Adding Social Authentication for Your Internal Applications Without Writing Any Code!

0
 minutes

Not every internal application is purely internal; sometimes, several organizations and teams need to have a way to automate their operations. For example, you might want to share your expense manager app with a financial advisor and other finance teams. Because there are multiple connections, having robust user authentication is crucial for such internal applications. But, adding an authentication layer to web applications is not straight forward task. The traditional approach is to have a form-based email-password authentication, then validating them with the backend using auth tokens and redirecting them onto the application. Sometimes users and developers prefer a faster way of using social authentication. This authentication allows users to log in to your app with their already set up credentials from their selected social sites.

Today, I’ll show you how you can add social authentication with Google to Appsmith applications without writing any piece of code. To do this, we will use Xano as the backend.

Before getting started, let me give you a quick introduction about Appsmith and Xano, in case you’re new here.

Appsmith is a low-code open-source framework to build internal applications, dashboards, crud apps, and many more. With Appsmith, it’s possible to create a fully functional and custom frontend in minutes. Connecting data sources with Appsmith takes a few minutes, and you can quickly build tools on top of the database of your choice.

Xano is one of the few no-code backend platforms that provide a comprehensive Database test environment, which allows you to easily switch between production and test data. Xano also provides API request history and easy ways to monitor CPU Usage and Database Record utilization.

Alright, now let’s get into it.

Getting Started: Creating an Account on Xano and Appsmith

The first step is to create accounts on Xano and Appsmith. In this tutorial, I’ll use the cloud versions on both Appsmith and Xano.

Note: Since Appsmith is open-source, you can always use it locally or self-host it on your own servers using Docker.

  • Navigate to appsmith.com and sign-up for a new account if you’re a new user or login to the existing one.
  • Navigate to xano.com and sign-up for a free account on the other tab. Ensure you select the Google authentication in the auth types during the onboarding process.

After the Xano app is created, navigate to the API page in the dashboard, we’ll see two API groups; one is Default, and the other is google-oauth.

CleanShot 2022-02-17 at 07.52.25@2x.png
  • Before we start to use them, let’s first get our OAuth credentials from Google, for this, you’ll need to open Google Console, and create your API credentials. Here’s what it would look like:
CleanShot 2022-02-17 at 07.51.26@2x.png

If you’re new to creating social auth keys on Google console, you can follow these steps from the documentation here.

  • Now you will need to navigate to the Settings tab on the Xano dashboard and hit manage on the Environment Variables. Under this, we’ll see google_oauth_client_id google_oauth_secret variables. Here, copy the credentials from the Google console.

Building the UI on Appsmith

Appsmith comes with a vast array of pre-built UI components: widgets. These can be fully customisable to help you build good-looking applications. For this application, I’ll keep the UI clean and simple, however, you can always add more to your applications based on your use-cases.

Now follow the below steps:

  • Create a new application on Appsmith, and choose “Build from scratch using drag and drop”.
  • Rename the Page name from Page1 to login by clicking on the existing page.
  • Click on the + icon next to widgets from the side bad and drag and drop a container widget onto the canvas.
  • Now, add a button widget and a text widget inside the container to create an authentication form.
  • Click on the text widget and set the Text property to Log in, similarly set the button label to Continue with Google.

Here’s a screenshot of the form that’s built on Appsmith:

Initializing the Authentication Flow

To initialize the authentication process, we’ll need to configure APIs on Appsmith from Xano, to do this follow the below steps:

  • Open the Xano dashboard, and navigate to the Settings tab; now click on the google-oauth API group.
  • We should see all the APIs that we can consume to finish our authentication, and yes, all these are automatically generated without writing any code, thanks to Xano.
  • Now, select the oauth/google/init API and copy the endpoint.
CleanShot 2022-02-17 at 09.47.21@2x.png
  • On Appsmith, click on the + icon next to Datasources and create a NEW API.
  • Rename the API endpoint to init, and paste the copied URL.
  • This endpoint expects an redirect_uri, this basically, redirects to another page if the authentication is successful. So, we’ll need to create a new page on Appsmith, and copy it’s URL to the redirect_uri param on the init API.
  • Now create a page on Appsmith, by clicking on the + icon next to the Pages on the sidebar. Rename the page to welcome.
  • Copy its URL, navigate back to login and paste the URL in the redirect_uri param, here’s how the API should look like:
CleanShot 2022-02-17 at 09.56.05@2x.png
  • We’ll need to add the Redirect URL onto the google console so as to redirect from Google Auth after the redirection is successful.
CleanShot 2022-02-17 at 10.06.08@2x.png

There’s one last thing, we will need to set the button onClick action to JS and copy the following:

{{init.run(() => navigateTo(init.data.authUrl, {},'SAME_WINDOW'), () => {})}}

This code snippet will navigate to the redirectURI that’s requested from the init API call, which is obviously to the welcome page.

Note: The auth endpoint from Xano we used in this section is responsible for sending the user off to a Google webpage to authenticate. Once complete, the user will be redirected to where this request was initiated and then depending on your requirements, the user will go down the login, signup, or continue path.

Next, we’ll need to configure the continue flow to get details from the user and manage if the user is a first time user or an existing user.

Configuring the continue Authentication Flow

To configure the continue workflow, navigate to the welcome page on Appsmith; this is where the user lands after the initialization is complete. First, let’s design the UI.

  • Drag and drop a container widget onto the canvas, just like we did it for the login page.
  • Add an image, text widget and a button widget for the look, here’s how I’ve designed it, you could add images and colours of your own choice:
CleanShot 2022-02-17 at 10.14.37@2x.png

Next, create a new API by clicking on the + icon next to the datasource section and follow the below steps:

  • Rename the URL to oauth_continue
  • Copy the /oauth/google/continue endpoint from Xano and paste it into the request URL.
  • This endpoint needs two parameters:
  • code: which will be queried from the URL queryParams. (accessed from the previous login page after the redirection from google is complete)
  • redirect_uri: Same as the Page URL

Now let’s test it out by clicking on the Login button from the login page, and we should successfully see the response on the continue API.

Here’s the GIF:

Awesome, we were now successfully able to finish the authentication process, now let’s bind the data onto the UI with JavaScript.

For this, set the text property on text widget to:

Welcome {{oauth_continue.data.name}}

This will show the username from the Google Account when the user is logged in.

Securing Pages on Appsmith with Xano Auth

To create a secure page on Appsmith with auth add a new page by clicking on the + icon next to the Pages. Next, drag and drop a TAB widget onto the canvas.

Now, open the property pane of the tab widget and rename the Tab names to logedin and notlogedin; under the Default Tab property, paste the following snippet:


{{appsmith.store?.user?.token? 'logedin':'notlogedin'}}

This snippet will show logedin tab when the user has logged in and the notloggedin tab when there is no user. Here's how it works:

This is how we can achieve social authentication on the internal application! To see more details about other social providers, follow the Xano documentation here.

Announcement

Today we're excited to announce the launch of Version Control with Git, so that developers can collaborate and version control their applications. This has been one of the most requested features from our community.

While low-code frameworks like Appsmith save a developer's time via easier application management, faster plugging in of data sources, and effortless creation of UI, there are still aspects of a developer's usual workflow that aren't native to low-code platforms.

Version Control with Git, enables us to take a big step towards that.

Here's a short video on how you can use Version Control with Git:

Version Control with Git Highlights

Version Control with Git allows multiple developers to add their work in a git branch, raise a pull request for code reviews, integrate with CI/CD pipelines so that their changes go live when their pull requests are approved, and provide a commit history to go back to a previous version if something were to go wrong. You can now also test a new addition to your app on a separate branch without breaking your deployed version.

You can connect to any popular version control tool of your liking: Github, Gitlab, Bitbucket, AWS Code Commit and more.

Furthermore, if you're a large organization using isolated environments for your production and test apps, you can now ensure that your applications can only be promoted to production via your CI/CD processes.

Version Control For All

Appsmith's Community Edition users will be able to connect unlimited public repos and up to 3 private repos.

In contrast, low-code frameworks in the market today either don't offer this functionality as part of their open source or free edition (and instead offer a simple auto-save), or push it deep into their most expensive pricing plans (like Retool).

Head over to our Version Control with Git documentation on how to set up version control with your favorite version control tools and get the most out of it.

Monthly Round-up

If you’ve followed Appsmith for a while, you know that we can do a lot in 30 days! I am here to give you all the deets; follow along!

Application Theming [Beta]

One of our most awaited features — App Theming — is now out! Style your pages and widgets using global controls. We've also made it easy to change the visual layout with a single click.

Note that while all apps support theming, changing the theme or customizing the theme may not update the app entirely for older apps. We’ve done this to prevent overriding any changes you may have already made while styling your widgets. (Note that, this is a beta feature at the moment, and we are going to be improving it in the coming weeks).


Theming automatically updates multiple properties, including fonts, colors, borders, shadows, etc. All these properties can be configured from the property pane globally. Read the complete documentation here.

Discard Changes/ Delete Branch on Version Control

Version Control with Git is well-loved by Appsmith users, especially when working with teams. We’ve enhanced this feature by adding another option other than ‘commit’ to make it more flexible. Now you can discard changes on the current branch and reload the earlier, committed application. Additionally, you can also delete the stale or unused branches.

Allowing Camera and Microphone on iFrame

Are you communicating to other websites from Appsmith? Our latest improvements will help you get the most out of it. All you have to do is use allow="camera; microphone" on the attributes to be able to access the camera/microphone on the iframe.

Making it easy for you on Windows using WSL

Have trouble setting up the Appsmith server on Windows? Don’t worry. We’ve worked on some documentation to help you contribute to Appsmith on Windows operating systems that use WSL; check it out here. Prerequisite MongoDB is included, along with detailed notes on building/running the code and how to set up your code editor.

Improvements

New Copy Paste Experience

Duplicating widgets on Appsmith is now easier with the new-copy-paste experience. Here’s a quick summary of how it works:

When the layout widget is selected:

  • If the mouse pointer is not on the layout widget, the widget is pasted inside the layout widget at the bottom of the canvas.
  • If the mouse pointer is on the layout widget, the pasted widget will be aligned top-left of the mouse pointer inside the layout widget.

If the non-layout widget is selected, no matter where the mouse pointer is, It is pasted below the non-layout widget, and the widgets are aligned horizontally.

If the mouse pointer is on a widget and no widgets are selected, widgets will be posted below and are horizontally aligned.

More Pages? View them all at once!

We’ve added a new option to resize the entity explorer page to view more pages at once. Just find the expander and extend it based on your comfort :)

Total Records and Page Count on Table Header

More love to the table widget; we’ve just added total record count and page count on the table header.

CleanShot 2022-05-25 at 15.34.35@2x.png
Better Way of Running JS Objects

We’ve revamped the way we run JS Objects from the JS Editor. Just put the cursor inside the function and hit the RUN button. The editor automatically identifies which function you’re working on; you can always use the shortcuts to make this easier!

Additionally, the page load functions can be configured from the Settings tab, just like how we do it from queries!

CleanShot 2022-05-25 at 15.40.46@2x.png
Added top-level isValid property to JSONForm

Currently, the JSONForm widget has an isValid property inside the fieldState for each field. However, there is no top-level property to check all fields at once. With this update, we added an isValid property which can be used to check if the current form is valid (passes all validation) or not.

CleanShot 2022-05-25 at 15.47.07@2x.png
Enhanced Map Widget

We’ve added a new property to the Map widget that lets us enable search location from Map without entering the coordinates. You can search directly on the map and display searched fields on other widgets without clicking on the Map widget.

CleanShot 2022-05-25 at 15.48.29@2x.png

Collaborations, Technical Content, Videos & Tutorials

Last month was hectic! We’ve published a new video on how you can generate PDFs from Appsmith using APITemplate; not just this, we’ve successfully hosted a couple of live sessions.

  • In this Video, Confidence, our Developer Advocate, show us how you can build a workflow to generate PDFs from Appsmith by consuming APIs from APITemplte.io.
  • Shams Mosowi from Rowy.io collaborated with us to demonstrate how we can build an expense management tool that employees can use to submit expenses for approval using Rowy as the backend.
  • Getting started with Version Control with Git on Appsmith? We’ve created a guide on how you can connect to a Git provider to version control Appsmith apps. Watch it here.

Monthly Round-up

If you’ve followed Appsmith for a while, you know that we can do a lot in 30 days!

I am here to give you all the deets; follow along!

Introducing Multiple Widget Reflow

We’ve received a lot of positive feedback on our new drag and drop experience. Users dig being able to resize widgets and move them around. This provides them with the ultimate freedom to build applications however they want without barriers that might get in the way :P

We’ve made this even more fun and powerful by adding a multiple widget reflow feature. With this, users should be able to move widgets and resize them even when they are grouped.

This also makes the drag and drop experience more performant in avoiding UI lags while moving widgets.

Readable Application URLs

All of you have been waiting for a much-requested feature, and today, it’s finally here! The application URL now has your app name as a slug, making it easier for you to share and find your Appsmith applications. This is available immediately for all the old applications and, of course, the newly created ones. Here’s a sample app URL.


https://app.appsmith.com/app/april-round-up/home-6266f76700cba01cd0301e20

To upgrade your old app URLs, please navigate the updates section from the bottom bar and hit update. Here’s the recording of how you can do it:

Product Updates

New Response View Switchers

We've added a new response view switcher feature that lets users easily switch between response formats on the fly; you'll be able to view them in different formats (JSON, Table, RAW) based purely on ease of choice. This feature will be available on all action types (APIs/Queries on a datasource).

Added Button Variants in Table Column Type

It’s super easy to set a column type to a button on Appsmith - just navigate to column properties and update the type to Button. To make your table button more extraordinary, we’ve added the variant property taking inspiration from our button widget; with this, you can update table button types to different variants available.

CleanShot 2022-04-26 at 01.05.56@2x.png
Smart Substitution Feature on Firestore Plugin

We’ve added a smart substitution feature to Firestore plugin methods (to dynamically perform type conversions on field values in a request body). The smart substitution will work the same way for REST API requests.

Currently, this feature only gets applied to the body section of Create, Set, Add or Update commands, as this is the only input field that expects a JSON input type. This can be toggled by navigating to the settings tab on datasource.

Added MultipartFormDataType variants for REST Datasource

We’ve added ​​MultipartFormDataType variants; with this, users can add an array as a value for multipart requests on REST APIs. It will handle every item in the list as a part of the multipart request. Here’s what an example body will look like:


--IpJ9ACFxVbhXlAQuIFccoJ0K0ttFS5PVyfX3
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="myArray"
Content-Type: text/plain;charset=UTF-8
Content-Length: 3

One
--IpJ9ACFxVbhXlAQuIFccoJ0K0ttFS5PVyfX3
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="myArray"
Content-Type: application/json
Content-Length: 1

2
--IpJ9ACFxVbhXlAQuIFccoJ0K0ttFS5PVyfX3
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="myArray"
Content-Type: application/json
Content-Length: 4


Enhanced Text Widget

When the truncating text option is enabled in a text widget, the scroll switch is no longer valid; as we truncate to fix this issue, we made the following changes.

We’ve added an overflow property option with the following configurations:

  • Scroll Contents - Enables scroll in the text widget
  • Truncate Text - Enables truncation in the text widget
  • No Overflow - No scroll or truncation
CleanShot 2022-05-02 at 16.39.07@2x.png
Added Support to MinIO in S3

You can now connect MinIO instances on Appsmith using the S3 plugin. This can be done when:

  • over the unsecured connection (HTTP)
  • when secured via a CA-signed certificate (HTTPS)

You can find this connecting in a dropdown from the S3 datasource.

Select Widget is now 50x Faster on Large Datasets

We’ve been listening to a few issues with the select widgets when large datasets are used. Previously, in the case of these large data sets, the Select widget took up to 5 seconds to render. The initial render is down to ~100ms once the options are available from the API call.

Our engineers tested this thoroughly by loading 1000 options from a mock API on a newly upgraded test widget :)

New Collaborations, Technical Content, Videos & Tutorials

Last month was crazy for us; we’ve published a blog post on how you can connect Stipe on Appsmith to manage your transactions; not just this, we’ve successfully hosted four live sessions.

  • We’ve created a small guide on how you can use JSON forms on Appsmith. This widget lets you build any kind of form with JSON dynamically. Learn how to use it here.
  • Stephen Tillman, one of our active community members, joined us to show how Appsmith helped him to build a great dashboard that lets him manage credit cards on Brex using BrexAPIs. Watch the recording here.
  • Pranav and I hosted the third How Do I Do X session, where we picked questions from the community to integrate with ZohoCRM and Stripe APIs. We’ve also talked about how you can use resetWidget and clearWidget functions on Appsmith to handle form actions. Watch the recording here.

If you’re interested in using a database not listed on our website as an integration, please let us know about it by raising a PR on Github, and we will do our best to include it at the earliest.

What’s a Rich Text element?

asdsadasdsa

asdsadasdsa

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

sfdfsdfds

dsfdsfdsf

adfkaldf

The rich text element allows you to create and format

sadadasdasdas dsada sadas asd ad

Static and dynamic content editing

  1. vdfgdgd
  2. gjgjg

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
