Client actions for web apps.
Frontend (App Interfaces)
Development Environment Release 11

It'd be great to have something similar to client actions in a mobile app for the web app. I feel like some of the logic we have in the screen actions is not that complex and has to be done on the client side to speed up the UI. We sure have some javascript capabilities, but it's not that good comparing to client actions in mobile.

Just an idea: Basically mobile app is also web app, so may be to combine these development paths. 

Sampsa, indeed, however, some parts of the mobile apps would be useless in web. I'm sure there's a way to smartly combine them though. 

Good idea, man! 

Mendix has this feature so this should be implemented asap haha

HI Roman,

We started working on your idea, merging mobile and web in a smart way as described, so I set the status to “Working on it”. We expect it to be ready later this year (although it should only be available to new web applications). I’ll post an update once it’s done!

Thanks again for your great idea!

Hi Tiago, it's very exiting! Looking forward to use this feature in the future.

This is very much needed.

Hi Roman,

On October 02nd we released a new generation of Web Apps that address your idea about client actions on Web Apps. You can read all about Reactive Web Apps on our forum post.

Thanks again for your idea!
