How to create a VKontakte application?
VKontakte is one of the most successful andpopular social networks on the territory of the CIS. It's no wonder that with the appearance of the "Applications" function in it, developers became interested in it, because this is an excellent chance to express themselves and earn money. Before you learn how to create a vkontakte application, we'll look at what applications there are.
Types of applications
Service VKontakte allows to use the application of two types:
- Flash applications. This type has a specific .swf extension. To create Flash applications, Adobe Flash is usually used;
Apps from developers
If you want to create an application yourselfin the contact, you can not do without basic programming skills. Depending on the type of application you choose, you may need to be able to work with Adobe Flash, Action Script, 3D engines, understand PHP, HTML and Java programming.
Before you start, read the documents,laid out by the administration of the VC for developers. You can do it by clicking on the link. This section outlines the basic requirements for applications, a list of commands that can be used in the programming process.
Games and other applications do not have to be created"from scratch". For many applications on the network, you can find sources that you can use to download to the site, for example, download the forum. But not all developers put them on public display. In this case, you have to work a little:
- Install the desired application on the computer and start it.
- Right click on the page. We find the item "Source code" in the menu. The page code appears before us.
- In the search bar, write "http: //". The search results will be displayed in a list. Look for a link in it that ends with ".zip".
- Copy it and paste it into the address bar, removing the slashes (slanting lines). We press the "Enter" key, starting the process of downloading the archive.
- After downloading the file, replace its extension with ".swf" and open it with the help of any flash player.
- Now it is necessary to get the code of the application itself by decompiling. Now you can work with it.
If you do not have programming skills, then you can still create a flash application. And, you will not need much time. Use the site http://3apps.ru/.
Creating an application runs in several stages:
- Register in the system.
- Go to vk.com/editapp?act=create and select the type of application.
- Select iframe and type "Application".
- Select a category and start downloading the application.
- Enter the data on the 3apps website and generate the application.
Work with intermediaries
You can also use the services of programmers to create an application. Before meeting a specialist, you need to think over the following points:
- a brief description of the future program, with a list of destinations, basic functions, etc .;
- application design. The programmer is not a designer, so he needs to provide a drawing of all the elements of the program: buttons, inscriptions, drawings.
All the moments should be stated on paper, which you will give to the programmer. So you can create your own application in vkontakte.
