Extending Fliplet with code

Creating custom components on top of Fliplet

Security image

Fliplet’s open source structure supports the addition of code to create the custom features. You can ask Fliplet to create the custom extension for you or you can do it yourself. Fliplet uses HTML, CSS and Javascript for front end app features and Javascript for backend integrations. Learn more about extending the platform below.

Fliplet Developer Services

The easiest way to create custom extensions is to ask us to do it for you. We have the advantage of a deep understanding of the platform and capabilities. We may even be able to suggest an alternate way of implementing a feature without needing any custom code in the first place. To discuss Fliplet Developer Services please contact our sales team by emailing: hello@fliplet.com.

Fliplet Studio Developer Options

When creating your app in Fliplet Studio it is possible to add code directly to the app through the Developer Options. The Developer Options work in a similar way to JSFiddle or CodePen if you’re familiar with these tools. There are defined areas where you can add HTML, CSS and Javascript to your apps and you can import code libraries directly.

Fliplet includes JQuery, Bootstrap and Lodash libraries by default. The developer options also support preprocessors like SASS and templating engines like Handlebars.

Interacting with the platform (APIs and data integrations)

Fliplet offers Javascript and REST APIs to allow you to interact with app components, datasources, screens and many other app features. For interactions with third party databases Fliplet offers a Data Integration Service (DIS). Once you’ve created a security token the DIS gives users the ability to synchronise data with Fliplet servers.

You can find a detailed description of all the APIs and Data Integration Service on Fliplet’s developer site - developers.fliplet.com.

Creating custom components, menus and appearance themes

Fliplet even allows you to create your own prefab components, menus, and themes. Fliplet has an open source repository of code hosted on GitHub here. To assist with development we provide a command line interface tool that runs on Node.js. For advice on how to set up developer tools and work with components please visit our developer site - developers.fliplet.com

"I love the fact that fliplet offers a code-free option as well as pro/developer options. The team is absolutely fantastic and will help with any & everything within 24 hours. It’s easy to use for building enterprise mobile and web applications. The fact that I could automatically deliver modifications and updates to the app as I was building it is one of the best features for me (none of the, “once you’re done you’re done you can’t edit” pressure)."
