We are currently reviewing mobile apps and are wondering if cascade has the ability sync with any? The vision is to have our users view news, events, and the calendar on the mobile app as they would see it on the website.

Thanks

    Hi,

    I was going over some older discussions and noticed this one is still open. Were you able to find an answer to your question regarding syncing?

    Off-hand, I think the best thing to do would be to use Cascade Server to generate and publish an XML (or RSS) file for each end point (ie news, events, etc) and have the mobile app pull in that file. Additionally, you could have the mobile app cache the data to the device if you wish to have the information available offline as well.

    Please feel free to let us know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks!

    Ryan,

    I appreciate the response. I was beginning to think it was impossible. Are there instructions or some sort of documentation on this process?

    Appreciate,
    Phillip

    Not a problem at all, Phillip. It's definitely not impossible, but there is a bit of work to be done outside of Cascade Server since its main purpose would be to generate the content that is consumed by the app. You would need the web server to host the published file(s) and the app would need to pull in the file(s).

    We don't have any particular documentation, but we do have some format examples for generating RSS feeds:

    We also have an example News Site that you can import which has can more context for creating RSS and Atom feeds.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
