Hook up your SQL DB no problems
I used this for a REST interface on my SQL DB, it creates all the services for you, so I was using stored procedures. You can do user management and role based access, there is a way to do record level access, looking into that. No problems so far its great.
Well done open source project
The DreamFactory project has been pleasant to work with. I first installed it on my Mac locally to try out connecting to a SQL Server database and that was easy (just followed one of their blog posts). It automatically generates a REST API for SQL that is nicely documented in the browser. Now our team will use the API to build a few mobile apps that use the data in SQL Server. Nice that we can deploy DreamFactory on OpenShift when we're ready to go live with our first few of apps.
This is the "killer" app for the mobile age!
Overall a Solid platform
So far Dreamfactory has been a good backend for our iOS/Android app. No major complaints really. The API and SDK's are pretty easy to figure out once you understand how they're laid out. The few times I got stuck their support was able to get me going again. Open source is a bonus too.
I just recently learned about this platform, but it wasn't until I downloaded the free trial and looked into it that I started to understand everything this platform does. The bottom line is it's saving me a ton of time, and I can connect to a db with a couple of clicks. It's one of those rare times where it really isn't all marketing hype, the darned thing really is that good. I'd honestly give their support group more than five stars if that were possible.
This is just what we needed
I cannot begin to tell you how long we have searched for something like this. You guys have literally saved our lives. Thank you so much for this wonderful platform!
Easy to install and use on my platform of my choice
We were one of the early adopters of the DreamFactory Services Platform after a bunch of discussions with our consultants. After considering a bunch of other options, we finally agreed on DSP primarily because of security. We do not need to trust an additional cloud provider - I was able to install on Amazon and connect my Azure account easily. We have not been disappointed. They have listened to our feedback and given us most of what we have asked for. Support is top notch and speedy. The roadmap looks promising. My team cannot wait for the next version to come out to integrate and release our app update. A big thank you to the DreamFactory team and good luck on the next version. Ken
Great Mobile Platform
we have been using DreamFactory for a few weeks, this is a great open source platform for mobile app dev. You can hook up any databases or other services, they create all the REST APIs for you. We are using the Angular SDK, all the other client platforms are also there but we haven't tried those yet.
