Previously I mentioned the excellent Rack Core Data and AFIncrementalStore that make it easier to create RESTful web services that can sync your Core Data database.

Steve Derico has created a scaffolding kit that utilizes AFNetworking and AFIncrementalStore store along with the Heroku service to automatically create a cloud syncing mobile app using your Core Data model.

As the readme states:

Building an app that syncs its data in the cloud can be difficult. That’s where SDScaffoldSync comes into play. SDScaffoldSync creates a REST endpoint (via Heroku-Core-Data-Buildpack) and syncing code (via AFIncrementalStore) for you. SDScaffoldSync also leverages SDScaffoldKit to give you ready-made views for your model objects. Just create your Core Data model, hand SDScaffoldKit your Entity’s name, a field to sort by, and BAM! You you have a cloud syncing app.

And here’s a video showing how you can build a cloud syncing mobile app with SDScaffoldKit: 

You can find SDScaffoldSync on Github here.

Looks like a great framework if your app needs to sync with an online service.
