The Bluemix Developer Console, an evolution of the Bluemix Mobile Dashboard will follow a pattern based approach to building cloud native applications. The patterns will include but not limited to Mobile, Web, BFF( Backend for Frontend ) and Microservices. Each pattern will have a set of starters that a developer can use to get started. In this blog we will take a look at the Web Pattern.
Web patterns can be used for building web applications. A developer can start with a starter based on his/her needs. A starter could be a very basic one or one that can includes front end tooling like Webpack or one that includes a UI framework like React.
Once the code is generated for the Web Pattern, a developer can use the cloud-native plugin in the Bluemix CLI to run the web app in a local container.
The following languages will be supported for Web app creation.
Consuming Bluemix Services
The Web pattern also lets a developer to optionally include Bluemix services to add authentication and consume data.
App ID – Add Authentication to apps
Cloudant – Use a NoSQL Database
Object Storage – Store and retrieve binary data using a cloud based object storage service
