Best API for iOS Swift App

Posted 16 March 2016 - 10:03 AM

Hey all,
I am just starting to look into developing an app on iOS using swift, i have built many apps and web sites using VB.net before but this is the first time i have really looked into iOS.

I would like to build an app with DB connectivity, and i'm looking at API options at the moment.

The DB will be MySQL, and the app developed in Swift, i was looking at Loopback as the API layer but wanted to check to see if there were any better options, the documentation on the Loopback site all seems to be for Objective-C.

Is Loopback a good option, seems to be very easy to built the API out.


Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Well you can run objective-C along with swift in the same app so shouldn't be a problem there.

You really haven't told us much about what you are looking to do with the API (what type of project it is) so it is hard to recommend an API that would fit. Having said that, Loopback does appear to be extensive and you really won't know how good it is until you try it.
