Run your app with an API

Updated: September 9, 2021

Afterpattern apps can be run remotely via an API (application program interface). This allows you to trigger apps from Zapier, Postman, command-line tools, or anything that can post to a remote server.

When an app is run via an API, there is no end-user experience; the app is run entirely "in the background." That means your app can't rely on a Final Block to perform whatever it's intended effect is; instead, your app must do one of the following:

  • Create a database record;
  • Send an email; and / or
  • Send data via webhook

Your app can automate documents, but that document must be sent to a database, attached to an email, or sent via webhook.
