Boost Your App Development with Our Latest Feature: Layouts

by on December 18, 2023

We are excited to share some fantastic news with you! Our team has been working tirelessly to bring you the latest and most requested feature in Backendless UI Builder – the Layouts feature. Today, we’re proud to announce that Layouts is now immediately available for all our users!

What are Layouts?

Layouts are a groundbreaking addition to the Backendless UI Builder that significantly simplifies the app development process. They allow you to create a consistent structure for your app that can be reused across multiple pages. This means you define your app’s layout once – including elements like navigation bars, footers, and side menus – and apply it across your entire application.

Why Layouts?

  • Streamlined Development: Say goodbye to redundant work. With Layouts, you no longer need to recreate common elements for each new page. This means faster development and more time to focus on the unique features of your app.
  • Consistency and Uniformity: Providing a consistent user interface is key to a great user experience. Layouts ensure that your app maintains a uniform look and feel across all pages.
  • Customization and Control: Whether you need a simple layout or something more complex, Layouts offer the flexibility to create exactly what you need. You can start from a predefined template or build a custom layout from scratch.
  • Dynamic Interaction: Layouts are not just static templates. They come with their own data model, allowing dynamic interactions and ensuring that your app responds intelligently to user inputs and navigation.

Getting Started with Layouts

To start using Layouts, navigate to the LAYOUTS tab in the UI Builder. From there, you can choose a predefined layout or create a new one tailored to your app’s needs. Assigning these layouts to your pages is just a click away, bringing a whole new level of ease and efficiency to your development process. For more in-depth information about Layouts, see the product documentation.

We Want to Hear from You!

Your feedback is crucial in helping us make Backendless even better. We encourage you to try out the new Layouts feature and share your thoughts and experiences with us. Whether it’s a success story, a challenge you faced, or a suggestion for improvement, your insights are invaluable.

Happy Coding!
