# Singleton pattern
xCRUD implements Singleton pattern, so it can be initialized in any part of the script as desired. It will not appear on the performance, because you will always work with a single original object xCRUD. You can pre-set parameters and output data in different parts of your script: in different functions, classes, or even in different files. This way, you can create custom settings for your specific set xCRUD (first, read the configuration file, most of the default settings can be done there).
xCRUD implements multi-instance system, which allows a single page load multiple instances xCRUD and work with multiple tables simultaneously. Regardless on how many copies, xCRUD open only one connection to your database, which is also significantly improves performance gains.
You can connect every instance to different database and work not only with different tables on the page, but also with multiple databases even on one page.
