Environment

A Cardstack environment is the context that Cards run in. By default, it contains:

  • an application that Cards render in
  • An API that receives requests from the front end, persists changes, and indexes data from external resources
  • An ephemeral data cache so that requests have speedy responses
  • Many data plugins for connecting to different kinds of data sources
  • UI interfaces for editing content
