Want to make data management in your SwiftUI app a breeze? Look no further!

Core Data is a powerful framework that allows developers to easily manage and persist data in their iOS, macOS, and watchOS apps. It’s a great choice for data storage and retrieval in SwiftUI apps, as it provides a convenient way to manage and manipulate data without having to worry about low-level details such as SQLite queries.

In this article, we will go through the steps of integrating Core Data with a SwiftUI app, including creating a new Core Data model, creating a Core Data stack, and using Core Data in a SwiftUI view.

Create a new Core Data model

The first step in integrating Core Data with your SwiftUI app is to create a new Core Data model. This can be done by going to File → New → File, and selecting “Data Model” under the “Core Data” section. Give the model a name and add the entities and attributes you want to use in your app.
