Entities ‚Äč

This npm package contains the (data) entities used across Qwiery. In particular, the message-passing mechanism of Qwiery Dashboards uses these entities to communicate.

The package can be found here and installed via

npm install @orbifold/entities

The GitHub repo is here.

Using these entities is straightforward and their power reside in the fact that they are used for drag-drop, for rendering, for communication and for storage. They are the backbone of Qwiery. The crucial property is the typeName defining the serialization type:


const ms = MessageFactory.fromAny({
    typeName: 'MarkdownMessage',
    text: 'Hello'

The NotebookCell is a special entity related to the rendering system and is used for terminal rendering, dashboards and literate programming.
