We have started new blog for our Developers – http://quickblox-developers.blogspot.com
It aims to help developers start use QuickBlox. How to use Push Notifications, how to create Chat application, how to integrate location based features into your applications – all here!
A lot of overviews, tips and tricks!
Let’s use it, let’s conquer developers world with QuickBlox!
Hi guys, we have great news for you – our Messages module has been updated.
Now it supports Rich Push Notifications! They allow to deliver media content e.g. images, video, html pages to your users.
How Rich Push Notifications work
Simply log in to your QuickBlox admin panel as usual, create an app or hit Messages icon next to an existing app:
Following QuickBlox server team (Custom Objects (Key Value store) backend API, admin panel and SDK released and CMS for your mobile apps – admin panel for Content management released) we have finished iOS SDK 1.2.0 version with next features implemented:
- Added Custom Objects API
- Added Content tags API
- Social API now returns social provider’s access token & token’s expiration date. No you can work with FB/Twitter API without fb/twitter sdk!
Use new superpowers in your apps!
Hi guys, we are excited to announce yet another feature released in QuickBlox which is visual stats.
Prior to this date QuickBlox fancied simple numerical stats which you could also export in CSV format and then build charts and diagrams in Excel. This obviously is not ideal when you want to quickly glance at how your application is doing (how many users, push notifications, check-ins etc) so we are happy to unveil new statistic interface which is nice and appealing.
Stats allows you to view general historical statistics of usage by your apps including:
- API calls
- Traffic in Mb
- Places (POIs via Location)
- Locations (that is check-ins)
- Notifications (push notifications)
We’ll be adding more metrics such as Chat messages etc soon. Please let us know if you have any specific metrics you want to see there.
Custom Objects is a QuickBlox module which allows developers to create their own data structure (classes and objects) and automatically get an API to store and manage the data using the structure they have created.
In three words, it’s a key – value store.
How to use Custom Objects
Simply log in to your QuickBlox admin panel as usual, create an app or hit Custom Objects icon next to an existing app:
When inside you can create Classes and Objects. Create as many as you like. So imagine you’re building a chat / dating app and need some data structure where your users can store notes about other users. You may create a new class and add fields of integer, string, boolean and float types:
Bang – you have created a new database table! It is now available through admin panel and as soon as your app adds data, you’ll be able to view, sort and edit. Your class is now available through API for your app to use. Simple as that.
