GeoSpatial searches in Couchbase Lite

… unfortunately, this seems not to have made it to version 2.6 just released… :confounded:

It looks like you’ve found a good workaround here: Geo search on mobile

Well, yes - a workaround. But it still leaves a few things for my code to do subsequently (calculating distance and sort on that). Good thing is that it seem relatively fast - at least with the few small samples I have tried yet.

Sounds like you have the makings of an interesting, useful blog post! Maybe you could write something up and share it on hackernoon, devto, or your own personal site?

Geo-queries aren’t on our current development roadmap. I’m told that there doesn’t seem to be enough customer demand for them.

I’m curious why not? I know you may not be able to answer that, though…

One of the major facilities of a mobile is that it knows where you are… - and thus many interesting use cases where you would need to search for something related to a position…

I agree! I’m also confused why there haven’t been more requests for geo-queries.
