How Data Works in Remake


Remake works by converting HTML into JSON. That's the foundation for everything else it does.

  • Remake makes data inline editable
  • Handles updating data
  • Handles extracting data from the page
  • Handles calling the save endpoint
  • Handles saving to the database
  • Handles attaching the data to a user

Most other web app frameworks leave ALL of these steps to you.

How Remake stores data

Remake stores data in JSON files for each user.

It converts nested elements on the page into nested arrays and objects.

The only 3 data types Remake uses are:

  • Objects
  • Arrays
  • Strings
