App storage data example:
Each data entry is stored as a pair: a key and its value. You can get a specific value right away by checking a corresponding key. It is available for both embeddable and storefront apps. You can also retrieve public app configuration (user preferences, etc.) saved in the application storage when your app works in storefront. Learn more
The storage of each app is isolated from other apps, so user data of your application is not available to other apps and vice versa.
Ecwid API has got you covered on two main aspects of developing client-side applications: private data can be stored securely on Ecwid servers and all the hosting for that data is provided by Ecwid as well. This allows for a secure and fast storage for your application’s needs.
Sometimes server-side applications need to store user’s data as well as the client-side ones. Usually developers create mySQL or PostgreSQL databases or store data locally on a file system. Application storage offers an alternative - store data on Ecwid servers and access it using REST API. Why it can be helpful: now there is no need for mySQL databases, your code becomes simpler and you don’t have to worry about storing the private merchant data on your servers.
