Lightning Locker Service Salesforce

Summer 16 pre-release notes are out from salesforce and one of the most important featuresis Lightning Locker Service for Lightning Components.

Here is a very detailed article on how this feature  works under the hood .The article Highlights the key security features that this feature will enforce on the components.

The biggest benefit from an ISV perspective will be ability to scan the component before you submit your component for the security review.

Salesforce also released a CLI tool for all partners and app developers to run scan locally on the lightning component to discover potential security issues or unused variables and enforce security best practice and code best practice.

In this blog I am gone to detail step by step instructions on how to Install the Salesforce Lightning CLI and Scan your components before submitting for appexchange or handing off your lightning component code to your client.

Step 1 - Heroku Installation

Depending on your OS version one can install the Heroku  toolbelt on your machine .The URL for the download is below

Step 2 - Login via Command Line 

Once you install ,you can use your Heroku credentials to login in .If you have not signed up for heroku ,you can sign up for one online 

Step 3 -Install the Lightning CLI Plugin.

This can be installed by running following command once you login into heroku CLI

heroku plugins:install salesforce-lightning-cli

Step 4 -Navigate to your project path where you have your lightning component project on your local drive.

If you are on windows simply CD into the project path with cd /.path

Step 4 - Run the CLI command to find Issues

heroku lightning:lint .

You can get rid of unused variables and resolve bunch of errors .

Invoking Apex Callout From Process Builder

Process builder is GA in Spring 15 and one of the queries I came across was around how to invoke apex callouts from Process builder .

Before process builder came we had two common approaches of calling webservice 

1)We have outbound messages as one of the Actions for workflows.This works if other party implements the WSDL that is generated once Outbound messaging is defined with appropriate end point .

The purpose of this blogpost is to demonstrate the new possibility of invoking apex callout through Process Builder
