NEW FEATURE: You can now duplicate webapp items!

This Webapp Utilities App is an extension for partners and developers developing websites using Business Catalyst and looking to save time on a number of features and also expand on the abilities of web apps.

This App supports the new pay once use many feature of the BC App Store. A single purchase for a partner will allow them to install this app and use on all their websites. This is a great feature for utility based tools such as this app. s This is one of a number in a series of apps from us that offer great uilitiy functionality to BC.

Feature 1: Webapp Export

You can very easily Export both the webapp and the custom fields of a webapp. Through this process you are offered 2 downloads. One CSV file for your webapp and a second CSV file for your custom fields.

All the processes in this app support a CSV file for easy saving and management and through offering separate CSV files for the webapp and its custom fields allows a developer great flexibility in their apps and options to manage between their websites.

Feature 2: Webapp Import

With a webapp CSV to hand you can simply import into this app and it will generate your webapp. Not only can you export and import webapps, through the CSV method using examples and templates provided you can create your webapps through CSV. As a developer you could create and modify webapps through spreadsheets and simply import them into your websites... Even faster then creating them in the admin.

Feature 3: Webapp Custom Fields Import

As with the webapp CSV, with a custom fields CSV you can select which webapp you would like to import to and import the CSV of custom fields. It is that easy. Through this method you have a lot of options. You could form a number of CSV files of set custom fields for your projects and simply import these into a variety of webapps.

Feature 4: Quick Delete Custom Fields

Managing custom fields within the admin can be quite slow for the busy developer. Through this part of the app you can simply select the webapp you wish to manage and very easily select the fields you wish to delete. Great for large webapps you wish to manage

Feature 4: Webapps to JSON

This comes in two parts: You can choose any webapp and convert ALL its webapp items into a single JSON file. This is great to use for either Ajax implementations or to use for module_json use. This is a great way to get around the 500 limit that plagues many developers implementing certain solutions. This is a static JSON file, every time there changes to a webapp you will need to run an update to the JSON file but for many use cases this is a great option.

The second aspect is an easy JSON file manager, you can view all the JSON files that have been created and also delete these files through this app.

Important notes

  • Module_json ONLY supports files below 5mb. A 5mb Plus file size for JSON is quite large but you can use such files in Javascript solutions.
  • You will find your installed app at the bottom of the Webapp Section of your admin menu.
  • You will need to delete your webapps through.
  • This app is a single purchase to use on all your sites under a single partner account.

FAQ

Q. Why can a JSON file be 5mb or higher?

A. You will find that when you have large descriptions in your webapps this can form a lot of the file size in the JSON file

Q. Could you implement an easier custom field drag and drop order system?

A. We did look at this. Custom fields all have an order number and each is changed every time one item is moved. When you move an item up or down in BC the delay you often see occurs as BC is reordering all the item values. Tryng to implement drag an drop solution creates a very slow implementation which defeats the purpose. We may revist this at a later date.

Q. You mention CSV files, how do these work?

A. In the information section of the App we provide details on how to use the CSV files and offer both Templates and examples to help you form your own.

Q. Can I just form my own CSV in the correct format and import these without exporting first?

A. Yes, this is the great thing with using CSV, it allows you to do this.

Q. If I have extra requiments, could these be added?

A. Please contact us if yo uwish to have special features to this or any of our apps.

We are working on an issue with comments. Comments will be back soon.
