How does Lumber work?

Before you start writing a single line of code, it’s a good idea to get an overview of how Forest works with Lumber. The magic of Forest lies in its architecture. Forest is divided into two main components:

  • The Forest Liana is an open-source plugin that analyzes all your data model and generates the Back office API.

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

When you launch your admin backend, the Forest Liana sends a schema - the Forest UI Schema - to Forest’s servers to initialize the UI.
