Introducing Native Mobile App Support
Installing a Client App Using Docker
This is the second in a series of posts in which we work step-by-step through installing, configuring, and running our new sample applications.
As we prepared for our first Blue Button 2.0 Developer Conference we wanted to add to our
portfolio of sample client applications.
Check out our new sample applications. The links to the GitHub repositories are in an earlier blog post here: https://bluebutton.cms.gov/blog/More-Sample-Applications.html
In one of our early blog posts we provided links to a couple of sample client apps. We recognized that it is often easier to take a sample application and modify it to meet the needs of a project, rather than building something from scratch.
The Blue Button 2.0 API publishes detailed claims information for a beneficiary. As a developer I want to be able to understand the data and be able to easily delve into the data that the API returns.
The Blue Button Team continues to look at performance improvements for the Blue Button 2.0 API. The ExplanationOfBenefit resource can involve a large amount of data being transferred. To improve performance in this area we are introducing the ability to apply gzip compression.
In a previous blog post we covered how to install a Node.js client application. In this post we will cover installing a Python3/Django application to interact with the Blue Button 2.0 Sandbox API.
As we prepared to launch our Production Blue Button 2.0 API we wanted to test the API from the perspective of a third-party client application.
