On this past week’s Live Coding Happy Hour show we continued to enhance our cooking management application, which manages and tracks long cooks like smoking meat for 18 hours. The scenario we were looking to solve was that we needed a way to use Siri to create a cook record and then create some additional records during the cook. We ended up creating a subflow, creating a scripted REST API that calls the subflow, and then calling that scripted REST API from an Apple Shortcut.

Stop writing code! Ok, ok! That might be a LITTLE dramatic. We don’t need to fully stop writing code, just stop writing some of your code. At the very least, start asking yourself “should I really be writing this in code?”. Have you had time to sit down and check out Flow Designer yet? Seriously, it’s going to replace Workflows and if you’ve caught an episode of Live Coding Happy Hour lately, it is truly becoming the go-to tool!

IntegrationHub week is still going strong! The last two new Paris related features I will highlight on the blog will be the Payload Builder API and the JSON Parser action step. JSON Parser Building and extending spokes is one of my current favorite things to develop. One of the most common parts of integration is handling the response. Introduced in the New York release was the XML Parser step. With the Paris release, the other main format, JSON, is handled with the JSON parser step.
