Why should you use Style Guide and EnterpriseManager to create applications?

Why should you use Style Guide and EnterpriseManager to create applications?

  

- Consistent (but customizable) look and feel

- Single sign-on

- Patterns will make maintenance cheaper

- Faster development

- Better usability

 

To use the Style Guide template:

 

1 - download and publish EnterpriseManager (if not already published)

2 - download and publish the Style Guide

3 - go to http://<yourserver>/template/Help_StyleGuideOverview.aspx and follow the instructions

Agreed, however the biggest problem with the style-guide is (after using it a couple of times)
is the unnecessary entities, pages, structures, become a burden and I would remove them asap.
but then it will cost me some time to get a working espace again.

For example, a stripped down version would be handy for experience developers.
(which is also updated ofcourse when a new styleguide comes out)

Hi Joost,

 

Thanks for the feedback. You are right, the Style Guide has a lot of training material and tips that are very good for first users but that might get in the way as you get more experienced. We have had that feedback and we will do something about it in the future (e.g. your suggestion is a very good idea).

 

For now what you can do is to create your own striped down version of the template and just leave there the stuff you use more frequently.

 

Cheers,
