Welcome to Backendless, a powerful API services platform. The platform can be used to build and run mobile and web applications. Backendless consists of built-in, general purpose API services and also supports deployment of custom, developer-defined services and functions. The built-in API services support common backend tasks and operations such as user login and logout, password recovery, data persistence, file upload, etc. Developer-defined services and functions can be used for custom server-side business logic. The diagram below illustrates major components of the Backendless architecture:


The sections below describe individual service APIs. It is recommended to go through the Setup section first to configure your environment.
