Road Map

  • Normalised Db Design from JSON schema upload
  • Json Api, with CRUD and Relationships
  • OAuth Authentication, inbuilt jwt token generator (setups up secret itself)
  • Authorization based on a slightly modified linux FS permission model
  • Objects and action chains
  • State tracking using state machine
  • Data connectors -> Incoming/Outgoing data
  • Plugin system -> Grow the system according to your needs
  • Native support for different data types (geo location/time/colors/measurements)
  • Configurable intelligent Validation for data in the APIs
  • Pages/Sub-sites -> Create a sub-site for a target audience
  • Define events all around the system
  • Data conversion/exchange/transformations
  • Live editor for subsites - grapesjs
  • Store connectors for storing big files/subsites - rclone
  • Market place to allow plugins/extensions to be installed
  • Online entity designer
