App Builder Release with Copy Application, New App Layouts & Presets

Zdravko Kolev / Monday, April 11, 2022

The April update of App Builder(tm) is here and includes some significant updates. If this is your first time learning about App Builder, let me quickly share again why you should consider it as a key tool in the application development process in your organization:

  • A visual app builder - the unified platform for product managers, designers, and developers.
  • Cloud-based WYSIWYG drag & drop tool that helps companies design and build complete business apps 80% faster than ever before.
  • A low-code tool producing brilliant Angular code  (and Blazor code) from your Sketch designs or Adobe XD files.

What's new?

Copy Application to a Different Workspace

You can now copy your application to a different workspace, and include all linked resources (theme, image assets and data).

New App Templates

We exposed 8 new additional app templates in the create new application dialog of our App Builder software. These new templates show off different app layouts and include navigate to actions.

New Preset Layouts

Previously, the UI to pick layouts was only available when creating a new app. We now allow users to pick existing/custom layouts when they create a new view (child or master).

Including, but not limited to:

  • Hide Swagger table context menu
  • Add progress indicator for done button when adding URL
  • Fix missing `requestInfo` on DS table
  • Hide dropdown when there isn't baseUrl to show
  • Add authorization methods required functionality
  • Swagger empty file proper handling
  • Prevent using empty json
  • Improve performance when too many endpoints
