As many of you know, my team builds SAS Apps and part of our work involves building out open-source tooling and products that are complementary to the SAS Stack.
The majority of SAS Apps are built on SAS 9 (Stored Process Server) and SAS Viya (Job Execution Service). If you are running Base SAS, your traditional options would SAS/AF and SAS/Intrnet - but it would be unwise to build new apps on these, as the work would be 'throwaway' in the case of migration / modernisation.
"Server" is the latest addition to the SASjs family. It provides a NodeJS wrapper over regular Base SAS, with the following functionalities:
Ability to store files in a logical folder (aka "SASjs Drive")
Ability to run SAS code (aka "SASjs Studio")
A REST API with embedded Swagger docs
Integration with SASjs CLI and Adapter
Session Manager for responsiveness
Authentication (choice of provider)
The video below shows how you can download and launch SASjs Server on a Windows Desktop, clone the React Seed App, compile / build / deploy both frontend and backend, and finally - interact with the app interface. All within 5 minutes. The best bit - if you build apps on this framework, you have complete compatibility for any future migration to SAS 9 EBI or SAS Viya. The code is open source, you are free to work with it yourselves - or, for more rapid progress, you can also engage our team to kick-start your SAS App Development project.
