For my app, the items must be ordered (and that order is editable), and my app must be able to retrieve a subset of items, based on a search term. (The current app is at https://serenenotes.hominidsoftware.com/ if you want to take a look).
One possible approach to doing this with remotestorage is to hold all the items in memory, and do sorting and searching there. However, that does not necessarily scale to thousands of items. Also, before any items can be displayed, all items must be loaded and sorted. That makes for a slow app startup.
Are other approaches to ordering and searching possible? Are there any apps which do so?
