Where to store big data that app requires

Forums > SwiftUI

Hi All,

I am building an app and i want a big list of items for poeple to pick from. Where would you suggest i store this list.

I have considered JSON and an external DB somewhere...

What would you suggest are the best options. Once the app is complete i can imagine this list being updated regularly.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Kind Regards



You can store on external databases (There are few of them) or with CloudKit as you may want to add to the list later.

If not could use JSON file in the bundle like in project Moonshot
