I need to do a connect and Forge app
“Connect and Forge” apps are still in alpha so I’d recommend sticking to Connect for now if you want to build a production app that can’t be built using exclusively Forge features.
Will the connect app get all of the lifecycle events when the app is installed?
You can declare install and uninstall handlers (but not enabled or disabled).
What is the best way to communicate between the connect and forge parts of the app?
That’s a great question. We don’t offer an easy way to facilitate such communication, yet. If you’d still like to try, though, you could experiment with sharing data via entity properties, with web triggers or with custom authentication between forge functions and your app server over HTTP.
Is there an example app that uses connect and Forge?
Hope that helps.
