Main features and advantages of Realm
Realm was designed with performance in mind. It uses its own database, which has been optimized for mobile devices.
Realm can be easily scaled to work with large volumes of data, making it suitable for applications of any size.
Flexibility and ease of use
Realm has a simple and intuitive API, which makes it easy to use. In addition, it supports many platforms and programming languages.
Support for multiple platforms
Realm is available for all major mobile platforms, including iOS, Android, and Xamarin.
Best Practices for Working with Realm
Proper Data Structuring
The data should be structured according to the project's needs. It is necessary to use suitable data types and create indexes to accelerate queries, as well as to ensure proper data segmentation between objects, avoiding information duplication.
Working with Threads
Realm should be used in the thread it was created in. When necessary to work with Realm in different threads, it is required to create a new Realm instance in each thread and close Realm instances when they are no longer needed.
It is recommended to use lazy data loading where possible, and avoid excessive data normalization, as it can reduce performance. Also, avoid excessive use of transactions as they can lower performance.
Adding Error Handling
It is necessary to support error handling at all stages of interaction with Realm. This will help avoid unexpected situations and simplify application debugging.
It is necessary to test working with Realm under various conditions: with a large amount of data, in multithreading, when working offline. This will help identify and eliminate potential problems before the application is launched in production.
