backendless kotlin1 150x150 - Using Kotlin for Cloud Code development with BackendlessBackendless Cloud Code officially supports Java, JavaScript and Codeless. Since Kotlin compiles to Java byte code, it is not an exception and can be used as well to build API Services, Event handlers and Timers. Check out an article by @vvsevolodovich describing how to configure your project so you can develop Cloud Code logic with Kotlin:

backendless stripe1 - Introducing Stripe Integration Plugin

We just published a new product into our Marketplace which enables integration with Stripe. The product name is Stripe Integration Plugin and its purpose is to handle card payments submissions to Stripe. The plugin runs in Backendless business logic (Cloud Code) and uses your Stripe’s app signing and secret keys when communicating with Stripe. Below is a list of functions performed by the plugin:

  • Submits charge transactions to Stripe from a secure server-side environment. This function is initiated by an API call into the plugin from your mobile/web app.
  • Receives transaction information and returns it to the mobile/web app.
  • Receives webhook calls from Stripe and stores information about your Stripe app events in the Backendless database.
  • Sends out a real-time message when a webhook is received. This allows your mobile/web app to inform the customer that a transaction is complete.

For additional information, see the Stripe Integration Plugin documentation.

With the release of Backendless 5.1.0 we introduced a new feature called Landing Pages. With this feature you can easily create a web presence for your app. There are templates for both pre-launch and released apps. Once you provide information about the app, which includes app description, list of features, some screenshots, customer quotes and contact information, Backendless will generate a beautiful web page with design adaptable for mobile and desktop browsing. The web page can also be accessible through the custom domain feature. Check out the video below for an overview and a demo of the feature:

For more information about the Landing Page feature, see the Developer documentation at:
