In this post, we continue our mission to build a restaurant to-go order app. So far we have put together UI mockups for the future Backendless application, and designed data schema for all the application’s data entities. At this point, we are very close to the coding part.
In another article, we described how to load complex data objects from the persistent storage using the “auto-load” technique. Using that approach, a developer can statically identify specific (child) properties that should be returned along with the parent object(s) when a client app sends a request to load them.
In another post, we describe how to add columns/properties to a Backendless table/class using Backendless Console. The types of properties reviewed in that post were all primitive: string, numbers, dates or boolean values. In addition to these data types, Backendless also supports relationships between objects stored in its persistent storage.
Previously we showed how to declare relationships between tables. Once a relationship is in place, specific objects stored in the tables may be linked with each other.
Another post covered how to retrieve data objects from Backendless. The code in that article loads a collection of the Restaurant objects and although it does not show it, the related collection of the Location objects arrives un-initialized. That is the default behavior of Backendless Database when it comes to loading related objects. The code…
In 2019, the BackendlessDataCollection class was added to Swift-SDK. This class conforms to the Collection protocol and allows you to retrieve and iterate over a collection of objects stored in a Backendless data table.
Introduction We’re all looking to streamline app development. Backend development in particular is a clear point where efficiency is key because improper code can slow down you app and affect all users equally. One of the best ways to speed up backend development without risking creating problematic code is…
In this edition of the Backendless Spotlight, we take a look at a yoga application startup that uses motion tracking and data to guide its users. Zenia acts as a virtual yoga instructor that can analyze your movements to help you improve your form and maximize your yoga sessions.
In Part 2 of our series, we are going to continue design backend for our Social App. So, the task for today is to implement such parts as Likes and Comments. You will see how easily you can reach this by using Backendless.
