Development Workflow

Steps for building an application using Trillo Workbench is shown below. Trillo Workbench exposes application functions and data as a service.


  • Assumes that you have requirements, specifications, and design documents of your application available (informal or formal).

  • Assumes that you have access to Trillo Workbench UI.

  • Access to an IDE or code editor will be very useful. You need an IDE for debugging by stepping through the source code.


  • Data Model

    • Use the default database of Trillo Workbench. Or add a database that is accessible by the workbench (more about it later).

    • Add tables and/or introspect tables from an existing database.

    • Edit tables and attribute metadata.

  • Domain Metadata

    • Specify domain metadata file as JSON - these are JSON files that contain configuration or metadata used in a function later.

  • Settings

    • Add external API credentials, external authentication systems specs., public key of private/public key pairs.

    • Link GitHub account (done by admin once).

  • Functions

    • Write a function/business logic code using the Trillo Workbench editor or an IDE.

    • Debug code using an IDE.

  • Workflows

    • Workflows are functions.

    • They are mentioned briefly to emphasize that they can run as a background task with their own logs accessible from history.

    • Workflows can be scheduled.

  • Access Control

    • Developers can add or update the user roles list.

    • The actual access control rules are specified by the application users and covered in the Role-Based Access Control Chapter.
