Qlik Sense app duplicator 2.0 released

On the surface everything looks the same.

Under the hood everything has changed.

The 2.0 release of the Qlik Sense app duplicator is a major update. Most code has been refactored.

The most notable changes are:

  • Switched to using Enigma.js for talking to the Sense engine, instead of the previously used Qsocks library. Enigma is open source just like Qsocks, but the former is supported and actively developed by Qlik themselves – that is really important.
  • Much improved logging.
  • A nasty bug has been fixed.
    The app duplicator would fail semi-silently when multiple app duplication requests were sent to it simultaneously. No more of that – the duplicator now handles also high-load scenarios gracefully, and have been battle-tested in hands-on sessions when many developers created their own apps from templates at the same time. Nice.The 2.0 version is available on GitHub, as always.

Butler SOS goes main stage at Qonnections 2017

Edit:

Qlik has made available a video from Anthony Deighton’s (Qlik’s CTO) keynote session.

Very much worth looking through the entire video – it was very interesting indeed. 
His highlight of customer and partner project’s is found 12 min 36 sec into the video.

 

 

A few weeks back something cool happened.

During the big, main stage keynote session at Qlik‘s annual Qonnections conference, my Butler SOS project was highlighted as an example of a great application built on top of the Sense APIs.

I have to admit that it is pretty neat to get that kind of recognition from industry peers… a bit of ego boost :).

And it makes it easier and even more fun to work out coming, similar concepts and services. Lots more to be done around DevOps and Qlik Sense.

Speaking of which:
I started playing around with Qlik’s new Enigma.js library a week or so ago, to see if it could be used in coming projects.

Very nice indeed. Nothing wrong with good old Qsocks, but Enigma is a step in the right direction. Just like qsocks, Enigma is open source – but also fully supported by Qlik. That is a huge advantage!
