Learn more about SAP Fiori tools with weekly episodes of Introducing SAP Fiori tools
SAP Fiori tools accelerates SAP Fiori elements app development by providing extensions for SAP Business Application Studio and Visual Studio Code that help developers work more efficiently to deliver enterprise-ready applications. The extensions streamline app generation, visualize page structure and OData services, inject code snippets, and provide simplified access to documentation.
If you’d like to see quick demos of these extensions in action, the SAP UX Engineering team has put together the Introducing SAP Fiori tools video series. Each entry in the series covers a different extension, with product owners walking you through the key functionality of their respective tools. The episodes, which are planned for weekly release on the SAP UX Engineering YouTube channel, are as follows:
