Developing an Recipe System on Ignition Edge (Lacks Database Connection)

I have Ignition Edge running on a standalone robot cell and I'm trying to develop a recipe system for it. Ignition Edge doesn't come with Database connections which is how I've always created recipe systems through.

Is there a Module for Edge that can give me database connections?
If not, does anyone have experience with using json files for creating a recipe system in ignition instead?

I have never used Edge but I think it should support memory tag arrays (or datasets). You could store the recipes in there. You might want to consider use of UDTs to make control of identical recipe structures somewhat easier.

Another idea is to use the file system of your os and store the recipe into files. maybe in json format.
