Download source code


Is it possible to download the source code (css, html, java script) of an App built in the Backendless UI builder and run the app elswhere, or is Backendless a “locked in” builder (like Bubble is, for instance) ?


Hi Alex,

Yes, it is definitely possible to get all the code created by UI Builder. To do this:

  1. Publish your UI Container (it groups all the pages, styles and logic for a UI app) into a directory
  2. Navigate to the directory from (1) on the Files screen of the Backendless console (it is located in the BACKEND section
  3. Zip the directory and download the zip file. The file contains all the html/css/js for your UI app. You can upload the files to any web host and run the app from there.
