    [forge-dev] iOS Scaffolding

    Sébastien Blanc Newbie

      Hi Folks !

       

      While I was watching Matzew's screencast[1] about using the AeroGear iOS

      Template (which bootstrap/help to create a new iOS project) I was thinking

      about pushing the concept even further.

       

      Wouldn't it be nice to be able to scaffold a complete CRUD Native iOS app ?

      And of course by using the bullets we already have  :  Forge.

       

      The idea would be to have the same stuff as the HTML5 Scaffolding

      plugin/addon but instead of generating JS and html files we generate *.h

      and *.m files (and of course a complete iOS app structure). The general

      workflow would stay the same : create a JEE project, generate entities,

      generate REST endpoints and scaffold the client.

       

      So basically all we would have to do is to write those templates (+ some

      code to write to the correct location / create the skeleton).

       

      I will be glad to start on this but I would need some help from the iOS

      gurus for one thing : having a clean iOS CRUD App  from which I could

      reverse engineer/extract the templates. This app, while staying simple,

      should contain all the possible use cases : String, numbers, boolean, Date

      but also some relation between entities  (1-to-1, 1-to-many) :

       

      I started with this simple idea :

       

      Team

       

      Player

       

      Tournament

       

       

       

      The gist is here https://gist.github.com/sebastienblanc/9074932

       

      So, if anyone would like to create this app, I could start from there with

      a first draft. I will also try on my side but my objective-c skills are not

      really good enough right now

       

      I think that could be a very cool feature.

       

      A last very important remark : you can reread this message and replace iOS

      with Android because once we got it shaped for iOS we could do exactly the

      same for Android.

          This sounds very interesting. Let us know how can we help in the Forge side.

            You would generate server and client side at once?

             

            The idea would be to have the same stuff as the HTML5 Scaffolding plugin/addon but instead of generating JS and html files we generate *.h and *.m files (and of course a complete iOS app structure). The general workflow would stay the same : create a JEE project, generate entities, generate REST endpoints and scaffold the client.

             

            So basically all we would have to do is to write those templates (+ some code to write to the correct location / create the skeleton).

             

             

            I would start with an app generated with iOS template for simple Pipe, and then add to it. See my questions below.

             

            I will be glad to start on this but I would need some help from the iOS gurus for one thing : having a clean iOS CRUD App  from which I could reverse engineer/extract the templates. This app, while staying simple, should contain all the possible use cases : String, numbers, boolean, Date but also some relation between entities  (1-to-1, 1-to-many) :

             

            With Pipes and Stores, we use more a Key/Value approach. Not sure what you have in mind to represent relation.

             

            In term of UI what do you want to see?

            first screen: Team TableView with static table cell, Players and Tournaments cell link to second screen TableView

            second screen: Player TableView with a list of player displaying only name, selecting a player will go to third screen Player details

            third screen: Player Details static table view with date display etc…

             

            Then we might need a descriptive/configurable way of saying to forge this is my main screen, on that list display ‘player name’ etc…

            What’s your view on that?

             

             

            I started with this simple idea :

            Team {

              name : String

              hasMany : Player

              hasMany: Tournamenent // many-to-many

            }

             

            Player {

            name : String

            dateOfBirth: Date

            injured: boolean

            hasOne : Team

            }

             

            Tournament {

            name: String

            price : number

            hasMany: Team

            }

             

             

             

            The gist is here https://gist.github.com/sebastienblanc/9074932

             

            So, if anyone would like to create this app, I could start from there with a first draft. I will also try on my side but my objective-c skills are not really good enough right now

             

            team work

             

             

            I think that could be a very cool feature.

            make sense
