Trying AppMaker

Resultado de probando

A few weeks ago, Mozilla published AppMaker, a new way of creating web apps for FirefoxOS, and a serious warning about their intentions: easify things for non developers. Today I am trying it with a very simple app, just for testing how it works!

First, let’s add a “Header”:

Next, let’s add a text input box, where I can introduce my own text:

Introducción de texto

Introducción de texto

You can see a blue channel waiting for an action. So the next step is to insert a Text control, what you traditionally know as “label”, and it’s the place where the text should be reproduced.

Etiqueta

Etiqueta

Now, We have to join the blue exit with the label. To do this, you should mark the blue channel as the enter of the label (in the left part), and just mark the blue channel on “set value”:

And here we have theis simple app:

Selección de canal

Selección de canal

Let’s make a test to verify it’s working, by just writting text on the input field, and so the label will change!

When you run the app, you can see the blue line moving from the exit to the enter, before getting the result:

This app created is very simple, and it’s only a small example. You can try here:

I hope you like it and give AppMajer a try, because I think a lot of people will like it!

So, tell me, …. what have you already donde with AppMaker?

Have a nice day!
