Today’s Topic: Using Your IBM i Tables with NodeRun

Last week we introduced NodeRun, which is a great tool for experimenting and designing applications with Node.js and Profound.js in a cloud environment. This environment is perfect for creating database-driven applications that you can share and collaborate on with others. To enable building these database-driven applications, the NodeRun environment is built with a MariaDB database already installed.

One of the biggest perks of NodeRun is the ability to build tables. Creating a space using one of the built-in templates will create a table that you can use in NodeRun's environment. These tables are pre-populated with example data that you can use in your application.

'Tis the season for reflection on the year, and for those whose businesses use the IBM i platform, that includes taking stock of their development environment. 

The IBM i platform turned 30 this year, and unfortunately many businesses have done the bare minimum to keep their outdated RPG applications humming along.  On the other side of the coin, more and more businesses have embraced modernization and digital transformation on the platform, including transforming green screens into GUI applications and updating RPG code from fixed-format to free.

One thing that sometimes holds us back from trying new technologies is the time and effort required to install and set up the environment.

What if you could jump right in and start developing without having to install anything and have several application templates at your fingertips immediately?

Introducing NodeRun! A brand new cloud environment that provides users with their own spaces to create Node.js applications. The environment comes with a Visual Designer, full IDE, and has Profound.js pre-installed on a Linux virtual server. Here are some of the highlights of our newest tool:
