We have decided to stop the maintenance of the open source version of Build. Build is still available and sold as a cloud product from SAP, with regular updates and new features. It’s available at www.build.me. Its open source version and all the files in this public GitHub repository will no longer be maintained.
Overview of BUILD
BUILD is an open-source, cloud-based, and social platform that enables users with no UI development knowledge to create fully interactive prototypes. Without writing a line of code, you can perform user research, design the UI, include realistic data, and share the prototypes with colleagues. Developers can use the code of the prototype as a jumpstart to quickly create the app.
For a more detailed description of BUILD, see the BUILD Overview.

The BUILD community wishes to dedicate BUILD to the memory of our recently deceased colleague and friend Luan O’Carroll.
