Forest with Lumber

Last updated 4 months ago

Use Lumber to get started with Forest from any SQL database

Lumber is an open-source CLI that will enable you to use Forest Admin on any web app with an SQL database. This tool automatically generates a dedicated back office API for your web app.

To do this, Lumber first connects to your local database to analyze your Database Schema (in particular tables, attributes, relationships, constraints, etc.) and then generates a self-supporting Node.js application in which our Forest Liana agent is automatically installed.

The Forest Liana agent creates a back office API in your app which allows it to communicate with your Forest Admin interface.
