Hi Folks,
There has always been a need to have a lightweight editor where we can see the layouts using UI5 JavaScript Controls.
The below mentioned editor acts like a lightweight tool where we can create and view the affects of JavaScript  UI5 Controls.


UI5 Will never cease to amaze you !!



There are basically four segments in the tool

  • Editor                 : Here we can write the UI5 Controls in JavaScript.
  • Error Logs         : Any error in the Editor will be displayed over here real time.  
  • Result Section  : Live results can be viewed in the result area real time.
  • Settings             :Here you can toggle the theme and the compact density and have a                                       comparative view of hoe the controls will appear via different themes and .


Lets get started with examples . . .


  1. Simple Use  :  Creating a simple Button
new sap.m.Button({
text : 'Hello Ui5',
icon : 'sap-icon://feed',
type : 'Emphasized'

Results :


2.Complex Controls :  Create a custom list item


new sap.m.CustomListItem({
type : 'Navigation',
content : [
new sap.m.HBox({
items : [
new sap.ui.core.Icon({src:'sap-icon://video',size:'2rem'}).addStyleClass('sapUiTinyMarginBegin'),
new sap.m.VBox({
width : '50%',
items : [
new sap.m.Label({
text : 'Demo Topic',design: 'Bold'
new sap.m.Text({
text : 'Demo Topic Description.Demo Topic Description.Demo Topic Description.Demo Description.Demo Topic Description.',design: 'Bold'

new sap.m.ProgressIndicator({






Results :  



And yes you can apply different themes and compact modes on the fly.




*Note  the log will show error once you start typing but but  on completion it will be removed automatically

    Hi Pinaki,

    It’s a great idea! However an xml version would be even more useful.

    Now that we have a Mentor app for Fiori for iOS, we need a Mentor app for Fiori (UI5).
