How does Forest Admin work?

The magic of Forest lies in its architecture. Forest is divided into two main components:

  • The Forest Liana analyzes all your data model and generates the Back office API.

  • The Forest UI (web application), accessible from any browser, handles communication between the admin user and the database through the Back office API.

When you launch your Rails application, the Forest Liana sends a schema - the Forest UI Schema - to the Forest servers to initialize the UI.
