Qlik Sense Mash-Up API Tutorials

Hi everyone,

I've created a series of tutorials around the basic functions of the Qlik Mash-up APIs.  Hopefully the tutorials will be able to get people up and running in creating web sites and applications using this API.

There will be some blog posts on Branch coming soon with more details and tutorials, but I wanted to make these available now.

The posts reference some code samples on Qlik Branch here:

http://branch.qlik.com/projects/showthread.php?308-Sample-Code-for-Mash-up-API-basics

The videos can be found here:

Part 1: Getting Set Up - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffyZy7RlSoE


Part 2: Embedding Objects -

Part 3: Connecting to Fields - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqGwrGhlW-I

Part 4: Creating HyperCubes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDbDbkc22Ds

Thanks, hopefully they'll be helpful for learning how to use this API.

Re: Qlik Sense Mash-Up API Tutorials

These are great, Brian, but on Part 3 whenever I get to the stage of adding the app.createlist function, when I save or even just try viewing the changes, my js file gets overwritten and I'm left with just ...

/*global require

  ;

It doesn't matter if I drop the file in or edit it in workbench editor, the result is the same.

Any ideas? I think I encountered another similar issue when playing with extensions earlier this year and gave up.

Re: Qlik Sense Mash-Up API Tutorials

That was happening for me, yes, but only while coding in the workbench editor.  I think its a bug.

But, if I got to the file by going to the folder itself, it worked fine.  If you open the file in a text editor and save it should work.

Ahh, I need to avoid going into the editor and using View and instead use the Show option from the popup in the Workbench home page, yes that works! Thanks.

Re: Qlik Sense Mash-Up API Tutorials

Sorry, I must be doing something wrong but I don't get the workbench site at  http://localhost:4848/workbench

I get a blank screen, localhost 4848 does establish a connection on telnet.

Re: Qlik Sense Mash-Up API Tutorials

Do you have Qlik Sense Desktop installed and running before going to http://localhost:4848/workbench?

HI Daniel,

Are you able to get to the Qlik Sense Desktop Hub from your web browser (http://localhost:4848/hub/my/work)?  Also, can you confirm which version of Qlik Sense Desktop you are using?

Sorry, I was using version 0.96.0, I've updated to version 1.0.0 and it works fine now.

Thanks for your help Josh.
