Resources are used to define an object within <form.io>. This is done by adding Form components to a Resource. Follow the same instructions for Forms when creating Resources. The Form components that are placed onto a Resource determine what the Resource object looks like. Once a resource has been created, it can then be used as a RESTful database within your application where new entities can be created, read, deleted, and queried like you would any other database collection.
For an in-depth explanation of how Resources work, please read the Forms and Resources guide.
