Interactive Apps (Plugins)¶
Interactive Apps (Plugins) can be developed and deployed using the same tools that are currently provided for all Open OnDemand applications.
An Interactive App is a Dashboard App plugin that follows a custom file/directory structure and API that can be described by the four stages: User Form, Render Template, Job Submission, and Connection View.
A typical file/directory structure for an Interactive App can look like:
my_app/ ├── form.yml ├── manifest.yml ├── submit.yml.erb ├── template │ ├── before.sh.erb │ └── script.sh.erb └── view.html.erb
Each of these files/directories are described below in their respective stage.
- User Form
- Render Template
- Job Submission
- Connection View
