App backend development
Backend code is the portion of an app that:
- Runs on a computer with a copy of an iModel
- Has access to the local file system
- Can use native libraries
See best practices for writing backend code.
App backends require the
@bentley/imodeljs-backend npm package.
The common packages will also be required.
These packages provide the following functions to support backend operations:
Working with Schemas and Elements in TypeScript
Loading and Creating Elements, ElementAspects, and Models
Dealing with Codes
For services and app backends:
Correlating backend operations with frontend Requests
Exposing the operations of the backend as RpcInterfaces
