Planning the application
In this section, we’ll outline our plans for the toy application. As in “Basic Usage” Section, we’ll start by generating the application skeleton using the
trainjs new command.
Modeling demo users
Users of our demo app will have a unique integer identifier called
id, a publicly viewable
name (of type
string), and an
string) that will double as a username.
Modeling demo microposts
Microposts has only an
id and a
content field for the micropost’s text (of type
text). There’s an additional complication, though: we want to associate each micropost with a particular user; we’ll accomplish this by recording the
user_id of the owner of the post.
