? Adding AsyncCloudKit to Your Project

AsyncCloudKit is a Swift Package.
Add a dependency on AsyncCloudKit to your
Package.swift using
Xcode or the
Swift Package Manager. Optionally, specify a
version requirement.

dependencies: [
  .package(url: "https://github.com/chris-araman/AsyncCloudKit.git", from: "1.0.0")

Then resolve the dependency:

swift package resolve

To update to the latest AsyncCloudKit version compatible with your version requirement:

swift package update AsyncCloudKit

? Using AsyncCloudKit in Your Project

Swift concurrency allows you to process CloudKit records asynchronously, without writing a lot of boilerplate code involving
CKOperations and completion blocks.
Here, we perform a query on our
CKDatabase, then process the results
asynchronously. As each CKRecord is read from the
database, we print its name field.

import CloudKit
import AsyncCloudKit

func queryDueItems(database: CKDatabase, due: Date) async throws {
  for try await record in database
    .performQuery(ofType: "ToDoItem", where: NSPredicate(format: "due >= %@", due)) { (record: CKRecord) in


AsyncCloudKit functions that return an ACKSequence queue an operation immediately. Iterating
the sequence allows you to inspect the results of the operation. If you stop iterating the sequence early,
the operation may be cancelled.

Note that because the atBackgroundPriority functions are built on CKDatabase methods that do not provide means of
cancellation, they cannot be canceled. If you need operations to respond to requests for cooperative cancellation,
please use the publishers that do not have atBackgroundPriority in their names. You can still specify
by passing in a
