Kii Cloud Launches Unity SDK, Data Browser and Server Extension!
We are happy to announce some exciting new features that will make building your app even easier!
Kii Cloud is an MBaaS (Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service) that gives you the tools to add backend and cloud services to your mobile app without ever writing server code or managing servers or databases. Learn more at kii.com
Unity is one of the most powerful and popular 3D game development engines available for mobile developers. Its strong community and powerful tools allow developers to create awesome games for multiple platforms in a fraction of the time.
While these tools are great for building a killer game, developers still have to focus resources on setting up a backend if they want to have any kind of cloud functionality. This could be user management, high scores, community, or anything you might want to store persistently across devices.
Fortunately, with Kii Cloud’s new Unity SDK, you can leverage a scalable and reliable infrastructure without ever dealing with any servers or backend code! Leverage user management, data storage and analytics out-of-the-box to bring cloud functionality to your game in a matter of minutes.
With many MBaaS solutions, sometimes having client SDKs alone isn’t enough. Maybe your app needs to process information as it’s coming in from your users? Maybe you want to be able to update how data is stored without rolling out updates to your app? The fact of the matter is, there are sometimes requirements for a “helper” server to supplement your Kii Cloud app.
Rather than have to spin up a helper server, Kii Cloud now offers a server extension – where you can create custom APIs and run code in Kii’s cloud. This further reduces the need to work with any servers, and as with all Kii Cloud services – it’s easy to set up and will automatically scale as your app grows.
One of our most-requested features is now available in the Kii Developer Portal! The Kii Data Browser allows you to view the objects that are being created and stored within your app. Built with an awesome UI, the browser allows you to easily drill into buckets, sort, and even run queries to filter the data results.
We’ll have more on each of these topics over the coming days, so keep an eye out! Until then, happy coding 🙂
