This will be a quick post. I wanted to share a few links for people who want to take a look at Auth0 Webtask, the serverless platform behind Extend. Some of these links will be obvious, some not, but hopefully they will be helpful for folks who want to learn more.
- First and foremost, start with the docs. I've been doing some edits here recently but in general, they are in good shape and will help you get started.
- Don't forget the online editor. I really, really love my editor and it is the primary tool I use for all my development, but the online editor is very well done and if you aren't sure you want to "commit" to installing the CLI, then I suggest simply working there to get started. The CLI has full parity with the editor so you can switch back and forth.
- There is a public Webtask slack at webtask-chat.slack.com. You can signup here: https://skynet.run.webtask.io/webtask-signup. I didn't even know this existed until a few days ago as it is a bit hidden in the "Contact Us" modal. I'll be making this more visible soon.
- The Auth0 Blog has some great content (they even covered LoopBack multiple times!) including good articles on webtask. You can find Webtask specific entries here: https://auth0.com/blog/tags/webtask/. Be sure to click the "Older posts" button at the bottom as the first page of results is pretty short.
- There is a webtask workshop that you do by yourself to get introduced to different parts of the platform.
- If you are already doing serverless with the Serverless framework, they support webtask too. You can read about that here: Auth0 Webtasks - Introduction. I've not blogged on the Serverless framework yet. I hope to have a few entries on that in the next couple weeks.
- Finally, my current posts here on webtask may be found at the tag: https://www.raymondcamden.com/tags/webtask. Not a lot yet, but it will grow. :) You will see more posts on the official blog, but I'll be covering it here as well.
That's all for now and I hope this is helpful!
