Adding services

There is no single order in which you must build your project. However, as we learned in the previous chapter, types play an important role in projects, and project types come from the server. This means there is significant benefit to importing project services early in the creation of the application, as it enables us to use those service types to create type-specific forms and variables right away.


Try to minimize type iterations. While Studio will update existing typed components when you regenerate services with updated types, this is best avoided if possible. Studio is better at creating components of a type than updating component types. In the case of databases, this means finalizing your database schema as much as possible before importing it in order to avoid re-imports due to schema evolution. If you must make type updates, you might need to clear your browser cache or reload the project to get type updates to show.
