If you have experience with AngularJS and would like to learn how to build an app with Backendless using that language, you can check out our previous series of articles:
In this article, as was the case with our Angular series, we will start by creating a new Backendless App and building a simple React app. Our demo app will be an Address Book app, so to get started we will show how to load and display some data from the server. In the future, we will modernize the application by adding more functionality.
Let’s get started!
For this series, we are developing an iOS game called “TapMe”. As TapMe is a multiplayer game, it provides registration for the new users and login for the existing ones. In this article, we are going to demonstrate how to handle user registration and login, as well as how to store a player’s information in the database.
The source code for the game is available in the author’s personal Github repo: https://github.com/olgadanylova/TapMe.git
In this article series, I’m going to show you how to use this additional JS module. There are will be a total of 3 articles:
Today, we get started with creating a simple Android application on React Native for receiving Push Notifications. Alright, let’s do it.
It is common for developers to build apps where users will have varying access to data and elements within the app based on the user’s role. Being able to limit user access is important to data security, user management, and often, the financial success of the application as user access is commonly tied to how much the user pays. In this article, we are going to show you how you can hide some object properties based on the user’s role. To accomplish this, we will be using Event Handlers.
An event handler is custom, server-side code that responds to an API event. For every API call, Backendless generates two types of events – “before” and “after”. The “before” event is fired before the default logic of the API implementation is executed and the “after” event is triggered right after the default API implementation logic. An event handler can respond to either one of these events. A synchronous (blocking) event handler participates in the API invocation chain and can modify the objects in the chain’s flow. For example, the “before” event handlers can modify arguments of the API calls, so the default logic gets the modified objects. Similarly, an “after” handler can modify the return value (or exception) so the client application that made the API request receives the modified value. For more about Event Handlers, you can read the documentation.
By the end of this guide, you will have a Backendless application with a custom API event handler that modifies objects received from a table and removes restricted properties based on the user’s role.
Amazon Elasticsearch Service (Amazon ES) is a service that can store a lot of data and provide a full text-based search, among other cool features. In this article, we’ll show you how to integrate Amazon ES with your Backendless project.
To save objects to the Amazon ES with Backendless you have to:
It is very easy to use Backendless with Xamarin, Microsoft’s open source native app builder. You can try out Xamarin for building apps for free with the Community edition of Visual Studio from Microsoft. In this post, we’re going to create a simple example based on the Xamarin ToDo list sample provided by Xamarin.
One of the most powerful features that Backendless 5 has available is the capability for you to implement your own License Manager for creating and checking licenses for your product/customers. In this article, we will touch on some Backendless services such as data management and Business Logic and we will use one of the Backendless Client SDKs.
Developing apps can be fun especially if you can do it without knowing how to write code. There is a lot of hype around the no-code and low-code trends, however, very few solutions can actually demonstrate successful examples. Here’s real proof of a mobile chat app built without any coding. The app is built using Dropsource and Backendless. Some companies will quote you thousands of dollars to built something similar, however, with the demonstrated approach, not only you can do it in a matter of hours using a beautiful UI builder right in the browser, you get the extreme scalability with the Backendless mobile backend. The video below demonstrates the app and walks you through the process of developing it:
