The app is based on two fundamental components: Collections and Documents.

A Collection, an analogue term to table or database, is a container defined by a list of fields. A collection contains Documents.

A Document, an analogue term to row or record, is an object that has one or more values.

If you don't have any database knowledge, you can imagine a collection as a folder, and a document as a file.


A Field, an analogue term to column, represents the type of data such as text, number, date, and so on.

To keep data organized, each document in a collection uses the same pre-defined fields.


If you want to organize your books, Books is a collection containing all your books. Books is defined by the following fields: Name, Authors, Genre, Publisher and Published date.

A single Book is a document that stores Name (Harry Potter), Authors (J. K. Rowling), Genre (Fantasy) and so on.
