Good morning gentlemen! You guys are early risers I see…
Web App / PWA only…
Thanks Ben, I may forget some things as I haven’t been in there for a couple months (been figuring out the ins and outs of Adalo) but a couple things would be…
The builder interface is also very user-friendly and thoughtless in a way, requiring little mental energy to build. (And that may just be because I was there first and running out of energy lol?.?.)
Some of the “components” & views are so easy to work with and include things like form options (timer, complete signature / stores image in db, maps use here maps to stay away from google / fees and have location detection, search within mile/radius, custom map markers, allowing custom filtering for users, resize images as they are uploaded with simple settings in the builder, “time functionality” (I have never received a reply to my posts about time clock functionality in Adalo) and several more
Setting access to pages / views is very simplified
Calendars are very advanced and easy to setup / customize and they just work
You can also embed any view anywhere and it remains whitelabeled to the user. Hides the company’s url etc…
Multilingual by selecting a dropdown…
You can copy / duplicate many different things like views / tables / forms / etc. Saving a ton of time and energy recreating.
There’s some more but I can’t remember them all without more coffee.
You guys are both awesome, one just advanced in one way and one in the other way…and “one” is catching up to the other in both ways, just not yet respectfully. (From what I see anyway)
If ever I could set 2 companies up on a date with the hopes of getting married, it would be you two
Thanks Victor! I’ll try to make sense here but again, I’m not experienced in this realm of things. I’ve always been too overwhelmed to really let it sink in… So bare with me
Yes, as mentioned I would be using it like I see many recommend… splitting up our Adalo app by using an external database to increase efficiency of our apps. As far as filtering and authentication I’m a rookie! In their developer docs there is this:
" The API is used to make requests to create, retrieve, update, or delete records that are stored in your Knack apps.
Requests are made for records from either a specific object in your app or a specific view on one of your pages.
Object-based requests require an API key and have full access to every field and record in your app.
View-based requests follow the rights and fields that were set up in the view, so no API key is required. For example, requesting records from a table view would only return fields for the columns that are included on that table.
All requests are authenticated via HTTP headers that need to be passed in with each request.
Note that you can make a maximum of 10 requests to the Knack API per second, while your plan will determine your daily API call limit. Read more about limits here."
LIke @Jamie I was using Knack before coming to Adalo and I have our entire app built over there too. I want to use portions of Knack tables and views to improve our app instantly while things evolve with further development of the Adalo platform. Our Knack app would be performing some of the tasks of our 105 screen Adalo app that will (hopefully) be used by thousands or more of businesses daily (like time clock management for example and/or storing of users data, images and other…).
Thanks much and please let me know if anyone can help me / us with this!!! Good day!
Update again for info to new users: Found that there is an in-app web browser! I read that the webview is better for viewing pdf’s?? But loading the Knack app worked using link > website > set advanced settings to use in-app browser. Nice! It loaded it in a new window though…how can we make this load in the app, like an in-app web browser???
If we can connect custom actions to put and get some data & open views from Knack in our Adalo app!! .
