Getting Started with C Sharp

Register and Create App

Here are the steps you need to follow in order to get started with the App42 platform

bullet Register with the App42 platform

bullet Create an App once you are on Quick-start page (after registration)

bullet If you are already registered, login to theAppHQ console and create an App from the App Manager -> Create App link.

bullet Once the App is created, you will get an ApiKey/SecretKey that you will use in your App for initialization of the SDK.

Downlaod and Set up SDK

bullet Download C # SDK

bullet Unzip the downloaded Zip file, the unzipped folder contains App42_CSharp_SDK-x.x.x.dll

bullet Put the reference of App42_CSharp_SDK-x.x.x.dll into your Visual Studio Project

SetUpCSharp

Initialize SDK

You have to instantiate ServiceAPI class and pass your ApiKey/SecretKey to initialize the SDK.

   ServiceAPI api = new ServiceAPI("<API_KEY>","<SECRET_KEY>");

Using App42 Services

Once you have initialized your SDK with API Key/SecretKey you have to build the target service that you want to use in your app. For example, User Service can be built using the following snippet. Similarly you can build other services with the same notation. Want to know about all the services of App42 Platform? Click Here

//Build User Service
UserService userService = serviceAPI.BuildUserService(); 
// Using userService reference, you should be able to call all its method like create user/update user/authenticate etc.
//Build Storage Service
StorageService storageService = serviceAPI.BuildStorageService(); 
// Using storageService reference, you should be able to call all its method like insert/save/update/delete etc for JSON objects.
//Similarly you can build other services like App42API.buildXXXXService()
