Exciton Boost mini-preview video

Thu 6 Feb 2020, 02:58 PM

While we work to get the beta up and running, I wanted to share a quick preview with you of Exciton Boost in action. Now, since this is a Node.js demo, and since that means everything happens behind the scenes, I can mostly only show the results after I run each subsequent demo. Therefore, here's a quick cheatsheet so you know what you are seeing.
In AppDev Pack 1.0.3, the recently released version for Domino 11 (and I think Domino 10 Fixpack 4), you can create a document with text, date, and number fields only. You need to have all the information at your fingertips (or at least on your client).
For the first three demos in this video, I use nothing more than the Database.createDocument method. It looks like this, which except for the console.log message I added is the exact code I use in the video for demo1.js.

Straightforward enough. 
For demo2.js, I use the same script plus one line to create a formula for a FullName field which will compute server-side.
For demo3.js, I use the same script plus two lines to create an HTML representation of a field to be saved as rich text in the Bio field.
For demo4.js, I use a different method, the Database.bulkReplaceItems. The code looks like this (redacted the Exciton part until we are sure about the syntax):

Now, on to the demo. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, and please don't hesitate to share or Like the video.
