Defining Our Models
Before we go into the implementation, we need to first define and understand the fields that we will be working with. We will cover two essential models: User and Recipe. Models are like schemas in the database. A model is a class and can be instantiated. It contains attributes that correspond to fields in database schemas.
The user model
The user model will be mapped to the user table in the database. The fields and methods we defined for our user model are as follows:
