Have you ever heard of AppBuilder?


A couple of day ago I posted a blog in SCNs mobile developer space to announce the release of AppBuilder.

Since I hang around in the mobile developer corner all the time I totally forgot that the SAP UI5 community may also be very interested in this tool. Thanks to Shen Peng to make me aware of that.

Available under you can easily download, install and start coding SAP UI5 mobile based Apps.

Just give it a try. Download, Unzip, Start (Limits apply).

The nice thing about AppBuilder is that it is a IDE completely run in your browser. And which technology can render HTML5 best? Yes, current browser technology. So it is a natural decision to just edit the App you want to write directly in the technology you use to run the App.

AppBuilder is a helpful tool to create Proof of Concept like Apps and the created code can easily be used as a starting point for your real project. Also it eases the access to OData services and works perfectly with SAP Mobile Platform Cloud Version (Trial available here:

And this is how it looks like:

WYSIWYG Design view with drag & drop support:


Code View – for the serious developer:


Don’t forget to share your experiences here.

Have Fun,
