Data modeling is where we begin.
Data modeling is the fundamental function of Streams Core. The rest of the platform builds upon streams' data and structure.
The Streams platform leans heavily on domain-driven design (DDD). We call these domain abstractions
streams, hence our namesake.
An example could be configuring a domain model (a stream) for a website's pages, users of an application, or feedback submissions from a form. Anything anywhere can be defined by a stream.
If not configured otherwise, streams will utilize the built-in flat-file database. All databases available to Laravel are supported as well.
Domain entities are called
entries within the Streams platform. A stream also defines entry attributes, or fields, that dictate the entry's properties, data-casting, and more.
The Streams platform separates methods to retrieve and store entries from the entry objects themselves, less a few convenient functions like
delete, by using a repository pattern.
