Introduction and Installation of HTTPCalloutFramework

Hello Trailblazers,

About 4 months ago, I created a new framework to simplify HTTP Callouts in Salesforce. I made it free, open sourced it on GitHub and shared the same with my #SalesforceOhana i.e. YOU. I got valuable feedback from some of you for which you can see the comments on the post below:-



Thanks to everyone who gave their suggestions on the above post. I improved the framework and recently had a webinar on this. At that time, I decided to create a small tutorial series on this instead of a webinar because there is so much to tell about this framework which can't be covered in one webinar. ( Thanks Radhika Bansal for your suggestion 😊 )

So, here I present the first tutorial in Simplifying the Callouts Tutorial Series by SFDCStop. In this tutorial we're going to have a brief look at HTTPCalloutFramework which is a free and open source solution to simplify apex HTTP Callouts in Salesforce. This is going to be a Video - Only Tutorial Series and I am going to cover everything up in about 6 or 7 tutorials at max (estimated). I am going to share all the resources (presentation/code/videos) in the blogs that I am going to publish under this tutorial series.

For the first tutorial, we have a presentation featuring Why do we need this framework ? What's the current scenario that we're dealing with ? and how does it help you to simplify the callout implementation.

Also we're going to cover the following stuff:-
  1. Installation of HTTPCalloutFramework
  2. Configuring the framework in your org
  3. We're going to perform a callout using 2 LINES OF CODE to a static SFDC Stop Blogs API:- https://sfdcstop.herokuapp.com/blogs 

    YES..!! You read it right...!! We can perform a callout in only 2 lines of code using this framework

To know more, have a brief look at the presentation below:-



And here is a video featuring HTTPCalloutFramework:-



If you liked this tutorial, make sure to give a try to HTTPCalloutFramework and let me know your feedback in the comments section below. You can also contribute to the framework by sending a pull request on github.

Happy Trailblazing..!!
