Realm LFS Azure

Realm LFS (large file storage) is an extension of the Realm.NET SDK that exposes an abstraction for interacting with binary files that are transparently uploaded to a 3rd party service (e.g. S3/Azure Blob Storage) and their URL is subsequently updated in the Realm object for other clients to consume.

This package supplies a RemoteStorageManager implementation for the Realm.LFS that uploads the files to Azure Blob Storage.


For the most part, just replace byte[] properties with FileData ones:

public class Recipe : RealmObject
    public string Name { get; set; }

    public string Summary { get; set; }

    public IList<Ingredient> Ingredients { get; set; }

    // Replace this
    public byte[] Photo { get; set; }

    // with this
    public FileData Photo { get; set; }

To initialize the SDK, the minimum configuration you need to do is to configure the remote manager factory:

var connectionString = "...";
LFSManager.Initialize(new LFSOptions
    RemoteManagerFactory = (config) => new AzureStorageManager(config, connectionString)

The FileData class can be constructed from a Stream - if you already have a byte[], that can be used to create a MemoryStream.

When displaying an image from a FileData, the code should look something like:

public void PopulateImage(Recipe recipe)
    switch (recipe.Photo.Status)
        case DataStatus.Local:
            var imagePath = recipe.Photo.LocalUrl;
            if (File.Exists(imagePath))
                // we are the device that created the image - display it from disk
                MyImage.ImageSource = new FileImageSource(imagePath);
                // this image was created on another device, but it hasn't uploaded it yet
                // to Blob Storage. Display a placeholder until the status changes to Remote
                MyImage.ImageSource = placeHolderImage;
        case DataStatus.Remote:
            MyImage.ImageSource = new ImageSource(recipe.Photo.Url);
