Several months ago I mentioned an amazing open source project from Justin-Spahr Summers extending the functionality of Objective-C known as libextobjc.

Justin, who works at Github, has released another awesome open source project for Objective-C developers – a modeling framework called Mantle which should make for a great alternative to Core Data in many situations.

Mantle does a number of very cool things such as implementing many different NSCoding and NSCopying methods, and adds in numerous convenience methods allowing you to perform many useful functions such as return a JSON dictionary representing your object.

You can find the Mantle repository on Github here, and you can read further details on the Github blog.

Definitely an epic library – be sure to check the headers.
