objects

/// optional typealias for a static `Cache` with the associated type `Article`
typealias ArticleCache = Cache<Article> // ready for caching

/// Dynamic property wrapper
@ArticleCache var articles: [Article] = []

Creating an image cache that conforms to Codable

struct AvatarImage: SerializedImage, AutoCodable, Identifiable {
    var id: UUID = UUID()
    var image: UIImage?
    var timestamp: Date?
    var expiration: Date?
    /// Auto decoder for images
    static var decoder: ImageDecoder {
    /// Auto encoder for images with a Autoizable encoding strategy
    static var encoder: ImageEncoder {
        let encoder = ImageEncoder()
        encoder.encodingStrategy = .jpeg(0)
        return encoder

Then use it with any of the above property wrappers: Statically,

typealias AvatarCache = Cache<AvatarImage>

AvatarCache[id] = AvatarImage(id: id, image: image) // to set image with a `UUID`
AvatarCache[id] = nil // to remove image with corresponding `id`

or dynamically,

@AvatarCache var avatarCache: [AvatarImage] = []

avatarCache.append(AvatarImage(id: id, image: image)) // to append an image to the cache
avatarCache.remove(at: 0) // to remove an image at the first index
avatarCache = [] // to remove all
