Hi all 🙋
I was wondering if there is some doc about the whole architecture of / or the magic underlying Glide (even though, yeah, you never reveal the magic, it breaks the charm)?
From my POV, looks like the table column data is the smallest item from which everything is related. So we need to think every app focusing on it to determine the limits, hence the feasibility as well as viability + evolutivity + maintenability.
When I used to work with BI software Oracle Hyperion, it was fascinating to understand how “cubes” work. Because once you get it, you can articulate the rest, and “make educated guess” in archiving, growth, performance issues. But with BI, UI/UX: who cares?
With Glide, UI/UX matter a lot.
And knowing about its architecture can help design thinking the right way.
And communicate with users/customers with more transparency & less pitfalls about the do’s and don’t.
And I always prefer to know how sth can be changed, deleted, reverted in the safest and smartest way. With no trash or ghost files wandering anywhere in some lost forsaken forgotten forever inaccessible places.
Well Best Practices.
Thks for your insights.
I believe it matters to create Glide apps properly. With anticipation and a clear view of the big picture.
