‘All in One’ studio to develop for Convertigo Platform
Convertigo Studio enables the mobile developer to program all the layers of Convertigo Platform within the same integrated environment. Within Studio the programmer can:
- Setup Connectors to back end systems
- Create Transactions to define data exchange with back end systems
- Create Sequences to implement server side business logic
- Create Mobile User interface, screen flow and local business logic
- Define test cases and run the mobile application or any of it’s sub components
Once the project developped, it can deployed on on premises Convertigo Server or on our elastic Cloud services. As Convertigo Studio includes a local single user Convertigo Server, all projects can be tested locally before deployment.
As submitting Mobile applications to application Store such as Apple’s App store can be a fastidious process, You can use the Convertigo Player mobile app to run your application directly on the target devices.
Based On Eclipse Technology
Convertigo Studio is an Eclipse plugin, shipped with a Convertigo branded and tailored Eclipse environment. This way, when you download and install Convertigo Studio you will be ready to develop your mobile projects immediately without having to install additional software.
As Convertigo is Eclipsed based , you can use any other Eclipse plugin to enhance your developer experience. In the same way, Convertigo Studio integrates perfectly with source control systems such as SVN, CVS and GIT.
No other software needed for cloud Cross-Platform builds!
By default, Convertigo Studio brings every thing you need to build your Mobile applications. You dont’t have to install any addtionnal SDK to build your mobile applications as the Studio will use our Cloud based mobile builder to build iOS, Android and Windows Phone apps from the same project. In this way you can even build iOS apps from a Windows machine !
On the other hand, Studio also supports local builds for those who do not want external ressources to be used while building mobile apps. In this case, you will need to install all the required SDKs (Android SDK, Xcode, Windows Phone SDK) on your development workstation.
Automatically Included Mobile Frameworks
Convertigo Studio will automatically include in your client mobile project the required frameworks. By default, mobile projects are based on jQuery Mobile UI and the Convertigo Templating Framework (CTF) for databinding from Convertigo Server.
