SDKs

A simpler way to use the mydigitalstructure platform within your application.

mydigitalstructure is a pure http API that can be accessed via RPC and/or REST methodologies.

If your app development environment can send and receive a request using http, you're good to go!

ie in the web browser environment using the XMLHTTPRequest (XHR) object.


There are many different approaches to building apps; if you're new to using http based platforms and/or mydigitalstructure, we've created SDKs for the most common app environments - allowing you to get up and running fast.

All SDKs use a common Create, Retrieve, Update & Delete (CRUD) pattern and access the mydigitalstructure platform using a consistent method-object-data-callback pattern.

SDK Pattern

INIT  
Callback The function/method to call once the method has completed.  Return parameters include isLoggedOn:.
Callview The function/method that is called when something changes in the scope of the application - includes parameters status: and message:.

status values: 'request-start', 'request-end', 'error', 'info'

You can then directly update the view elements or pass the data to the to the view-model framework you are using.

AUTH  
Logon Name This is the users logon name, as set up using the mydigitalstructure console.
Password The users password that matches the logon name.
Callback This is the function/method that will be called once the auth method has completed - it can be a string or direct reference to the function.  If the parameters returned to the callback function includes status: 'get2ndFactorCode', then you need to get the code from the user and then recall the auth method with the 2nd Factor Code parameter set.
2nd Factor Code Code sent to the user via mobile phone or a like.
CRUD  
Method The method name ie create, retrieve, update or delete.
Object The object you want to interact with ie Contact, Action, Invoice ... see full list.
Data / ID The json formatted data you are sending to the object; for the retrieve/delete methods you can set as the numeric ID.

For the create/update methods the data is the properties you want to set on the object; for delete it is the ID of the object and for retrieve it is the search criteria or the ID if just a single object instance you want to retrieve.

Callback The function/method to call once the method has completed.

In all cases you can manage your space (apps, users etc) using console.mydigitalstructure.com.

As as a developer you can sign up for free, and use the use this logon name / password to play with the SDKs.

All SDKs include a help method, which returns current application state and other useful information to assist with debugging.

Object definitions.
