The Basic Concept

Make yourself familiar with the basic concepts of the Widget editor.


  • Open the Widget library "widget-exercises"
  • Create a new widget in the Widget library “widget-exercises”
  • Add some “Hello world” in the HTML area and add some formatting in the CSS/Less area
    (Always use CSS classes instead of IDs, so .my-formatting instead of #my-object)
  • Save the Widget
  • Move your widget to a new library
  • Make some modifications (e.g. just add a space) and move the copy back to the library “widget-exercises”
  • Use your newly created Widget in an existing app
    (do not forget to refresh the browser to get the updated list of Widgets)
  • etc.
