How to use Core Data's ManagedObjectModel inside a framework?


I'm a bit late for flohei's issue, but hopefully this helps anybody else who wanders by. It is possible to get this to work without having to perform script-fu to copy resources around!

By default Apple's Core Data template gives you something like this:

lazy var managedObjectModel: NSManagedObjectModel = {  let modelURL = NSBundle.mainBundle().URLForResource("MyCoreDataModel", withExtension: "momd")!  return NSManagedObjectModel(contentsOfURL: modelURL)!}()

That would load your Core Data resources out of the main bundle. The key thing here is: if the Core Data model is loaded in a framework, the .momd file is in that framework's bundle. So instead we just do this:

lazy var managedObjectModel: NSManagedObjectModel = {    let frameworkBundleIdentifier = "com.myorg.myframework"    let customKitBundle = NSBundle(identifier: frameworkBundleIdentifier)!    let modelURL = customKitBundle.URLForResource("MyCoreDataModel", withExtension: "momd")!    return NSManagedObjectModel(contentsOfURL: modelURL)!}()

That should get you up and running.

You need to drag the xcdatamodeld file and drop it in the Build Phases | Compile Sources for the targets that use the framework. Then when the target runs its [NSBundle mainBundle] will contain the model (momd file).


@Ric Santos was almost there. I think you just need to make it an "mom" extension rather than "momd", then it will run.

lazy var managedObjectModel: NSManagedObjectModel = {    let modelURL = NSBundle(forClass: self.dynamicType.self).URLForResource(self.dataModelName, withExtension: "mom")!    return NSManagedObjectModel(contentsOfURL: modelURL)!}()
