My hands are literally shaking as I can finally announce our new baby… the result of three years worth’ in Saturday mornings, a strategic partnership and a shiny new startup…
If LightSwitch was designed to take 80% off your development time by removing the tedium involved with designing entities, queries and screens, app-stitch is designed to take another 80% out of your remaining 20% by allowing you to design your business logic!
app-stitch is a new extension that you can ‘plug’ into your LightSwitch server project (nuget). Once installed, it adds a small web interface where you and your end users can ‘design’ your business rules at runtime…
These business rules are active immediately, and can: change data when you create a new entity, send out emails when you update an entity, prevent a particular user group from deleting entities, turn an incoming sms/mms into a support ticket, check for permissions, audit changes, read files and turn them into new entities, create a QuickBooks invoice when a Paypal payment clears, turn that into a social media status and release the drones to deliver the package*, and so, so, soooooo much more.
* Drones control is highly experimental, unstable and also not really existing. But our other channels are kickass!
app-stitch is currently in beta (please join our beta program ;-) ), after which we’ll release it, initially only for Visual Studio LightSwitch!!!
I really hope you’ll enjoy our crazy invention and support us as we help this baby grow!
Keep rocking LS!
