The purpose of this blog is to explain how to work with Visual Studio Code SAPUI5 Extension, at least that was my first thought 🙂 I am an author of the extension. After getting some experience with people who are trying to use the extension with questionable success, I've decided to share the thoughts which were in mind when developing the extension. In order to do that there is a long journey into technical details, many complex programming terms, principles and more.
This blog is for software developers who cares about the code and people who reads and supports it. I will explain (or at least try to do it) how to develop maintainable, reusable, flexible and readable software product within SAPUI5 framework. There will be a lot of theory followed by practical examples, including comparison with other programming languages, diagrams. It will be hard to read and understand for most of the developers, and even harder to accept it. Many will disagree and argue, but that part is always there.
Taking in mind that SAP invested in typescript for UI5 a lot, following guidelines below will prepare you to start using it without any problems.
Everything that will be discussed here is my own experience and opinion.
All topics below will be mixed with info about VSCode SAPUI5 Extension and how exactly it supports developers.
