Hello Xamarin developers,
We are working on big project that our first goal is performance, so what's the best approach to implement these functionalities

  • We need to implement mobile database that will be symphonized with our REST API in order to use the mobile application even without internet connection (without azure). Would you recommend any approach?

  • What is the best way to work with SQLite in Xamarin Forms application (Entity framework core, Dapper …)?

    have you looked into Realm?

    I tried Realm not long ago.
    Since they abandoned the Community Edition version and it becomes paying :(
    It's a shame because it's a great solution.

    I am looking for an alternative, especially for synchronistation facilities and change management in the database.

    I used akavache for local database and cache i think that this is the best solution so you prevent direct contact with SQLite database and their problems instead of that you get more performance and faster than normal SQLite database so i think that is the best solution for cache or offline versions of apps.
