REST API v2.5 - Social Login for Joomla Mobile Apps using JFBConnect

Version-2.5-of-com_api-adds-new-authentication-for-JFBConnect-1

As we continue to make com_api the platform of choice to add REST API support to Joomla, we added an interesting feature that makes it very easy to add Social Login to Mobile Apps based on Joomla.

JFBConnect from SourceCoast is one of the easiest to use social login tools. When a recent project called for a seamless social login across web and mobile we had to enhance com_api to natively allow JFBConnect as one of the ways to perform the login.

TJ Queue - A message queue for Joomla

TJ-Queue-is-here

As we go on in our pursuit to use Joomla in never-seen-before use cases a few interesting problems came forth.

  • A web-hooks implementation: Similar to how plugins can declare triggers they want to listen to, webhooks allow external applications to register URLs that can receive a JSON payload when an action happens in an application. Since there could be multiple webhooks, each webhook call is queued as a message and happens asynchronously.
  • In Shika: Recalculating user progress in the background. When a new lesson is added to a course, Shika recalculates each enrolled user’s progress to take into account the newly added lesson. When there are a lot of lessons and a large number of users enrolled in the course, this recalculation cannot happen in real time. In this case, a recalculation job does this in the background once the lesson is saved.
