I’m going to assume you know the basics of creating a widget and how the Service Portal widget editor works. Recently, I was talking with David Loo from Perspectium about the early days of development on the Now Platform. He told me an interesting story about Fred Luddy. It seems Fred found it a fire-able offense to copy code. OK, we’ve all done it because we’ve built that sort algorithm, widget, or component before, but the point he was trying to make is two-fold.
You asked for it, and it’s finally here! If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new course available on the Developer Portal: Service Portal. This course introduces core Service Portal concepts and currently focuses on leveraging baseline portal widgets and functionality. Topics include: Service portal anatomy Creating new portals Portal pages Page layout Containers Widgets, and adding widgets to pages Setting widget options Responsive pages Page editor Portal branding And more!
In the developer program, we have a program where on many Fridays a group of us get together and broadcast ourselves working through code problems. If you’d like to get notification of when we go live or post a new episode, you can subscribe to our YouTube Channel. Here is a list of all the shows to date, grouped by subject matter. Note that episodes may contain multiple subjects and may appear in multiple lists.
When we left Part 2 of this series, I had added an inbound email action to create GTD actions from forwarded emails. As this development project was always intended to be a demo tool as well, when it came time for us to do demos developing Angular Service Portal widgets I looked around for functionality to add. I had already done some experimentation with using ngMaterial to create a card interface for this Helsinki feature webinar so I decided to bring a similar interface into DoNow.
