Hello everyone, I was wondering how can I write a script that runs on the server all the time and perform some updates on Metadata for example? The idea is, I want to update the user rank when they earn some points and such. Let me know if you have any ideas or direction for me to work on, thanks a bunch!

Hi Issac,

The current Buddy offering doesn't provide server code functionality. Other customers have used SDKs on their own web servers to poll Metadata, to do what you'd like to do. Another option is to switch to our Parse offering, which does support server-side code. We are currently testing that offering; if you are interested send email to [email protected] For more details about our Parse offering, see https://buddy.com/blog/exciting-news-from-buddy-parse-server-support/

Thanks!
Brad
