Hi Sachin Sathe​,

Are you looking to send data from mobile to ThingWorx server? If yes PTC ThingWorx have IOS SDK and Android SDK.

ThingWorx is webservice so you can access the pages via your mobile browser too. But you might want to create separate Mashups for mobile view for better experience.

Hi Sachin,

Currently TW has a Mobile App development platform it's name it's Vuforia, but it maybe too much AR related.

We had successfully build before Mobile Apps before above ThingWorx REST API using HTML5 Ionic framework ( or you may use any other you want )

Or as Ankit stated if you want to build native Apps you can use the SDKs.

Thank you Ankit for reply.

Actually I want to create mobile app through which I can show Thingworx meshup. and not through web browser

Is it possible?

You can embed a Mashup onto a WebView but it won't be super mobile friendly, also on User Profile and Organization Profile you have a "Mobile Mashup" property which you can set with a special mashup adapted for mobile routing the user to a different interface when he/she logs in from a mobile device.

Re: Can I create mobile app using Thingworx?

Will mashups respond to events in mobile?? Like Scrolling of grid, Grid double click

Hi Carles,

Actually I took your advice and i'm building an mobile app using Ionic 2, but my question is how can I implements a login authentication based on thingworx users. thanks

Re: Can I create mobile app using Thingworx?

This is our Login full code, hope it helps:

this.login = function(name, pw)

{

    return $q(function(resolve, reject)

{

var data = JSON.stringify({ "context": "appHandMeter" });

var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();

if (WITH_CREDENTIALS!=undefined) {

xhr.withCredentials = WITH_CREDENTIALS;

}

xhr.addEventListener("readystatechange", function ()

{

  if (this.readyState === 4)

{

if (this.status==200) {

   //saving result key

   var Data = JSON.parse(xhr.responseText);

   //saving token info

   var returnToken = (Data.rows[0].result);

      

var xhrlogout = new XMLHttpRequest();

if (WITH_CREDENTIALS!=undefined) {

xhrlogout.withCredentials = WITH_CREDENTIALS;

}

var logOut = REST_API.LOCATION + REST_API.LOGOUT;

xhrlogout.addEventListener("readystatechange", function ()

{

if (this.readyState === 4)

{

if (this.status==200)

{

   //calling again the logout to clean up the session cookie

var xhrlogout2 = new XMLHttpRequest();

if (WITH_CREDENTIALS!=undefined) {

xhrlogout2.withCredentials = WITH_CREDENTIALS;

}

var logOut = REST_API.LOCATION + REST_API.LOGOUT;

xhrlogout2.addEventListener("readystatechange", function () {

if (this.readyState === 4) {

resolve(returnToken);

}

});

xhrlogout2.open("POST", logOut ,true);

xhrlogout2.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");

xhrlogout2.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json");

xhrlogout2.timeout = REST_API.TIMEOUT;

xhrlogout2.ontimeout= function(){

resolve(returnToken);

}

xhrlogout2.send();   

  

}

else

{

resolve(returnToken);

}

}

});

xhrlogout.open("POST", logOut ,true);

//setting up headers

xhrlogout.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");

xhrlogout.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json");

xhrlogout.timeout = REST_API.TIMEOUT;

xhrlogout.ontimeout= function(){

resolve(returnToken);

}

//sending the post request

xhrlogout.send();

/************************/

  

} else

{

reject(this.status);

}

}

});

//Converting the user and password to base 64

var encodedData = window.btoa(name + ":" + pw);

//Construction of the login url

var loginUrl = REST_API.LOCATION + REST_API.LOGIN;

xhr.open("POST", loginUrl ,true);

//setting up headers

xhr.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");

xhr.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json");

xhr.setRequestHeader("Authorization", "Basic " + encodedData);

xhr.setRequestHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");

//sending the post request

xhr.timeout = REST_API.TIMEOUT;

xhr.ontimeout= function(){

reject();

}

xhr.send(data);

});

}
