Creating a Card

Automation Cards are created and managed within the CastHub App itself, so if you haven't already, download the app.

Once downloaded, installed and signed-in, you're ready to create your Card. Go to "Account Settings" via the icon and enable Developer Tools. You'll now have access to the Developer section of the App via the icon!

Filling out the Form

No-one likes forms, we know. We've tried to keep it as short and to-the-point as possible. This is just a quick run-down on some potentially confusing parts of the form for a new Card Developer:

  • Card Type - As discussed on the Information page, there are 3 types of Automation Cards. You must pick one for your Card.
  • Card Key - Think of this like your Element Tag. For example, hello-world. This is unique for all Cards and cannot be changed after creation.
  • Requires Identity - If true, when a User installs your Card, they must pick an Identity to give your Card access to. If left unchecked, they won't be prompted and you won't be given access to any of their Identities.

Once you're done defining your Card, continue to create it. Don't worry - only the Card Key is permanent - everything else can be changed in the future.

Your First Card

Congratulations! If all went to plan, you now have an unpublished CastHub Automation Card. This, however, is only the beginning - there is much more fun to be had!
