Databases (beta)

Store data in your apps easily

Databases is a new beta feature that lets you store data in your apps easily. Hereโ€™s how it works:

  1. Create a Database:

    • Just type "/" and choose "Create a database" at the bottom of the "data" section.

    • You can also create a database directly from the dashboard or the dropdown menu in the builder.

    • Name your data store something you'll recognize, like "Feedback."

  2. Describe Your Data Usage:

    • Inside your project, describe how your app will use the data. You donโ€™t need to define a schema. Create will handle setting up tables and writing queries for you.

  3. Store and View Data:

    • When someone uses your app, their data is saved to your database.

    • You can view this data by going to the database you created.

  4. Use Across Projects:

    • You can use your data stores across different Create projects.

With Databases, you can create more powerful apps. For example, you can:

  • Store book recommendations

  • Create a clone of Hacker News where users can make posts
