Port Mobile to Web or Web to Mobile
Frontend (App Interfaces)
Platform Server Release Oct.2019 CP1

Once in  a while after developing a mobile app the client asks for a web version as well.

It would be amazing if there would be a "port"  functionality that (partially, as far as logical/possible) would port the native app into a web one.

Understandably after the port manual labor will be needed, but just having the basic framework/skeleton/action set up would save a lot of time.


Why not follow the 4 Layer Canvas and add those Actions or other stuff in a Business Core and then use it for both UI (web and mobile)?

Abílio ,

We tend to do so wherever possible. The port would be for the elements that are mobile or web specific.

Hi Eric,

Great idea. We're currently working to bring most mobile feature to new web apps, and along with that it will be a lot easier to share content between mobile and web channels.

Thank you and stay tuned,

Tiago Simões

Hi Tiago, 

Great to hear so! That sounds brilliant and I for one can't wait to see what you guys come up with

Hi Eric,

On October 02nd we released a new generation of Web Apps that are much closer to the Mobile model. You can read all about Reactive Web Apps on our forum post.

With the introduction of Reactive Web Apps, you can now convert Mobile modules to Reactive, being able to reuse as much as you wish from the original module.

Feel free to experiment with the new version and let us know if there's something we can improve.

Thanks again for sharing your idea!
