New to SAP Web IDE?

Here are a few examples of the powerful solutions you can create with SAP Web IDE.

Develop & extend SAP Fiori and SAPUI5 apps

SAP Fiori apps are built using the SAPUI5 JavaScript UI library and follow the SAP Fiori design guidelines. Use SAP Cloud Platform Web IDE to quickly enable and launch new business scenarios developing your own apps or by extending and customizing SAP Fiori applications delivered by SAP. 

Develop mobile apps

Enterprise mobility is a key component of any digital strategy. Use SAP Cloud Platform Web IDE to create Cordova-based hybrid mobile apps using HAT or native apps using Mobile Development Toolkit and easily build and deploy them. Improve your productivity and reduce complexity with integrated tools for delivering mobile SAP Fiori apps.

Develop IoT apps

Develop dashboard and analytic apps for Big Data and Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios, using IoT application services available on SAP Cloud Platform. Jumpstart your development with IoT-specific templates and dedicated IoT controls and components to create and deploy your apps faster.

Use the SAP Web IDE SDK to enrich the development experience

SAP Web IDE comprises a modular framework that you can easily extend with custom features. Use the SDK to develop your SAP Web IDE features that add new app templates, tasks, and features, enable new integrations, and even extend the IDE with entire perspectives for additional development scenarios.

You can share your features with customers and partners.

Develop SAP HANA apps

The SAP HANA platform supports everything you need to build real-time data-driven applications. SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA provides a complete web-based set of tools for creating native applications for SAP HANA. Develop SAP HANA database models, calculation views, stored procedures, and more. Develop business logic with Node.js or XSJS, and top it up with SAPUI5.

Develop and extend SaaS and SAP S/4HANA

End-to-end development experience and integration of the different modules: create an SAP HANA data model, develop business logic, and consume the service with SAP Fiori UX, all in one integrated experience.

Under the hood: SAP Web IDE

The web-based SAP Web IDE can be used for developing and extending apps to be deployed on a variety of platforms, and use a variety of data sources, SAP (on-premise or cloud) or non-SAP. Enrich the functionality of the SAP Web IDE through a wide variety of existing features from SAP or other vendors, or use the SDK to supplement the SAP Web IDE functionality.
