Today, Bubble announced a major change in their pricing structure. Intended to make their pricing “more predictable and easier to understand”, the reality was clear to their community: Bubble is simply not scalable anymore.
Backendless Database now supports the JSON data type, a significant innovation that allows us to support both structured and unstructured data.
As soon as you have data in persistent storage, the question of searching would be one of the first to come up. Indeed, how can you query the backend for data? We considered multiple options and elected to use the most popular one – SQL.
Backendless can create tables when you store object hierarchies from a client application. Also, we described how to manually create data tables using Backendless Console.
One of the hidden gems packed with features is Backendless REST Console. It is a part of Backendless Console and is located in its own tab on the Data screen. The Console does exactly what it sounds like – lets you run REST requests against your data tables.
The REST Console is a part of the Backendless Console. It is a versatile interface that lets you perform a complete CRUD (Create, Retrieve, Update, Delete) set of operations on your data stored in Backendless using the REST interface.
