In this post, I would like to share with you, how to develop and run SAP Fiori apps on your local computer with Visual Studio Code and NodeJS. In that way, you can explore, learn, develop SAP UI5 and Fiori Elements on your computer.
Note: Version of SAP UI is important. Some versions does not load!
Pay Attention: Module name is project1, therefore a new folder will be created under workspace folder with project1 name. We need to run npm commands in this folder!
Project1 is created and info is above.
Now open a terminal screen.
We need to be in project folder to run npm commands. we run "cd project1" to change folder in terminal screen.
We are now in project folder and we need to run "npm update" command.
Project is ready to run.
We need to run "npm start" to start our server. A new browser page will open.
Now go to new browser page and change columns display settings and click "Go" to load data.
That is all. Now you have a working Fiori elements example with oData service. You can explore and enhance that app as you wish. If you want, you can create a new project for SAP UI5. Steps are exactly same, just choose SAPUI5 freestyle for application type.
