Extend is an embedded scripting environment for enabling customization and integration of your SaaS. Let customers add the capabilities they want directly to your SaaS such as custom rules or integrations.
It includes an embedded code editor for creating extensions via scripting and a runtime for executing them.
Great platform and great team.Cons:
Perhaps not a con, but must be quite comfortable with the command-line interface to manage your environment.
I use AWS and GCP and Extend/webtasks in my work. Of the three, webtasks are the most straightforward to create and deploy. I can spin up a webtask in half the time it takes to create an AWS Lambda function. It's easy to address security on the platform, as well as to use a hybrid approach between the Extend platform and other cloud providers. IMO, the greatest benefit is enabling your internal/external customers the ability to implement custom integrations without having to setup their own cloud environments.Chris Andrew has used this product for one year.
Great product. Great documentation. Easy to use and configure. Very fast and powerful.Cons:
Initial setup between online editor and cli can be confusing
I started using Auth0 extend as a prototyping framework to get API endpoints available as quick as I could. After writing a few of these, I started to expand on the framework with slack extensions. Auth0 extend is a powerful framework that is easy to setup, configure, and scale.Chris Whited has used this product for one year.
