Low-code drag and drop tool speeds up UI design and development
The biggest challenge in app development today is to simplify app creation from design to code. To create mission-critical enterprise applications, low-code applications must prioritize the user experience (UX) by starting the application creation process with user interface (UI) design. App Builder achieves this by combining the essential components of the app creation process.
App Builder is now included with Ignite UI for Angular and Blazor web-based toolkits and removes the complexity of user interface design and development so developers can build business applications faster than ever before. App Builder is also included with Indigo.Design, a complete design-to-code platform that integrates user interface prototyping, design systems, user testing, app building, and code generation to eliminate design deliveries and reduce costly iterations – enabling true UX design and development collaboration.
“Infragistics Ultimate 21.2 radically accelerates application design and development with the addition of App Builder and the introduction of Blazor code generation,” says Jason Beres, SVP Developer Tools, at Infragistics. “Now, designers and developers don’t need to pre-select the code they want to output – after the builds are complete, they can choose Blazor or Angular.”
When working in App Builder, designers or developers can quickly launch their apps using design files from Sketch or Adobe XD, mapped directly to over 65 Infragistics Ignite UI controls. Or they can choose from a library of pre-built app templates or responsive screen layouts and then customize them using the UI Controls Toolbox. Everything designed results in production ready HTML, TypeScript and CSS for Angular and Blazor (with React and Web Components coming soon). Developers can also see the code in real time as they are being created. When they’re ready, they can upload it to the GitHub repository or download an entire zip file of the app to use in their favorite Visual Studio or IDE.
Compatibility with .NET 6
Infragistics Ultimate 21.2 also includes compatibility with Visual Studio 2022 and .NET 6, a Microsoft milestone in the .NET software development framework and ecosystem, originally released in 2002 and used by millions of developers worldwide to create web and desktop applications. Since the first release of .NET, Infragistics has been offering the world’s best controls and tools, with powerful features, capabilities, and performance.
