I've asked this question in another topic, but I think it has been overlooked, so I'll ask in here.Can we get a downloadable example app?
With the current documentation I'm unable to create a working app or recreate the example app. I don't mind going through some trial and error, but I'm totally in the dark now.
When I install sidebar icons, or the bookmarks app I see content appearing in the file:*.zendesk.com/api/v2/apps/installed.js
When I install a custom app, this file stays blank (empty function declaration).
I'd like to see an example app also. I'm trying to get a basic hello world app working, and I only see 'There are no Apps installed for this account', despite that I do have my app installed. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot the problem without more information.
As provided by Jake in another topic:http://developer.zendesk.com/documentation/apps/example.html#download
Hi everyone, I managed to finish a very simple Hello World App. If anyone is interested, it's attached in this post. --Nicu
I spent some time this morning re-writing the example app that we supply in the documentation. I removed as much as I could in order to just show two examples in the app:
@Nicu - I would say your next step would be to move that Hello World string to a translation or save it as an App setting so the user can change the greeting!
Where is this example app that "posts to an external service" ? The only one I have found is the Bookmarks app and it does nothing external from what I can see.
Also, I have not been able to send any POST data at all. Likely due to XSS limitaions. Is there a way to utilize jsonp for these instances?
Nicu, I found your example app very helpful.
With the sample app / zip file in the tutorial (the bookmarks app), if I unzipped it and then rezipped it the new zip file could not be loaded by Zendesk. With your example file that problem went away.
Update: We posted a 5-part tutorial series that teaches you how to build a working Zendesk app from scratch. It starts here:
