This video shows how to invoke a REST API from the Server Code script. There are a number of benefits to invoke a REST API from the server instead of directly from the client:
You can quickly integrate Appery.io platform with other systems using Webhooks. You can create and register a Webhook to make HTTP POST request to an external URL (your system) when a specific event occurs in Appery.io platform. In other words, your system will be notified when an event occurs in Appery.io. It’s always best to look at an example, so let’s do that.
First lets see for what kind of events you can register a Webhook. Appery.io platform supports two types of Webhooks: 1) app specific Webhooks, and 2) account specific Webhooks.
You can register a Webhook for the following app events:
For example, when you create a new version of an app (App version created), you can register a Webhook that will make a request to your system, letting the system know that a new app version was created. The request includes detailed information about the event.

A common question we get asked is: “What is the difference between Appery.io and PhoneGap?”. The simple answer is Appery.io platform uses PhoneGap (actually Apache Cordova). But let’s look into this more.
PhoneGap is owned by Adobe and the name it uses for the product. Adobe acquired Nitobi in 200x the maker of PhoneGap and donated the library source to Apache under the name of Apache Cordova. PhoneGap today is Adobe’s product that consists of Cordova plus some extra features around the framework (to make it a product and brand name).
Even thought most people use the names PhoneGap and Cordova interchangeably, Appery.io bundles Cordova in every app.
All these features and more are provided by Appery.io. Cordova is just a component within Appery.io platform which enables to build hybrid apps. Appery.io and Cordova don’t complete but compliment each other.
This webinar shows some of the more advanced and interesting Appery.io backend services features.

This week I attended the awesome Gluecon 2014 conference. Here are some of the (my) most interesting and memorable tweets from the conference.
It is clear that the cloud is disrupting the way most software is deployed and consumed. Benefits such as elasticity, agility, and operational cost savings make it very compelling for companies to go with the cloud model, and the simplicity of the browser compared to desktop software makes cloud software a favorite for end users, as well. The battle between Salesforce.com and Siebel back in the 2000s is a constant reminder of the dramatic advantages of the cloud model. The benefits of the cloud model are so compelling that it would be hard for an idea that bets against that model to even get VC funding.
What about software development tools? Why are most developers still downloading gigabytes of software libraries and installing it on their laptops? Should development tools move inside the browser also? Yes—software development tools will also end up disrupted by the cloud.
