Appgyver image upload solution

Just wanted to share with appgyver users that posting and retrieving images will not work unless you create an object list to store both the downloadURL and the storageKey. You can do this by creating a column with JSON data type in backendless.

For your reference:

And

After that you can create record. Formula is:

MAP(outputs[“Get bucket download URLs”].files, {downloadUrl: item.downloadUrl, storageKey: item.storageKey})

Hope that helps someone.

Hello, @l_r

Thanks for your information, I believe it will be very helpful for other users.

Did you try to do the same in UIBuiilder?

Regards, Dima

I’ve never tried the UI builder, and dropsource comes with a hefty price tag. So lately, I’ve been testing appgyver for frontend mobile dev (react native), and using backendless as the backend. It seems to be working well.

Hi
Thanks @l_r for the information.
It’ll be great if you can post your code (sorry no-code :wink: ). I’m newbie to both AppGyver and Backendless and I’m facing the same issue.
Regards

I deleted my test app due to some issues with uploading images on newer android devices. The issue was unrelated to backendless. Appgyver has a runtime error that they are working through, and resolving in the next update. Older devices still work

Another guy posted this link not too long ago. Seems like a good guide, although I haven’t tried it. https://symmetricdynamite.gitbook.io/backendless-appgyver

I think I saw another one posted in the appgyver forum by backendless staff. So there are a few guides around.

Hope that helps
