We have an important requirement for extending SKUID to achieve an important role for our clients. Would like to build a custom component that can dynamically create salesforce custom object and fields.  In APEX this is normally done using (http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api_meta/

I would like to request any solutions, example or direction on how we can achieve this.

Hi Unmesh,

I'd recommend deploying your Skuid pages with the skuid:Page Visualforce component. This will allow you to embed a Skuid page within a Visualforce page. You can then use a custom controller or extension to implement whatever functionality you need via Remote Actions. You can call your custom Remote Actions from Skuid snippets, etc.

See http://help.skuidify.com/m/page-assignments-and-overrides/l/201793-using-the-skuid-page-visualforce-...

Building Skuid models and components dynamically is also possible using the Skuid API. So, after creating a custom object, you could query it using Skuid:
