Today we are going to talk about a very valuable feature available for Managed Backendless and Backendless PRO users called Low Priority Tasks. In this article, we’ll look at how it works and what is it best used for.
Backendless custom business logic (custom event handlers and custom API services) tasks are put into a single queue and executed by a dedicated service called CodeRunner. In Backendless Cloud, these tasks do not have any kind of priority and are executed according to the task’s position in the queue. But there are cases when the CodeRunner queue is spammed with “heavy” requests which take 10 or even 20 seconds to execute, i.e. getting hundreds or even thousands of records with multiple relations, utility requests to delete thousands outdated records in a table, etc.
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:
What does “mobile-to-web cross login with a QR code” mean ? It is one of the approaches for the two-factor authentication. Suppose that a user is already authenticated in your application (in my example it would be an android app) and the user wants to use it’s actual session to perform an automatic authentication in another application (in my case it’s a web app). There are several examples of popular apps which use this approach. For example, to login into a web session with WhatsАpp, you must login on your phone and then scan a QR code in the web interface.
An example we will build a trip planner skill, albeit a trivialized version of it, which will gather from the user the departure date, the departure and arrival cities. The collected information can be used to search available fares, hotels and make any other necessary arrangements.
What You Will Need
Today we will talk about how to monitor client’s Real-Time Connections in your Angular application. This tutorial continues the guide on how to build Angular apps with Backendless. It is recommended to check out the previous article in this series before you continue for the reason that we will use the application from the previous post as the starting point for this tutorial. Alternatively, if you just want to start working with the it right away, just download the source code from this GitHub commit.
In many cases we want to see how many application users are online or offline, for example, it might be useful in a chat application. For the demo purposes, in our application we will add a simple counter for count all connected clients. As we explore adding that functionality, you will meet with Backendless Business Logic, Backendless Counters, Codeless and keep discovering Real-Time features:
Great news, guys! Backendless 5 is now released and it’s time to show you some new features we’ve been working on. In this article we will talk about how to integrate the Backendless Real-Time Database into your Angular application. Meanwhile, you can check out the previous version of our Angular app in this post. In case you haven’t read the post and don’t have that app yet, please review the previous article, because we will use that application as a starting point for this tutorial. Or, if you just want to start working with the it right away, just download the source code from this GitHub commit.
