    App architecture

    The high-level application logic for this app is as follows:

    1. Gather user data necessary to create a player
    2. Build the JSON data structure to pass to the API for player creation
    3. On button click, perform AJAX call to create player
    4. On AJAX call success perform the following:
      • Inject JSON response data into HTML page
      • Call function to publish player
    5. Perform AJAX call to publish player
    6. On AJAX call success perform the following:
      • Inject JSON response data into HTML
      • Dynamically build HTML that displays selected player information and inject that into HTML page

    Sample app

    See the Pen Create Player by Brightcove Learning Services (@rcrooks1969) on CodePen.

    Using the CodePen

    Here are some tips to effectively use the above CodePen:

    • Toggle the actual display of the player by clicking the Result button.
    • Click the HTML/CSS/JS buttons to display ONE of the code types.
    • Click Edit on CodePen in the upper right corner to fork this CodePen into your own account.
    • Find all the code associated with this sample in this GitHub repository.

    Proxy code

    In order to build your own version the sample app on this page, you must create and host your own proxy. (The proxies used by Brightcove Learning Services only accept requests from Brightcove domains.) A sample proxy, very similar to the one we use, but without the checks that block requests from non-Brightcove domains, can be found in this GitHub repository. You will also find basic instructions for using it there, and a more elaborate guide to building apps around the proxy in Using the REST APIs.
