📍 Freshworks Developers Bulletin - February 2021

Alternate text

Hello everyone, welcome again!

We don’t know if it’s just us, but January always feels like the fastest month of the year! We do hope that you have been able to keep up with your new year’s resolutions. Someone in our team mentioned they’ve even built a habit tracker in Notion to stick to their resolution, so if you’re having trouble, you could try that too!

Also, have you noticed how oddly satisfying February looks on paper? It’s apparently called a rectangle month and something that can only happen in February!

Pro tips💫

  • Enable ‘debug mode’ if you struggle with debugging or if the error messages from Freshworks CLI are not helpful.
  • Learn how to extend your developer account, so you don’t have to worry about your trial account expiring prematurely.
  • Code review guidelines are provided in detail to understand each best practice to be followed. It’s best to go through this during the app development and before publishing an app.
  • Time to live (ttl) option in Data Storage to store the data only for certain periods. There’s a blog to know more about it.
