Before developing a Connect app, there are a few steps to get set up:
Follow the steps in the sections below to get ready.
The Cloud Developer Bundle provides a free Atlassian cloud development site for building and testing apps. To create your site:
Your cloud development site has Confluence and all the Jira products installed. Note that Atlassian cloud development sites have limits on the number of users.
With development mode you can install app descriptors in your development site from any public URL. This means you don't need to list an app in the Atlassian Marketplace before installing it.
After the page refreshes, you'll see the Upload app link. This link enables you to install apps while you're developing them.
Atlassian Connect Express (ACE) is a Node.js toolkit for building Atlassian Connect apps. It uses the Node.js Express framework, allowing you to leverage routing, middleware, and templating within a Node.js environment.
Verify that you have Node.js and npm installed correctly (the version numbers returned may vary):
1 2 3 4
$ node -v v12.12.0 $ npm -v 6.11.3
Install by running:
npm install -g atlas-connect
Verify the installation by running:
If ACE installed successfully, you'll see the following:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Usage: atlas-connect [options] [command] Commands: new [name] create a new Atlassian app help [cmd] display help for [cmd] Options: -h, --help output usage information -V, --version output the version number
Once you're set up, try a few of the Connect Tutorials.
