Introducing Schema AI: Revolutionizing Database Design with AI-Powered Simplicity

by on November 30, 2023

We are thrilled to unveil a groundbreaking feature that is set to transform the way you design databases – welcome to “Schema AI”! At Backendless, we continually strive to innovate and streamline the app development process, making it more accessible and efficient. Schema AI is our latest step in this journey.

What is Schema AI?

Schema AI is a cutting-edge feature that allows you to describe the application you want to build using plain English and then watch as our intelligent AI system generates and proposes a database schema tailored to your needs. This proposed schema is visualized as a comprehensive entity relationship diagram detailing table names, columns, and the relationships between tables.

How Does It Work?

Simply type in a description of the application you’re envisioning. Schema AI interprets your description and creates a database schema aligning with your vision. The process doesn’t end here; you can refine your description, and the AI will adjust the schema accordingly, ensuring it perfectly matches your requirements.

Iterate Until Perfection

The power of Schema AI lies in its iterative approach. You can fine-tune your application description, and the AI will adapt the schema per the changes in the description. Once you’re completely satisfied with the proposed schema, just hit the “Create Database Tables” button, and voilà – your database structure will be created instantly.

A Look Back at Your Creative Journey

Understanding the evolution of your ideas is crucial. That’s why Schema AI maintains a history of your prompts and the corresponding schema diagrams. This allows you to revisit and understand the development of your database structure over time.

Integration with Existing Tables

If you’re working with an existing database, fear not. Schema AI can expand your current tables, adding new columns and establishing new relationships, ensuring a harmonious integration of the new schema.

Examples of Schema AI in Action

To give you a taste of what Schema AI can do, here are a few examples of prompts:

For a Bookstore App:

I need an app for a bookstore. It should have tables for books, authors, and customers. 
Books should be linked to authors, and there should be a record of purchases by customers. 
An author should have a name and bio.

Generated schema:

For a Task Management App:

Create a schema for a task management app with tables for tasks, users, and project assignments. 
Tasks should be assignable to users and linked to specific projects.

Generated schema:

For a Recipe Sharing Platform:

Design a database for a recipe-sharing platform. Include tables for recipes, 
chefs, and ingredients. Recipes should be connected to the chefs who created 
them and list the ingredients used in a recipe
