OAuth 2.0 is becoming a popular alternative for application authentication. With Microsoft discontinuing Basic authentication and making OAuth 2.0 one of their new standards, many developers are sure to be in a situation where they need to change how they handle authentication for popular applications such as mailboxes, exchange services, and more. This article will briefly touch on OAuth 2.0, how it can be used, and an example of using it read mail from an Office 365 mailbox.

Developing applications in Linx follows common programming paradigms. This means that it will use variables, loops and if statements in a similar fashion to a traditional programming language. With this in mind, a recent update (6.4.1) introduced the Return function. The Return function is the new standard for returning values to the result of a function or to exit a function at any point. This post will go over what the Return function does and how it can be used.

There is an understated art to building good APIs – ones that are easy to integrate with, have high operational availability, offer readily attainable performance insights, and are easy to maintain. But if you have ever had to build an API from scratch, there is no denying that it is hard – and it gets much more complicated when you aim to deliver a quality API.

With APIs taking over, more people are asking: What can I use to create my API? Although there are many different API standards and types, we will primarily focus on REST APIs. An API can be as simple as a single endpoint with one purpose, or it can be much more complex, like the AWS APIs with 1000s of endpoints and 100s of thousands of users. What all of these APIs have in common is that they have to be developed. We like to classify the development of APIs in 3 phases: Design, Build and Host.

A common task for any IT department, or individual developer, is to move data from one location to another. A simple task to do once, but if this must be done many times for many different files (each with its own metadata, file type and data structure), it is a task that can become tedious. Luckily there are many low-code tools that can make this task much more manageable. As an example, Linx allows us to import a file and make the data available elsewhere quickly.

IT teams are always wanting to build new applications enabling specific functions for the ease of processes or customers. Sometimes, to balance projects, they allow distributed teams to work on focused targets using reusable assets, templates, and best practices. While decentralizing and democratizing application development helps, managing security can be a task for strategizing different Lines of Business (LoBs) and functional business partners. Enter microservices.

Building a file importer is not hard, but what if you can do it in an extremely short time. In this video, we build a file importer that reads a CSV file and makes the data available via REST API using the new Linx designer. Linx is a low-code development tool built for developers. Linx is a general-purpose platform that has no limitations on the technology it can connect to and uses visual abstractions of programming concepts to make building powerful and complex logic easy and maintainable.

Low-code platforms enable rapid delivery of business applications with a minimum of hand-coding and minimal upfront investment in setup, training, and deployment. Building a low-code app development platform consists of two developer-facing parts: This video looks at the history of low-code tools and how these two parts evolved separately before merging to create the low-code platforms of today. Part 1 of 4 of a webinar hosted by Linx and the University of Leicester.

See Linx as we discuss low-code and APIs with Bill Doerfeild from Nordic APIs. What is low-code development? What is its relationship with APIs? How do we bridge the low-code and pro-code divide? At this LiveCast, we’ll be investigating the intersection between APIs and low-code. In this event, Dawie Botes, Head of Customer Success at Linx, demonstrates how developer-focused low-code tools can help to rapidly construct microservices.
