Lime ORM for Android

Hey friends. I wanted to let everyone know I've released a little library called Lime for Android. It's an ORM layer inspired by Microsoft's Entity Framework. I feel it has a few advantages over some of the other layers out there.

  • It's fast. Lime uses reflection to populate objects from cursors, but object inspection is done only once and cached. 
  • It's efficient. Lists of objects are backed by cursors so scrolling through huge data sets only requires conservative memory allocation. 
  • It's flexible. Most layers in Lime are exposed to make using as much or as little as necessary a simple matter of choice. 
  • It's familiar. Lime works with Android's content providers, observers, and loaders. It's all the things you already know, but easier. 
Stop by the Lime site on Bitbucket and take it for a spin. I think you'll dig it.
