Getting Started with Collections
DrapCode not only helps you build a no code front end but also offers you a no code inbuilt database for your web applications through collections, in which data can be stored manually as well as dynamically.
1. Advantages of Collections
Collection dynamically sends and fetches data from the backend of another device or application to your web app's database.
You can do Data Calculation, Data Manipulation, Computations, Queries, Filtering etc., operations on the data once it's available in collections.
A collection can store a large amount of data in a well-organised format like an excel sheet.
Just an insight: Collections can store much more than excel sheets do.
2. Supported Field Types
In DrapCode, you can create custom collections by adding different fields according to the type of data you will add to them. Below are some common field types to give you a glimpse of what the builder offers you:
This field type is used to store data in the text or string format such as Name, Email, Address, Phone No. etc.
This field type is used to store data in the number format such as Amount, Age, Dimensions, Latitude/Longitude etc.
This field type is used to store data in the Date or Date & Time format such as Date Of Birth, Account Creation Date, Company Incorporation Date etc.
This field type is used to store data in the Boolean format that has two predefined values to select from i.e. True or False such as Is Married, Is Student, Is Eligible etc.
This field type is used to store image files such as Profile Image, Logo, Gallery Photos etc. and files format such as PDF Files, Zip Files, Document, Excel Sheet, Text File etc.
This field type is used to store data that references to another collection field of the same project.
This field type is used to store password data in an encrypted format, for example, User Login Password etc.
