Metamug Console allows developers to create and manage their REST API backends, resource files and to make queries to the SQL database.
The console provides the developer with a set of tools and utilities to manage their REST APIs.
The Backends screen is used for creating new App Backend and also displays the details for existing Backends in an account if any.
The Resources screen enables uploading of Resource files and displays the list of uploaded files.
Adding Resources to Backend
A resource can be created in two ways
- Uploading XML file
- Create using text-editor
The resource creation buttons can be found on the top-right corner of the resources screen
The console provides a text-editor for creating/editing a resource file.
The Metamug Console provides an SQL Editor which allows the user to access and perform operations on the database connected to the backend.
The results of the query are displayed below the editor panel. After creating and setting up the database tables, the user can write the SQL queries to be executed on the database when a request is made to a particular resource, inside the resource file for the particular data resource. For more information please go through the Resource File section.
PL/SQL can be executed on the same editor by switching to PL/SQL Mode on the top right corner. Editor by default stores the last query executed. So data isn't lost when something goes wrong.
The Console related data like user-account, backend meta-data, resource meta-data is stored in an internal database. You can migrate this to your own database using this doc.
