I’m reading through the docs, and it seems as if we need to use properties when dealing with custom columns on our main Users table. We would like to use this User/BackendlessUser structure so we can get and retrieve custom columns (gender, etc) without having to have a different User-type object.
But it seems the only way to get or set these for the default BackendlessUser implementation is to get or provide a full list of properties each time. This seems like a bit of overhead of code, when it would be great to somehow add our own Swift-side fields and just access/retrieve them with direct access to the fields (and subsequently update the user after setting individual ones).
Are there any tricks to accomplishing this on the app side that you guys have seen, possibly utilizing an extension on BackendlessUser? If not, no worries, but just wanted to check, as this will greatly simplify code on the app side if there exists a solution out there.
