We’ve added a new Twitter Login plug-in that allows users to log in to your Appery.io application with Twitter credentials. Check out our new tutorial to learn how to install the plug-in to your web or mobile app.
Check out our new tutorial that shows you how to add custom pop-ups to your Appery.io app. You can add error or success messages, custom notifications, prompt windows, and more — all by installing the SweetAlert2 module to your app.
Appery.io allows developers to create apps that support sign in with Apple ID. To add this feature to your application, you simply need to install and configure our new Login with Apple plug-in.
In our latest video, Alexander from the Appery.io team will walk you through the process of creating an event app. This application will use several plug-ins to search for the best places to party in a particular area and display them on an online map.
Please check out the new “Ionic 4 Secure Storage Plugin“ tutorial on our Appery.io channel. In this video, you will learn how to use the Appery.io Secure Storage Plugin to securely store data in your own mobile application.
Recently, many of our users have started receiving the “ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage” message when submitting their Appery.io projects to AppStore. This is connected with the fact that Apple is currently in the process of formal deprecating UIWebView and is migrating to WKWebView, UIWebView’s successor.
In this connection, we would like to update our users with the following instructions on how to avoid the issue with Apple submissions:
The workaround to apply for Ionic 4 apps:
- Set the following Cordova versions under the App settings > Android binary/iOS binary tabs:
2. Check if the default InAppBrowser 4.0.0 is enabled on the Core Cordova plugins tab:
Rebuild your app.
The workaround to apply for JQM or Ionic 1 apps:
- Under the Project > App Settings > Resources tab, select the latest Appery.io library version available:
3. Under the Project > App Settings > Core Cordova plugins tab, enable WKWebviewEngineAllowFileAccessPlugin:
4. Check that you don’t have edited files on the Source tab
Cordova WKWebView Engine and Cordova-plugin-ionic-webview plugin plugins may be unchecked if Cordova iOS 6.0.0. is selected.
Important note: please be informed, that this workaround might not work if your app is older that one year.
For the apps built earlier, switching to a different browser engine might be needed which might result in some other issues that should be considered separately in every particular case.
Also, we would like to remind you that you are always welcome to contact us if you have further questions about this or any other Appery.io related issue.
In software development, the four basic functions are represented by the acronym CRUD: Create, Read, Update, and Delete. These facilitate viewing, searching, and changing information. Every application requires the presence of such functions.
If you are up to building a responsive web application in the most cost-effective way, using the Appery.io Pizza sample can be very handy. The sample is a fully functional responsive application—based on Google’s Material Design—to present pizza recipes along with ingredients. It includes create, read, update and delete functions as well as searching and filtering. In terms of components, the application consists of:
- Appery.io plug-in
- Server-side script
In order to make it live, you need very little in the way of development skills. It takes literally five minutes for a citizen developer to assemble the application out of building blocks as described in https://docs.appery.io/docs/material-angularjs-app-plugin-example. To further perfect the application, you can add more spicy features to fit your tastes as listed in https://docs.appery.io/docs/samples-overview.
Voilà, the Pizza application is ready!
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and a digital payment system with 5.8 million users. In this blog post, you will learn how easy it is to build an Appery.io hybrid app to accept payments in bitcoins. It just takes a few simple steps to build the app and ready the payment ecosystem.
First, you need to get a merchant sandbox account on the BitPay server at https://test.bitpay.com/get-started. There are other payment servers, but BitPay currently is the largest and oldest bitcoin payment processor in the world, serving industry-leading merchants on six continents.
Next. You need to import a plug-in that will be the prebuilt (mostly prebuilt) client app. To do this, when the App Builder loads, choose the creation From Plugin option and check the BitPay App plug-in. (Learn more details about how to build an Ionic app in Appery.io.)
Then, you need to add one more piece to Appery.io, the BitPay Cordova plug-in. Go to https://github.com/bitpay/cordova-sdk and save this repository as a ZIP file. Upload this file to Appery.io to install this plug-in. (Please read this for more information about installing Cordova plug-ins into Appery.io.)
Next, Generate a BitPay API token with point-of-sale capability without client authentication at https://test.bitpay.com/api-tokens. With this done, get back to your app to set the token value. At this point, a distribution certificate should be associated with your app as described in https://docs.appery.io/docs/appexport-certificate-management.
Finally, as a customer making purchases with BitPay App, you need a bitcoin wallet installed on your phone. A bitcoin wallet is an app that lets you receive, hold, and spend bitcoins. This list shows bitcoin wallets supported by BitPay.
And, one more thing. After all of this is done, please make sure you switch to a merchant production account on the BitPay server at https://bitpay.com/get-started.
That’s all. Now your app is ready to take bitcoin payments.
