In case you missed the SAP Fiori elements hands-on session (IIS160) during the excitement of TechEd 2021, I have great news: we have made all the material available so you can do the exercises on your own. I’m especially excited about this because these exercises allow you to try out some of the latest innovations in SAP Fiori elements and SAP Fiori tools, so we want as many people as possible to have access to the exercises.
To complete the app, you will need access to SAP Business Application Studio, e.g. using a trial account on SAP Business Technology Platform.
In the exercises you will learn
How to generate an SAP Fiori elements app from a local CAP project
How it is now super easy to enhance and change the generated app using the SAP Fiori tools application modeler – not only, but also to comply with best practices in design
How the flexible programming model allows you to leverage building blocks to extend the app and still benefit from standard application behavior like draft or side-effects, all orchestrated by the SAP Fiori elements framework
The session consists of seven exercises in which you will build a travel app:
Generating an SAP Fiori Elements App
Enhancing the UI by Using the SAP Fiori tools Page Map
Fine-Tuning the UI
Flexible Programming Model: Extending the App with Fiori Elements Building Blocks
Adding a Micro Chart to the Table Building Block
Flexible Programming Model: Using the Chart Building Block
Flexible Programming Model: Changing the Edit Flow by Implementing a Controller Extension
We designed the session to fit into the TechEd timeframe of around two hours, assuming you already have the trial account set up and know what you are doing. Actual results may vary. Since it is now self-paced, there is no need to rush. Having some experience with SAP Fiori elements and SAP Fiori tools is helpful, but not necessary. The purpose of the session is to introduce you to these solutions, especially the new functionality that we have introduced in the past year or so.
