Data Sources


When a data source powers your app, you can continuously update your app contents without having to republish it. It allows you to build a dynamic app that can create, read, update, and delete data.

You can choose one of the following data sources:

Data Sources Blocks

To access the data sources blocks, you must first connect a data source. Then, by incorporating the data source blocks into your app, you can allow users to create, read, update, and delete data in your data source when they interact with the data viewer.
