Integration of Todoist and MongoDB Realm


Todoist is a task management software application. It is designed to help people get things done. Todoist allows users to create tasks, organize them into projects, assign dates and due dates, add notes, delegate tasks to others and more. The app has over 9 million users worldwide. Todoist can be accessed from personal computers, mobile apps for Android, iOS, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone, or via their website. (

MongoDB Realm

MongoDB is a distributed document-oriented database program. MongoDB is open source and free to use. MongoDB is a schema-free database, enabling users to store data in JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas that make it easy to add new fields without having to alter the structure of existing documents. MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents, rather than traditional table structures, so you can easily insert JSON documents into your databases. MongoDB uses a document-oriented approach to storing data; this means that each piece of information is stored in a self-contained structure that includes the data itself, plus additional information about how the data should be processed.

Integration of Todoist and MongoDB Realm

This section will provide details on how Todoist can be integrated with our own application Realm by adding properties and methods to save, update and delete data. The focus is on adding Realm’s persistence capabilities while leveraging its thread safety and performance. For this reason we will only need to add two lines of code to start using the Realm library:

//add the Realm library to our project //and implement the Realm manager protocp to bind a model class to the Realm file let realm = try! Realm(. class Todo . RLMObject { //... } //add the fplowing line at the end of the Todo class definition override class func primaryKey(. -> String? { return "id" } 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 //add the Realm library to our project //and implement the Realm manager protocp to bind a model class to the Realm file let realm = try ! Realm ( . class Todo . RLMObject { //... } //add the fplowing line at the end of the Todo class definition override class func primaryKey ( . -> String ? { return "id" }

This makes it possible to use the Realm library in our application and bind it with a model class. The highlighted line in the above code snippet is important because it tells the library how to handle object updates and deletions (by updating and deleting specific objects. which are handled by the Realm framework. A simple example of how a model class can be saved would look like this:

//try adding a new task into our list let newTask = Task(description:"Buy milk", date. Date(), priority. .normal. try! realm.write { realm.add(newTask. } 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 //try adding a new task into our list let newTask = Task ( description . "Buy milk" , date . Date ( . , priority . . normal . try ! realm . write { realm . add ( newTask . }

The above code adds a new task into our list using the Realm library and then saves it using the write method available from Realm’s core class. When writing data into Realm, you can use either synchronous or asynchronous transactions; here we have used an asynchronous transaction which returns immediately after adding the new task into Realm’s persistent store. When using asynchronous transactions, if something goes wrong inside the write block such as an error or an exception being thrown then an error will be thrown immediately after returning from the write call (instead of waiting for the write transaction to complete. If everything goes well then after calling write, we check if an error occurred inside the write block by checking if it was nil; if no error was thrown then we know that our operation succeeded and we don’t need to do anything else. Important. When working with asynchronous transactions you must always remember to handle errors that may occur in case something goes wrong inside a write block! If not, an application crash will occur when an error occurs inside a write block because there will be nothing in place to handle any errors that may occur!

We also have other methods available from Realm’s core class such as deleteAll or deleteAllObjects which remove all objects from our database along with their relationships and attributes; findAll which can be used to find all objects from our database based on certain conditions; findAllSorted which works similarly as findAll but sorts the results alphabetically; reloadAll which reloads all objects from our database; refresh which reloads all objects from our database without removing any existing data; etc. To learn more about these methods please visit It is important to note that when using asynchronous transactions you must always remember that they do not persist changes automatically! You must always explicitly call one of Realm’s persistence methods before performing a different operation on your database or else no changes will actually be persisted! It is also worth noting that when adding objects into Realm’s persistent store you can pass optional parameters such as the object’s primary key or whether you want objects to be sorted based on their primary keys or not; in our example we did not specify any special parameter so Realm used default values for new objects added into its persistent store which means that objects are not sorted alphabetically by default and their primary keys are ignored as well (the primary key for each new object being added gets created automatically by the library. For more information regarding these options please visit LMObject-class.html#primaryKey%28%29. If you want to use Realm’s synchronization capabilities then you should read this excellent guide written by Realm themselves here http://realm.ioews/how-to-use-asynchronous-transactions/. In order to use synchronous transactions instead of asynchronous transactions then you simply need to replace the async keyword with sync inside a write block and use a regular try statement instead of using try!. However please note that for most cases asynchronous transactions are preferred because they have better performance than synchronous transactions because in synchronous transactions multiple threads simultaneously access shared memory which causes scalability issues whereas in asynchronous transactions only one thread accesses memory at a time which does not cause any scalability issues at all. In order to use synchronous transactions you must import this declaration file into your project. This version of Realm was designed specifically for iOS developers who wish to use synchronous transactions instead of asynchronous ones however we will not be covering this file here since we are focusing primarily on MongoDB Realm integration with MongoDB so it is easier for us to work with asynchronous transactions only. Nevertheless you may find this file useful if you wish to use synchronous transactions only instead of asynchronous ones so you should take some time out and check this file out if you haven’t already. There are many other useful methods available from Realm’s core class such as insertAll which inserts multiple objects into our database; updateAll or updateAllObjects which updates all objects from our database or just updates specific fields from our database depending on the condition specified; etc but I won’t go into details about them here since I am trying not to overwhelm you with all of this information at once so feel free to experiment and explore on your own later on so that you can learn more about what else is possible using this library! Now let us move on and see how we can use MongoDB Realms integration capabilities in order to save, update and delete data from MongoDB realms by making use of its documentId property which makes it possible for us to identify each document uniquely based on its objectId attribute value:

//try updating an existing task let updatedTask = Task(description:"Buy milk", date. Date(), priority. .normal. try! realm.write { realm.update(updatedTask. } let updatedTaskPrimaryKey = updatedTask!.objectId //try deleting an existing task let deletedTask
