Scaffolding in Ruby on Rails and other frameworks provides an automatic way to make CRUD (create, read, update and delete) interfaces for working with a database entity.
Steve Derico has created SDScaffoldKit a library that will automatically create a set of CRUD views using UIKit based on your core data model. Simply supply the library with the entity you’d like to create the CRUD views for place the include view controller in a UINavigationController.
As the readme states:
UIKit can be tedious and repeative to build simple CRUD interfaces. SDScaffoldKit is a simple library that provides Create, Read, Update, and Delete views/viewcontrollers out-of-the-box. Just create your Core Data model, hand it your Entity’s name, a field to sort by, and BAM! You are ready to start creating and managing objects.
Here are some images illustrating some automatically created views:
You can find SDScaffoldKit on Github here.
Just like with a Rails project it’s highly unlikely you’d release an iOS app with some basic untouched scaffolding, but it provides a good starting point.
