  • Tutorial: a basic course that introduces the main features of the Livebase platform through modeling, generation, use, and evolutionary maintenance of a simple example application. This guide is designed to give you a small appreciation of the power and speed of low-code model-driven development.

  • Modeling: a constantly updated reference guide that describes all the functions of the Designer, grouped by Schema.

  • Plugin development: a guide designed for developers that shows how to declare Handler in the classes of a Livebase model, and how to make the generated applications invoke some external application logic, freely written in the Java language, at specific events involving that class (e.g., creation or modification of an object).

  • API GraphQL: comprehensive reference to GraphQL services available for generated applications; illustrates differences with REST APIs and shows how to perform queries and mutations on Livebase’s GraphQL Schema.

  • Cloudlet management: contains guidance on how to set up the Cloudlet localization, a list of its properties and a section dedicated to REST services.

  • Database management: describes all aspects related to evolutionary maintenance of data through the Cloudlet; within this section you can also find a guide to learning how to import data from legacy management systems onto application databases generated with Livebase.
