Syncing data

You can push data to a Nymbol collection via the Sync API. There are two ways to sync data, push and pull.

Push syncing

This is an active form of syncing, where you send instructions to Nymbol, via JSON. These instructions determine whether Nymbol should add, update or delete one or more records.

Pull syncing

This is a passive form of syncing. You supply data that is assumed to be a complete representation of the collection, and give Nymbol the URL to that data. It can be a static JSON file or dynamically-generated via PHP or similar, but it must be a complete representation of the collection, its objects and taxonomies (as obtained via the Export option), as any data not found in this file will be deleted from Nymbol.
