GDownload is dope! Great job.


#7

@Jerin_Jacob what exactly is the GDownloader method?
the same as using the web component like this
How to download a file and save it on your device

if yes, then isn’t that new method redundant somehow?

also downloading a file from the internet might take a little bit, so usually this would be an asynchronous method… but where is your GotFile event?

concerning the package name: usually the recommendation is to use separate package names for each extension…

I am sure, there is absolutely no problem to add methods/events/properties that already exists. People will choose extension that they like.


#19

yes exactly
however let me recommend the extensions developers to focus on extensions or new methods, which provide something new, i.e. which is currently not possible using existing blocks or extensions…

Taifun


#20

Yes I agree that we should always make new methods. But for example, I actually didn’t know that TextUtils have that method.


#21

But if it already exsist and it is paid, then your welcome to make something like it :slight_smile: :+1:

Hey @Arjun_Kumar the otp doesn’t go anywhere.The use of that block is to generate a random 5 digit number .And you can make use of this block with the instructions from above quote to send otp to a mobile number.
