    by Richard Whitaker on

    DreamFactory and Bitnami responded VERY quickly; Dreamfactory support and I targeted the issue and together DreamFactory and Bitnami responded, produced the fix and posted up the new Bitnami stack. Today I installed and it worked beautifully. This is a great example of partnering and this mere mortal is grateful! Well Done! DreamFactory is exactly what I am looking for!

    Universal API

    by Jen Barker on

    Connect backend databases and it makes the API for you. The file API is a subset of NoSQL, which is a subset of SQL. Everything is the same in the subset. So you can swap out backend systems. And you only learn the one API.
