Messagee

Overview

Messagee is a Twitter clone built on Usergrid, the open source solution that powers Apigee's App Services. In this simplistic example, we show how you can easily implement many of the features of Twitter by leveraging the Usergrid API.

For an in-depth look at how this app was built check out this article:

http://apigee.com/about/api-best-practices/building-twitter-apigee-app-services

Demo

A working example of this app can be found on our gh-pages branch:

http://apigee.github.com/usergrid-sample-html5-messagee

Running the app

To get started, download the code to your machine, unzip the file, and extract the files inside. Then, open this file in a text editor:

js/app.js

And locate this code that starts on line 34:

var client = new Usergrid.Client({
    orgName:'ApigeeOrg', //your orgname goes here (not case sensitive)
    appName:'MessageeApp', //your appname goes here (not case sensitive)
    logging: true, //optional - turn on logging, off by default
    buildCurl: true //optional - turn on curl commands, off by default
});

Change the orgName property to match the organization you created when you signed up for App services (usually your username), and then change the appName to match the name of the Application namespace you created in the Admin portal. By default, all new accounts come with a application namespace called "sandbox", and you can use this too.

Once you have done this, simply open the index.html file in a browser window (avoid Internet Explorer as it has known issues) and you should be ready to go. Try creating an account and logging in.
