MySQL and Swift

Hello, I wanna create an App that will use data in MySQL database. Is it possible to manipulate with database with MySQL commands in Swift (like in PHP) instead of using JSON to communicate with database? It has to be better to download exactly what you want and then store it, instead of download everything by JSON and filter it in Swift... I'm beginner BTW so I would appreciate any ideas how to solve this problem ;) thanks

I think you want to use core data, Treehouse has a course on it here, but it is in Obj-C.
