The perfect place to manage your entities

Imagine, you want the user to be able to say:

  • I want a pizza with pepperoni
  • I want a pizza with vegetables
  • I want a pizza with chicken

Now imagine that you have 100+ toppings, it would be a waste of time and energy to create all the possible combinations by hand. Especially if you also want to use combination of multiple entities.

Now, with entities, you can do that in one line:
*I want a pizza with {toppings}*

You can create your own entities with many elements.
