Bluemix Developer Console – Mobile Pattern

Share this post:

Hello Bluemix Users,

Many of you must have used the Bluemix Mobile Dashboard to create mobile projects using starters and then adding various services to get a running application. The Bluemix Mobile Dashboard is evolving into a broader developer console to enable not just mobile but cloud native applications. The Bluemix Developer Console 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 Mobile Pattern.

When to use the Mobile Pattern?

If you are a developer wanting to build a mobile application and consume cloud-native services ( Push, Authentication, Analytics, etc ) then get started with the Mobile Pattern. This Pattern will let you choose from a wide set of starters that you can use to build your app on. Once a starter is selected, you can include core services and generate code that can be imported into an IDE and run within a simulator.


Supported Languages

  • Swift
  • Android
  • Cordova

Depending on the starter chosen one will be given the option of what language to choose.

Consuming Bluemix Services

  • Cloudant – Use a NoSQL Database to access and sync data
  • Weather  – Access Weather data in your mobile app
  • Watson    – Explore services like Tone Analyzer, Visual Recognition, Conversation and Language Translator
  • Object Storage – Store and retrieve binary data using a cloud based object storage service
