Connecting to Postgresql or ODBC from iOS

Post by paulw » Wed Sep 19, 2018 11:49 am

I have a client who's just started down the route of having a new system built - it's Rails based, hosted on Heroku and is using PostgreSQL for the DB. They'd quite like a simple mobile app as well and as I just happen to have LiveCode available I was showing them what could be achieved in a short space of time. However, my simple demo didn't do anything complicated like connecting to their database. When I did add this I can get it working fine from the Desktop but then of course I found that neither PostgreSQL or ODBC (very much a last choice) are supported on iOS or Android.

Before I start down the route of setting up webservices to handle communication between my demo iOS app and his database is there an alternative? Or as this development isn't needed for a little while (new system is like 12 months away) is there any plans for PostgreSQL to be added to mobile support?

Thanks,
Paul
