Do you have built-in persistence or a database?

Yes! We have a persistent file system, so anything you store within your project is kept even after your container sleeps.


This means you can:

  • Use files as a flat file database
  • Save your database files locally, or
  • Use third-party storage services like a hosted MongoDB database or Redis.


See our storage app collection for examples.


We recommend creating a folder called .data as a safe place to store your data files. This folder isn't copied when a project is remixed.
