Announcing the Database HUB

Today we’re thrilled to share with you the newest Back4App Platform: The Database HUB. As part of our mission to help developers build apps faster HUB is a public database repository designed to help you to populate your App with ready-to-use data in record time. HUB, you can both connect to or clone a public database into an app on Back4App in only a few steps.

Designed for both new and existing applications, Database HUB helps users accelerate new application projects by two different methods. The first is cloning an existing public database(with data, functions, and files), while the second is completing your current app database by connecting to a public HUB database.
