Per @NeilR's suggestion "Embed Alteryx analytics into an app by leveraging the Server API"...

 

Why not develop a Web App that can render the UI for, and run, any applicable Alteryx Application via the Gallery API? 

 

Applicable applications would require:

 

As a reminder, all Alteryx question types are supported except for the following:

 

  • Trees
  • File Browse
  • Maps

 

I've always thought this would be a fun project and beyond useful for those Alteryx Apps that could use a more agile user interface. Would love to team up with some web developers interested in tackling this.  Two main pre-requisites and/or guidelines that come to mind:

 

  1. Serverless - for portability and ease of use (pure HTML/JavaScript)
  2. Leverage modern front-end frameworks
    • Because I beleive that design is just as important as functionality in modern web development 
    • I'm a big fan of Vue and Vuetify, and while I'd love to use them for this idea, I'm also open to suggestions.

If you're interested, check out this GitHub project where I'm developing Alteryx Tools and Web Apps using the aforementioned frameworks.

 

@NeilR, will we have access to a public Gallery?  might be a deal breaker...

Alteryx handles vector data sets fairly well, but there is no support for raster functionality outside of MapInfo .grd files (which Alteryx reads as vector objects).  I think it would be useful to create a full set of raster tools to expand the spatial functionality of Alteryx.  In my mind this is basically a set of Alteryx wrappers for GDAL functions, but if someone has a better idea, then I'm all for it.

 

It would definitely be helpful to have some strong Python scripting experience.
