Core Data Editor 5

By Christian Kienle

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Core Data Editor lets you easily view, edit and analyze applications‘ data. Core Data Editor is compatible with Mac and iOS applications and supports XML, SQLite and binary stores, visualizes all relationships and is able to edit the data and generate Objective-C code for the data model.

Core Data Editor makes it easy to analyze Mac and iOS application‘s data. Just drop a set of application and a persistent store file on it and let it do its magic. Within seconds you have all XML, SQLite or binary data at hand and can analyze it. Need to know relationships? No problem – just double-click any entry and instantly see all relationships of the corresponding entry. Relationships of relationships of relationships – you get the idea.

But that's not all: As the name suggests you can also edit all data – just add or change entries. Core Data Editor also visualizes binary data to allow you having a look at e.g. pictures or other media. Handy, isn‘t it?

Now that you know about the data model, the data itself and the relationships, you might want to make your coding work more effective? Instead of now manually writing the code, Core Data Editor has a more effective approach: It generates the code for you. Yes, real-world Objective-C code you can really use! Using "mogenerator" by Jonathan 'Wolf' Rentzsch, Core Data Editor generates "two classes per entity: one for machines, one for humans. The machine class can always be overwritten to match the data model, with humans' work effortlessly preserved" (mogenerator website).

Working with Core Data? Working with complex object models? Working with complex delete rules? Working with a lot of data? You want Core Data Editor.

Customer Reviews

Good Start - needs more polish

Good to see some Core Data visualizers - there are bugs. Sometimes entities are not visible on the screen - clickable, but not visible in the table.
It would be nice if the tool tried to track iPhone Simulator bundles as xcode moves it around on disk. It's a drag updating the paths over and over.

Would be nice if it were live as well - it didn't seem to update. Perhaps an SDK that the iPhone project could include in my application would help message events?

OK but, Crashes & No Support

For the most part it works pretty well, but anytime I try to open the Project Browser it crashes. I’ve sent multiple emails to the developer over the past week and have received no response
