Custom API’s in Windows Azure’s Mobile Services

Windows Azure Mobile Services

I was happy to see that Azure’s Mobile Services is getting more mature each week. I’ve used this for a recent mobile app project and am very happy with the CRUD javascript possibilities server side (password encryption, using it to authorize users using a custom account table on which they can login, etc..).

(Mis)using the table insert script for custom authorization is now something of the past since you can also create Custom API’s in Azure Mobile Services from now on. Create API functions and code away in Node.js to realize that sort of stuff!

Scott Guthrie announced the custom API functionality back in June. Looking more in depth into the possibilities led me to this nice blog post  about Creating Custom API’s in Azure Mobile Services by Carlos Figueira.

Gogogo Azure power!
