Want to leverage Alteryx capabilities in a web-app? Maybe you want to create your own data connector. Come as we introduce you to all of our developer tools so that you can show US what Alteryx is truly capable of.
Alteryx has a lot of built in functionality, but the ability to leverage custom R code opens up even more possibilities. After reading an answer on the Alteryx Community many months back, I was inspired to try and integrate Google Charts into an Alteryx workflow by using the R tool.
Alteryx isn't just a tool, it's a platform. We'll explore this, Halloween style, using Python in a Jupyter notebook to connect to an Alteryx application that performs demographic clustering for candy sales data.
If you haven't had a chance, please checkout the Decision 2016 Presidential Election application. The app predicts who the winning candidate will be within a given U.S. neighborhood, as well as breaks down the outcome by demographics such as age, education, income, and race. Data from SurveyMonkey and the blending, spatial, predictive and Gallery API functions in Alteryx are used to create predictions that are beautifully displayed with help from Carto and Tableau. This post will walk through the architecture that was used to accomplish this.
Recently we celebrated the launch of our long anticipated Tool Mastery Series, a collective of Knowledge Base articles tasked with communicating the most inspired uses of each Alteryx tool. Check out how we automated all the hard parts and brought the series to life!
YXI files are a new Alteryx file type that provide a mechanism for packaging and installing new tools in Alteryx. This creates a new possibility of creating and publishing tools so that they are easily added to Alteryx installs.
I had been with Alteryx for about two months when I started hearing people talk about CEF [Chromium Embedded Framework]. I did a little digging on my own, and true to its name, found that CEF was a framework for placing chromium based browsers within applications. Shortly after, I learned I would have a chance to use this technology myself for the upcoming release of Alteryx.
