On 21st of March 2015 the first SAP Inside Track Frankfurt (#sitFRA) took place. The event, nicely located and well organised by Hendrik Neumann, Christian Braukmüller and Tobias Trapp, was real fun.
Half of the session deal with good „old“ SAP ABAP technology based stuff, the other half with New-SAP topics like OpenUI5, SAPUI5, SAP Fiori and HANA Cloud Platform. A good mixture (have a look at the full agenda of sitFRA 2015) .
As I’m pregnant since a long time to modify the UI5 Boilerplate (UI5BP) so that it is SAP Fiori compliant and can be integrated into the famous SAP Fiori Launchpad, I took the chance to talk about this topic and modify the original UI5 Boilerplate in a live coding session and create a Fiori Edition. UI5 Boilerplate Fiori Edition was born.
A Launchpad is now part of the UI5 Boilerplate, similar to the famous Fiori Launchpad. In contrast to the Fiori Launchpad it is part of the App itself and enables Launchpad Navigation within the App.
As before the navigation items, here Tiles, are generated automatically from the menu definition file (menu.json). So there is nothing special necessary to switch and use the Launchpad, simply update to current version on UI5BP.
The next major release of OpenUI5 is out (see official post on OpenUI5 Blog). Let’s see which new features were added in the past 3 months and how useful they are. To do so, I added a dedicated page „New Features v1.22“ with some of the new controls to the UI5 Boilerplate and update the „UI5 Boilerplate Demo Website“, so you can see them „live“ and „in action“. As always we focus on mobile usage.
MYPRO website has a new Responsive Design. It is fully responsive and looks great on all platforms (on desktop in browser, on tablets and smartphones), different screen sizes and orientations (portrait and landscape mode). The new design in technically based on Bootstrap.
We happy that you can now fully enjoy our content and easily navigate across pages and posts on smartphones.
