Data modeling is where we begin.
Data modeling is a fundamental aspect of building with the Streams platform.
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.
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.
