Is DreamFactory's native MySQL database easy to use?


#1

DreamFactory comes with a built-in MySQL database and a comprehensive set of RESTful schema and data services for that database.

But we are keenly aware that SQL can be cumbersome, so we have many features that make using SQL access easier than ever, especially from JavaScript. Use the Admin Console to set up your data objects and relationships. Then look at the live REST API and try a few transactions. You’ll see that it’s pretty easy.

Right now, we also provide REST access to remote SQL schema and data (i.e. your own SQL database). We’ll add the ability to manage remote SQL schema and data in the Admin Console UI later this year (in the summer 2014 timeframe).
