Hi,


Just noticed the URL's are hardcoded insided the extension.

This was nice in the old days, but is it not better to consume those URL's via the proper Outsystems way?

(even though it will costs some extra AO)


Hi J.

Not really. I see no point in doing that. The way that it is now the API is just the extension, otherwise, I would need to have a wrapping module for it. Even though it would make it simpler consuming the REST endpoints in OutSystems it would create more artifacts and make the usage of the functionally more confuse (I think...).

I also see no point in having these URL configurable as they point to a production instance of Google. If the API breaks, I'll update the extension.

All that said this is provided as open source. Anyone can do their changes to it ;)

Thanks for the feedback!

Cheers
