In the context of Boomla, agent means the user agent, typically a browser, identified by an agent cookie. If the agent cookie is not transmitted in subsequent calls, the requests are considered to be coming from different agents.
An app instance is a file that's type points to an app. Similar to a class instance in object oriented programming.

Components are the no-code equivalents of apps. It is used to create reusable elements or element structures, typically via drag-and-drop. A component wraps one or more app or component instances and optionally declares some input files to be defined at component instances.
For example, a page component may define a page layout to have a certain menu and footer, but the contents should not be the same on all pages (instances of that page component), rather defined individually.
Components are mostly implemented in kernel space but they require certain functionality to be defined in user space. These are defined in the component app.
The file type of components points to this component app.
A component instance is similar to an app instance but for components.
Component instances encapsulate the inner structure of the referenced components and present them as single objects. Only the input parameters of the component (input files) can be defined at the component instance level.

A fileNodeId is a unique identifier for a file within a volume. When a file is moved within the same volume, its fileNodeId won't change.
A filesystem is a tree of one or more volumes.
The filesystem interface version defines the filesystem schema and any additional behavior on how the Boomla OS shall treat the filesystem / website in context.
Each filesystem scope defines its own filesystem interface version.
The filesystem scope specifies the root file to be used for path resolution. Filesystem scopes are implicitly created by some of the file link types. Filesystem scopes always start at volume roots. A filesystem scope may be local or global.
Filesystem scopes are used within packages to resolve file links and file types correctly.
To follow a link is to get the linked file - if it exists.
It has the following variants: Owner Toolchain, Visitor Toolchain, Anonymous Toolchain.
In the context of Boomla, a hash is a unique identifier of an object.
The hash of a file is calculated from its properties, attributes, body and children. If a file changes, it will cause the hash of its parent file to be recalculated and so on upwards in the tree. This is called hash change propagation.
The IDE is an Integrated Development Environment which can be installed on any Boomla website as a package. It provides a filesystem navigation tool and an editor for code, file properties and file attributes.
..) of a package root file does not exist when respecting the filesystem scope. It does exist when the filesystem scope is ignored.

.Requestmethod is executed on the requested file. System defined methods start with an uppercase letter after the dot, user defined methods start with a lowercase letter after the dot.

Packages may use a central storage area within each website to store any package specific data. That's the package data store.

A package link is a file link mounting a package by its hash. The package link is a static link: the mounted subtree becomes part of the website and remains there even if the original package website is removed.

A path link is a reference to another file by an internal path. It is not automatically followed. Its only purpose is documenting the relationship between the two files. The path link is a dynamic link.
The Posix bridge is a 2-way mapping between the Boomla filesystem and Posix filesystems. Posix filesystems in this context include Windows, Mac and Linux filesystems.
The Posix bridge allows one to use programs that understand Posix filesystems to manipulate Boomla files.
If a branch is private, only its owner and users registered to the website can access it through a browser.
Note that registered users still don't have filesystem level access, unless explicitly granted by the owner.

A scope link mounts a writable volume that establishes a filesystem scope. The scope link is a transparent, static link.
Turn a package link into a scope link to make it editable. (This will also prevent the system from updating the package.)

A section is an input file container. Apps and components may define such sections to parameterize certain file inputs for their instances.
For example, page apps and page components will typically define at least one section for page contents. That way, users can drop contents in these sections on individual pages.
A section placeholder is used to define a section within a component.
Sections are mostly implemented in kernel space but they require certain functionality to be defined in user space, particularly for section placeholders. These are defined in the section placeholder app.
The file type of section placeholders points to the section placeholder app.
Automated changes like system updates are performed by the System account, also referred to as the System user depending on context.
.Request. System filenames can only be used if they are among the reserved filenames.
volumelink is a transparent link, while a

A volume link mounts a volume with no special properties except for being a separate fileNodeId space. It is a transparent, static link.The attached volume is also called a simple volume.
