We are pleased to announce a new release of the streamdata.io platform. It includes new features and a bunch of bug fixes both in the portal and our JS SDK.
New JS SDK
If you prefer not using our SDK or want to use streamdata.io with other platforms (Java, iOS, Android, etc), you only have to include any SSE library and JSON Patch library (see http://jsonpatch.com/) to open a stream and interpret patches sent by streamdata.io.
New security policy
From a security standpoint, the request signature is now optional, the client just has to provide an App token in their requests using X-Sd-Token as a query parameter. You can still activate the request signature in the portal (under Settings > Security ) and use an additional JS library that will help you sign your requests from the client.
Our portal enables you to manage several Apps through the same account. You can now create as many applications as you want to manage your API and the configuration of your applications independently from each other.
Finally, we have worked on a bunch of demos to help you get started quickly. All of them are open sourced and available on Github:
– Xignite demo : Using streamdataio with xignite Apis to get currencys change rate https://github.com/
– Filghtstats demo : Demo using GoogleMap and flightstats API to display realtime information on airports (departures, arrivals, weather) https://github.com/
– Bike demo : A simple demo that displays available bikes in realtime on GoogleMaps. https://github.com/
– Poll demo : This demo shows how you can create a web app to run surveys, using a Parse backend, and streamdata.io for automatic updates of the UI. https://github.com/
Stay tuned ! New features will come soon such as polling frequency configuration, HTTP/2 support, and more.
Thank you all for your valuable feedback which helps us build an awesome product.
