With the Platform SDK and Model SDK, you can do the following:
Basically, the Platform SDK and Model SDK allow you to automate any tedious or error-prone task. If you imagine it, there’s probably a way to do it via these SDKs.
npm init --yes
npm install -g typescript
npm install mendixmodelsdk mendixplatformsdk when @types/when --save
For detailed information on getting started with the Platform SDK and Model SDK, see How to Set Up Your Development Environment.
Move your legacy applications into a cloud-based, modern technology. The Platform SDK empowers you to build legacy software transformation tools that target the Mendix Platform.
If you are looking to improve your existing app models, it can be hard to figure out where the complexity is. Mendix models are completely open and accessible, making it possible to automate model quality analysis.
The SDK allows you to export your app model and take it anywhere. So take any page, microflow, or other model element and transform it into code, documentation, or scaffolding for a testing tool.
Updating your existing Mendix app models can sometimes be tedious to do by hand. Write a script to execute all the boring changes automatically. Focus on the creative and fun parts of your app!
The Mendix Model SDK provides you with a whole new way of interacting with your app. Through this API, you get full access to all the aspects of your app model, enabling you to both read from and write to it. We have opened up our metamodel, which is a detailed description of how all Mendix app models are structured.
To explore the inner-workings of Mendix apps, see the Mendix Platform SDK Reference Documentation.
