Ozri 2014: Getting started with the ArcGIS Web AppBuilder
We covered numerous topics during our presentation, from an introductory view of the designer right through to a high level discussion on building custom widgets. The key aspects of the presentation included:
- Designing your App
Simon demonstrated the ease of designing an application using the Web AppBuilder designer, highlighting the sophistication of the built-in widgets that are already in the product. Todd then highlighted some of these widgets with an editing workflow performed on an iPad.
- Sharing, Publishing, Securing
Simon illustrated how ArcGIS Online can be used to share web applications via the concept of templates, allowing a single application shell to be created from which other delegated staff can configure applications to target their specific use-cases.
Todd discussed the concepts of Web AppBuilder customisation from the perspective of designing new themes, representing the layout and style of the application, as well as widgets for delivering business logic. Simon also demonstrated the simplicity of composing web apps that integrate with geoprocessing tasks.
