What is the Cozy-Stack?¶
The cozy-stack is the main backend server for the Cozy platform.
The Cozy-Stack is in charge of serving / running the applications users have installed on their Cozy.
It is in charge of:
- creating, updating, deleting documents inside the database;
- authenticating users and client applications;
- sending emails;
- launching jobs on the server. Connectors that import data from remote websites are jobs. Jobs can be one time tasks (sending a message) or periodic tasks. Jobs that require executing third party code on the server side (like connectors), are sandboxed;
- database replication API, allowing to sync documents between the server and local databases, for example in mobile clients.
Feel free to open an issue for questions and suggestions.
