  1. File/Binary Data type within Realm Database

    Example:

    A new type could be defined, such as RealmFile. A RealmObject could have a RealmFile field or even a RealmList<RealmFile> field. Just like all other RealmObjects, this would simply be a proxy and wouldn't contain the actual file/binary data. To access or update the data in the RealmFile you would get an InputStream or OutputStream. Realm handles the rest in terms of syncing, caching, linking, etc. I know that Realm itself isn't really designed for arbitrarily large files, so the data contained in a RealmFile wouldn't necessarily need to be put into Realm. But it would be managed and…

  4. .NET MAUI Support

    .NET Maui is evolution of Xamarin.Forms. The former will replace later in second quarter of 2022, probably in April, 2022. The developer experience is going to be much better with Maui. Lots of the developers have already started experimenting with maui.
    Lack of support from Realm is a blocker for those who have already started to migrate their apps from Xamarin.Forms to Maui and for those who want to develop there new apps with Maui.

  5. Realm Trigger Event Projection should support exclusion

    Realm triggers with a projections must include "operationType": 1. This makes excluding fields impossible because, according to the documentation:

    if you exclude fields, you cannot also specify the inclusion of fields

    The only work around we have found is to list every single field in the database and this would require an update anytime we add another field to the model. This is quite cumbersome and should be easily resolved with a simple exclusion.

  7. Array types in generated GraphQL schema should follow JSON schema of a collection or custom type

    Hello!

    Realm generates GraphQL schema that does not reflect the exact JSON schema of a collection or custom type when it comes to array fields. Generated GraphQL schema allow arrays to contain NULLs even if this is not stated in JSON schema.

    For example, please see collection schema in the attachment. (Not able to insert JSON here in a readable manner)

    For this schema, I expect Realm to generate following GraphQL type for my collection:

    type MyCollection {
    _id: ObjectId!
    arrField: [String!]!
    }

    Please note the exclamation sign inside the square brackets. This states that the array item can only…

  8. Support for Xamarin.iOS Hot Restart

    One of the coolest Xamarin.iOS features is that you can hook your iOS device to the Windows and debug the application very quickly without having to connect it to the Mac and wait ages until the debugger starts up. Unfortunately, an app containing Realm .NET SDKs won't run with this mechanism and will raise an exception.
    I would really love to see this working. Considering most of the Xamarin apps I do are using Realm, it's a major productivity killer.

  9. Support parquetjs or parquetjs-lite dependencies

    Our product would like to read the parquet file-format from an S3 source. Both parquetjs and parquetjs-lite are incompatible with Realm's dependency upload.

    parquetjs: "boto" module is a duplicate of a top-level Realm default library.
    https://www.npmjs.com/package/parquetjs

    parquetjs-lite: Parse error when uploading tarball. See screenshot below.
    https://www.npmjs.com/package/parquetjs-lite

  10. Increase RealmReturn Body Max Size

    The maximum return body size of a realm webhook is 4MiB (4194304 bytes). That might seem enough for most applications but when dealing with massive amounts of data, e.g. timeseries data over years, that is a hard limitation.
    It requires the client to make many more requests that would be necessary.

    In our special case we want to return one whole year worth of data per request to make things easier for our clients (currently they can get 3 months).

    Given a 16MB Limit on a MongoDB Collection Document, this would seem like a sensable option for a limit if…

  11. Allow one-to-many relationships in Realm GraphQL

    Two collections A & B. One field say _id of collection A is the "foreign key" for a field say "field1" in collection B.

    A: {_id:1, k1:v1, k2:v2}

    B: {f1:1, x1:y1} //Values of field f1 correspond to values of _id in A
    B: {f1:1, x1:y2}

    For one value of _id in A, there can be multiple corresponding documents in B. If we create a relationship currently in Realm GraphQL, only one document is fetched. The expected result set is 2 documents.

    The current cumbersome workaround is to add an array field in collection A with all corresponding document IDs from…

  12. Passwordless authentication provider

    Passwordless logins are quite commons nowadays. Firebase supports "Login with email link" (https://firebase.google.com/docs/auth/web/email-link-auth). Would be nice to have the same in Realm.

  13. GraphiQL Description field

    I would like to add descriptions to improve the documentation of my GraphQL queries. When browsing the API through GraphiQL, all types and queries say "No description", so one could figure that this would be able to edit, but it's currently not possible (https://developer.mongodb.com/community/forums/t/add-description-to-custom-resolver/14227).

    It would be nice to have the possibility to add a "description" key in a custom resolver JSON schema, like suggested in the post above.

  14. GraphQL in Realm Functions

    It would be useful to have an integrated GraphQL client that is authenticated against the cluster available in Realm functions, to create stored queries and modify these in postprocessing in a Realm function.

  15. Re-Add support for querying LinkingObjects with GraphQL

    In RealmSwift, one can define LinkingObjects to refer to inverse M2O or M2M relationships. These are not supported by queries in MongoDB requiring to create custom resolvers. It would be very useful if these would be accessible in GraphQL.

  16. Improve Realm Web RBAC Granularity

    Currently, You need to be a "Project Owner" to view GraphQL configurations in Realm Web. I also need "Project Owner" to execute a schema validation. I would like to see more granular access controls for Realm Web similar to the granularity of MongoDB Atlas.

  17. Schema for Realm's JSON Files to Enable Auto-Completion

    This is a minor suggestion but it will be great if intellisense works for Realm-specific json files (i.e. "auth_providers/api-key.json", "services/mongodb-atlas/rules/db.collection.json", etc).

    It will be helpful for developers using the Ream's "Deploy with CLI/GitHub" feature (which is great). I guess it may help reduce confusions; for example ObjectId/ObjectID/objectId.

    VSCode has built-in support for JSON schema, and it seems additional schemas can be specified via three options: $schema in the file, VSCode settings or an extension.

  18. Complex Realm Querying (No Partitions)

    So there's currently an issue with Partitions where if you have multiple complex relationships, files that need to be in multiple partitions aren't accessible.

    Let's say you have a User Object and a Tribe Object.
    Each user has a list of tribes they are in, and each tribe has a list of users they are in.

    If you partition for each User, and User 1 and User 2 share a tribe, the User 2 partition will be unable to access the tribe.

    If you partition for Tribes, and Tribe 1 and Tribe 2 that share a User, one partition will…

  20. Support for updating nested fields in GraphQL mutations

    I want to do the equivalent of {$set: {"details.pm_stage": "...."}}

    export const UPDATEPROJECTDETAILS = gql

    updateOnePsproject(query: $query, set: {details: {pm_stage: $pmStage}}) {
    _id
    }
    }
    ;

    right now the whole "details" subdocument gets overridden
