    In native iOS, most people use Kingfisher, and i'd love to have something as good as that on our RN app. Perhaps just some pure JS library that you could plug on the existing image component, and that would handle the saving-to-disk and fetching of the image?

    Make sure the proper target is selected in the Add to target in the dialog as shown above, then click Add Package button. The package should successfully be added to your project. Now following the same process, this time search for the Kingfisher package using the GitHub URL as the following https://github.com/onevcat/Kingfisher.

  • How do you handle fetching data from REST API and caching?
    3 projects | /r/SwiftUI | 31 May 2021
    Image loading, displaying and caching is a very similar problem and it seems there are some pretty good solutions available (e.g. Kingfisher), so I'm quite surprised that I'm struggling to find a popular/reliable/stable solution for (REST) API data.

  • Good remote Image caching strategy?
    2 projects | /r/SwiftUI | 28 May 2022
    I have a vertical scroll view with multiple horizontal scroll views with in all with similar thumbnails and detail view when clicked on it similar to you. I used lazy stacks and the web image package and it works amazing. I used to use cached Async image thinking it was better but recently swapped to webimage and was blown away how well it worked. Also you can use gifs with it cause it’s great (if that’s something that floats your boat) here is url https://github.com/SDWebImage/SDWebImageSwiftUI
