New Weather API and Geolocation App Example

Posted: September 15th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: API | Tags: | Comments Off

Since we know developers love examples, we’ve just added one more! When you create a new app, you can base it on the new Weather API and Geolocation Example. When you create a new app, click “More Create Options” to see the list of available examples:

The example app demonstrates a number of features:

  1. How to use a 3rd part API – Weather Underground. You do need go sign up for a free developer account and set the API key.
  2. How to use the Geolocation service.
  3. How to handle different service responses (when an airport is found or not).
  4. How to show UI components on page based on a condition.

The app works in two modes. First, you can enter any 3-letter airport code to show the weather information:

Second, instead of using the airport code, you can also use the Geolocation service. It will determine your location and use that to show the weather information (for this to work in a web browser, make sure to allow location tracking for the domain appery.io):

Slide Panel App Example

Posted: September 9th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Features | Tags: | Comments Off

We just added a second template called Slide Panel App Example in addition to the Tabbed Pages App Example we published last week. When you create a new app, you can base the app on this template and use it a great starting point. The app has a Panel menu which slides from the left, and allows you to navigate to three pages. The Panel is configured via page templates. This simplifies app development as you need to make changes to navigation only in one place.
