Why not just use didSet and willSet?

@jrg.developer Can you please help with this when you get a chance? Thank you - much appreciated! :]

You could accomplish a similar result by overriding these! However… :wink:

  • You’d write more code
  • You’d have to take care of one-to-many mappings yourself, including memory management (preventing strong-reference cycles, etc)
  • You’d have to worry about testing, maintaining, etc the above

When you have a first-party solution that’s provided for you already that does all of the above, why not just use it? :wink:
