OpenUI5 sample app using the UI5 Build and Development Tooling.

Prerequisites

Getting started

  1. Clone this repository and navigate into it

    git clone https://github.com/SAP/openui5-sample-app.git
    cd openui5-sample-app
  2. Install all dependencies

    npm install
  3. Start a local server and run the application (http://localhost:8080/index.html)

    ui5 serve -o index.html

Testing

  • Run ESLint code validation
    npm run lint
  • Start a local server and execute the tests automatically after every change
    npm run watch
  • Run ESLint, start a local server and run the tests in CI mode
    npm test

Building

Option 1: Standard preload build

  1. Execute the build
    ui5 build -a
  2. Run the result
    1. Install an HTTP server like zeit/serve (Note: You can use any HTTP server. If you use zeit/serve, please use version 6 as gzip support has been removed in newer versions.)
      # Install zeit/serve
      npm install --global serve@6
    2. Start an HTTP server for the newly created /dist directory
      serve ./dist
    3. Open the app at http://localhost:5000/index.html

Option 2: Self-contained build

  1. (Optional) Remove previous build results
    rm -rf ./dist
  2. Execute the self-contained build to create a bundle with all of your applications runtime dependencies
    ui5 build self-contained -a
  3. Run the result
    1. Install an HTTP server like zeit/serve (Note: You can use any HTTP server. If you use zeit/serve, please use version 6 as gzip support has been removed in newer versions.)
      # Install zeit/serve in version 6, as gzip support has been removed in newer versions
      npm install --global serve@6
    2. Start an HTTP server for the newly created /dist directory
      serve ./dist
    3. Open the app at http://localhost:5000/index.html

Working with local dependencies

For local development of your applications' dependencies (like OpenUI5 libraries) you can link them by using Yarn. This will allow you to make changes to your applications dependencies locally and see the impact in your application immediately.

Note: Currently only Yarn understands the workspace package setting used in the OpenUI5 repository. If you do not plan to work with OpenUI5 you might as well use npm. But keep in mind that linking the same module with npm and Yarn might lead to issues. Also, Yarn can't work with links created by npm and vice versa. See FAQ: What's the thing with yarn? for details.

Prerequisites

Preparation

The following needs to be done just once per setup.

  1. Clone the OpenUI5 repository and navigate into it Note: The UI5 version must be 1.52.5 or higher, you can check that in the root package.json file
    git clone https://github.com/SAP/openui5.git
    cd openui5
  2. Install all dependencies (this also links all OpenUI5 libraries between each other)
    yarn
  3. Make all projects available as global links. Note: The OpenUI5 project uses wsrun to link all libraries with one command. See Linking Projects for general information about project linking.
    yarn run link-all

Linking

  1. In your application directory: Link the required OpenUI5 libraries
    yarn link @openui5/sap.ui.core
    yarn link @openui5/sap.m
    yarn link @openui5/themelib_sap_belize

You can now make changes in your local OpenUI5 repository and see the impact directly when serving or building your application.

Unlinking

To return to using the OpenUI5 npm packages

  1. Remove the links
    yarn unlink @openui5/sap.ui.core
    yarn unlink @openui5/sap.m
    yarn unlink @openui5/themelib_sap_belize
  2. Re-install the packages from the registry
    yarn
