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.
