How to Store Data
You probably want to persist data in a database. Brev's built in database is great for simple applications, or you can fully configure your own database if your use case demands it. Brev's db is a key-value, nosql database. We highly recommend you check out this discussion about how to best utilize it in your application.
You can fully configure your own database, or use the built in Brev DB.
from global_storage import storage_context

from global_storage import storage_context def get(db=storage_context("my_items")): db[key] = value # store an item ...
