GSoC PMA week 3: Adding new Favourite Database feature.

I have completed my 3rd week of GSoC. My task for this week was to begin with a new feature which is to provide an option to users to mark databases as favorites. So that they can be easily accessed when ever required because sometimes the server has many databases and it becomes difficult to manage for the user. So the feature was intended to provide them a better experience while working.

The feature is very similar to the existing favorite table feature. My job was to replicate similar functionalities for databases.

The main problem was to update the database’s favorite status without reloading the page. For which I used ajax requests to send data to the backend and in return the json response was rendered in the frontend.

I had to add a controller which included functions to handle addition, removal and viewing of favorite databases. Finally the feature was complete the functionality worked fine.
