I have been recently testing the new Custom API functionality and how it could be integrated with spkl. This article describes some of those tests and the current status.
In case you are not familiar with spkl, it is a great development and open-source tool created and driven by Scott Durow (thanks for all this work and the effort that it envolves! 👏). It allows you to deploy plugins, plugins steps, custom workflow activities, web resources and solutions very easily as part of your Visual Studio development and devops process.
Since the new Custom API are based on plugins, I thought that it would be great to have it in spkl as well. There is were this #403 conversation started. 😀
Scott has already produced a new version, still under development, to support Custom API 🥳 and I have run successfully a few tests:
In my test, I got a Custom API to retrieve the weather using the service openweathermap.org:
When I run this new version of the spkl utility, it automatically associates the plugin type with the corresponding Custom API:
Looking forward to having it ready in the Nuget library 🦾
