CRUD is a very well known acronym for software. It stands for Create, Read, Update, and Delete and they are the basic operations you need in any system that stores data.

“CUDLS” a better acronym?

When talking about user-interface, the “read” part is usually broken in two: list the records, and show a detailed view of each one. As far as I know, Rails popularized that convention, and several frameworks have adopted it.

So, this is a note for me, but it might be useful for others: let’s use “CUDLS” (cuddles?) as an acronym for that interface operations and let “CRUD” stand for the storage operations.
