Messaging and audio updates

Version 2.36 is now available and includes some great new features !

Push notifications messaging from the CodeNeighbor system is now available. System messages can be delivered for updates and information. This update allows CodeNeighbor to release timely updates and stay connected with you and your teams. Communication is key to success and these updates provide a pathway to our next steps which is chat messaging support.

The main component of this remote notification setup is the Apple Push Notification service, also known as APNs. APN in actuality is a collection of services that allows the developer to send the notifications from their server to the targeted iOS devices. The APNs are robust and secure methods to establish a connection between the provider server and individual Apple devices. 

Audible and speech cues have also been added to complement any messaging. Incoming messages from the system can provide audio cues when they arrive and we are interested in evaluating the role audio cues can play in improving engagement and outcomes in the context of messaging. This feature does provide the ability to be disabled should one wish to turn it off.

Whiteboarding … lets play with paint

Version 2.01 is released and with it the new feature of white boarding. This initial release of drawing capabilities is just the beginning .. the whiteboard is where you can draw out ideas, sketch, fingerpaint … and eventually collaborate in real time.

This introduction will continue to have updates providing for more feature rich capabilities – adding shapes, text and the usual suspects. Planning has begun to use this new feature as the initial real time collaboration for individuals and teams to use a whiteboard with other collaborative features to follow.

We hope you like this simple addition … take it for a spin … even to do some simple finger painting !

Version 2.0 is in the store !

We hope you have been trying out CodeNeighbor and now an updated version, 2.0, is available in the store !

As always, we are continuing to apply new feature updates to ensure this application provides the developer community with great capabilities and as always, your feedback is welcome and requested.

Version 2.0 adds an exciting new feature: CRON (no, not TRON, which would be cool – stay tuned, ya never know if a light cycle might appear). CRON is available in the automation section and provides that feature which may not be available in corporate environments and includes some capabilities not available in the traditional CRON as well.

CRON is just the first of more automation capabilities on our roadmap and a sneak peak of that is adding a visual workflow builder and API creation, testing and deployment to a Swift server as well … so stay tuned.

Script invocation … all the rave

CodeNeighbor has introduced a new item in the dashboard: scripts. With scripts (currently only unix scripts, but other supporting coming soon for Swift, Python, etc.), invocation of the script can be done within the application.

Wait, that’s not a big deal, right ? Actually, it is just the first phase of a planned automation in early 2024 … the ability to run a flow using scripts, code and built-in functions to perform custom workflows. The flows could support code and application generation, data transformation, API testing .. seemingly endless possibilities.

This is part of a larger vision for what CodeNeighbor can do for you and your team. Imagine, using (another soon to be introduced feature) a schedule, to search for artifacts matching a criteria, deciding if the results should be further analyzed for useful code snippets, notifying the team at 2am of those findings.

Clearly, there is a large roadmap ahead of us, but we believe this will open more ideas and creative solutions that not only save time but improve communication and collaboration.

We are excited to be planning these upgrades and welcome others to be involved, provide beta testing and feedback … and those that do would be provided with level upgrades for their efforts. Stay tuned.
