Library Manager for SAP Web IDE
Tired of including them manually?
Then the SAP Web IDE Library Manager is the solution for you!
Implement libraries in your UI5 project with the Library Manager SAP Web IDE Feature
With the Library Manager, you can search, import and include libraries into your UI5 project directly in the SAP Web IDE.
How it works
A youtube video:
Select your UI5 project you’re working on:
Open the “Library Manager” in the right tab area:
The Library Manager show the project that currently is selected, a search field and result list.
Search for the library that you want include:
Select a Library from the result list and a dialog will open. In this dialog, you can configure the library. The configurable options:
- Select the version that you want to use
- Download: Means that it will download the files and import them into your UI5 project. If this is disabled, it will use the online cdn url
- Manifest: This will include a reference to the library in the resource section of the manifest.json. This will load the library when you run your UI5 project
Click on the “+” button to start the process. When it’s finished, it will show a small log in the status column.
After that you can just close the dialog. When everything went well, the Library will be in your project and the manifest will have a reference to the library.
How to get it
Create a destination in the SAP Cloud Cockpit

Please feel free to help improving this feature. You can find the project on github: https://github.com/lemaiwo/SAPWebIDELibraryManager
Please start using it and provide feedback! Hope it convinces you to use the SAP Web IDE 🙂
Thank you for sharing the information on the blog. This information is very useful especially in scenarios where we wish to use external libraries.
I tried to create a destination and add the feature as a plugin in Web IDE. However, when I append my trial account to the URL in your blog: https://sapwebidelibrarymanager-<s user id>trial.dispatcher.hana.ondemand.com, I get HTTP STATUS 503.
How do we build the library manager URL for trial user ids? Kindly assist.
I am also facing same issue please let me know if you found any solution.
Sharath and Former Member You don't have to replace the S-user. You can keep it as it is:
Thanks Wouter. It worked.
Hi Sharath and Harshal,
I assume you imported Wouter's source code into your WebIDE and tried to use your own URL instead of the one provided in the blog. You need to deploy the project to SCP then URL will work.
This should solve your problem. Thanks.
Nick Yang it will work, but it's not needed. It's deployed on a special SCP account that you can access by using the destination as I've defined in my blog.
I did deploy as you said but I've got the error message above.
The application is running as you can see.
I encountered the same problem. Just wait for 5minutes and it will appear.
What am I doing wrong here?
I am experiencing the same problem with status code 404:
Connection to “LibraryManager” established. Response returned: “404: Not Found”
Configuration is just as described above. I have also used the user out of your URL.
Would be great if you could help me an Anujit Marty who has the same issue.
Saved it, by just waiting one night. Then the function was available.
Kind regards, Klaus
Awesome, really helpful tool.
the Manager doesn't Work anymore. It allways says "Error during search". Will there be an Update?
Probably not as This not working with BAS
