ParcelKit

ParcelKit (via Clark Goble):

ParcelKit integrates Core Data with Dropbox using the Dropbox Datastore API.

Interesting idea, although it seems like for most data models you would need to layer on top your own conflict resolution (as with iCloud).

Hi Michael,

Thanks for posting about ParcelKit!

Conflict resolution is handled by the Dropbox Datastore API rather than ParcelKit itself.

@Jonathan Right. To me that says that if you need to do more than very basic model-specific conflict resolution you would need to add your own layer of code on top (maybe with parallel entities).
