A few years ago, the Sample Gallery on Trailhead launched with a couple of open-source apps to showcase the possibilities and best practices for building on the Salesforce Platform. Over the years, we’ve added more apps to it, and we keep them updated with every release. In this post, we’ll go over some of the recent updates to the Sample Gallery.
Sample apps have a new home
With the launch of the new developer website, all the apps from the Sample Gallery and all the other open-source apps that were scattered across different repos now have a new home — Code Samples and SDKs — which you can access from the “Build” tab of the website.
You now have easier access to over 200 open-source code samples and SDKs. The projects listed here aren’t just for the core Salesforce Platform; there are samples for many different products, including Service Cloud, Marketing Cloud, Commerce Cloud, Experience Cloud, MuleSoft, Quip, and even our latest addition — Slack. We’ve also included fun-to-use apps for your virtual events like gif booth, a Kahoot-styled multi-player quiz app, and more.
New code samples
As mentioned earlier in this post, most of the apps in the Code Samples and SDKs section aren’t new; they have just been pulled together from different repos. But there are two new sample apps: Functions Recipes and AZ Insurance.
Function Recipes is a collection of examples to help you get started with Salesforce Functions and get used to its main features. You can only deploy this app if you have an org with Salesforce Functions enabled. Functions are scheduled to become Generally Available shortly after the Winter ’22 release.
