Bonitasoft Community contribution widgets

This is a repository that provide a place for the Community to build and share their custom widgets.

You can browse the list of widgets available in the src/widgets folder. Follow the instructions below to understand how to setup your environment and deploy the widgets.

A framework is provided to start building custom widgets for the UI Designer. It includes build, test and deployment steps and supports multiple widgets.

The build step will create a dist folder with resulting directive and a zip file directly importable in the UI designer or via command line using deploy step.


  • Node >= v6.0.0
  • Npm >= v4.2.0

Getting started

Set up your local node project:

npm install


Build all the widgets and create a ZIP version of each of them in the folder dist/

npm run build


Launch unit-tests on all the widgets

npm test [ -- --watch ]

--watch Watch source files and launch tests whenever a source file changes


You can deploy widgets developed in widget seed directly in a running UI Designer.

npm run deploy -- --widget <widget name> [--host <ui designer url>] [--force] [--watch]

--widget [required] Widget directory name to deploy
--host UI Designer URL. Default value:
--force Override the widget if it already exist at destination --watch Watch source files and redeploy widget whenever a source file changes

e.g. npm run deploy -- --widget customWidget --host --force --watch

You can also deploy all the widgets at once.

npm run deployAll -- [--host <ui designer url>] [--force]
