Tim Dietrich has released version 2.0 of Aloe Express, the popular open-source Xojo Web server module. With Aloe Express, Xojo developers can quickly and easily build Web APIs, microservices, and more.
This new version of Aloe Express adds full support for SSL connections. In addition, the module can now be used in Xojo console, desktop, and Web projects. Several helper methods have also been added.
Tim has also announced the availability of four Aloe Express add-on modules, including Luna Express, Key-Value Store, XFM 2.0, and Airtable.
Luna Express is a redesigned version of the original Luna API framework that has been specifically designed for use with Aloe Express. It accelerates the creation of RESTful APIs for SQL databases by simplifying the development of endpoints for CRUD operations. Luna Express supports several popular database types, including MySQL, SQLite, Amazon Aurora, and more.
The Key-Value Store module provides developers with an extremely fast in-memory key-value API. It’s ideal for caching, managing sessions, and rapid development. With this module, you can quickly and easily generate a RESTful API based on a JSON file, save the data to disk, and more.
With the XFM module, Xojo developers can easily integrate apps with hosted FileMaker databases. This new version of XFM includes support for containers, and is now fully unlocked.
The Airtable module provides easy access to databases created with the popular
cloud-based database service of the same name. The module provides developers with classes that can be used to retrieve, create, update, and delete records in Airtable bases.
