To follow up on the announcement of Azure Search last week, I wanted to take a minute to give a bit of framing on why we built Azure Search and how we picked its current capabilities.
This article shows you how to use socket.io to do realtime communication with your Azure Mobile Service Node backend.
We are proud this week to announce general availability of the Mobile Services .NET backend, which enables you to write your services using the power of ASP.NET Web API and your favorite .NET language.
The latest version of the Azure Mobile Services SDK for Android added support for both futures (for asynchronous operations) and offline (disconnected applications). In this post I’ll walk through the offline feature, by walking through the steps required to make the sample application downloaded from the portal (To do list) offline-enabled. We’ll be talking about the features as they’re needed for the app.
Addressing feedback on the usage of asynchronous calls in Android, we’ve released a major update in the Android SDK for Azure Mobile Services with futures support. With that, you can now easily perform multiple of those operations without having to deal with multiple nested callbacks. The changes are additive in most of the scenarios, but in some advanced scenarios we made a breaking change to make futures the default model used by the Azure Mobile Services Android SDK for dealing with asynchronous operations.
The best mobile apps handle network interruptions gracefully, allowing users to be productive despite the lack of connectivity. Learn how you can use the offline sync feature of Azure Mobile Services to create responsive apps that work, even when the network doesn’t.
Custom Authentication, AAD, CORS support, and more in this latest batch of updates for Azure Mobile Services .NET.
In my previous post I showed how to use tables in an Azure Mobile Services node.js backend to talk to a MongoDB collection for simple CRUD operations. In this post we present a way retrieve all OData query parameters passed to the table read script, so that we can support more complex read operations into the Mongo database.
