Getting Started

The Lianja App Builder can be considered as a meta-framework for building Desktop, Cloud and Mobile Apps. Before you go delving into writing large amounts of possibly unnecessary code we recommend that you read these pages first to better understand the development methodology behind building Apps in Lianja.



Additionally, you may want to spend some time watching the Lianja Video Tutorials to get an idea of how easy it is to build Apps in Lianja without having to write any code at all.

If you need to build Custom Sections, Custom Gadgets, Custom Canvas Sections or special UI components, Lianja comes with many built-in Classes each with a wide variety of Methods, Properties and Events as well as having HTML5/WebKit seamlessly integrated.

Lianja has its own cross-platform implementation of the Visual FoxPro 9 database and scripting language built-in as well as having JavaScript, PHP and Python embedded within it on all supported platforms; Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

The core Lianja UI framework is based on the Visual FoxPro UI classes that come standard with Visual FoxPro 9. Lianja extends these UI classes to provide a more modern appearance for the Apps you build and allows Visual FoxPro developers to leverage their existing skill-set and knowledge.

One of the great strengths of the Lianja UI Framework is that it can be used by any of the supported scripting languages: Visual FoxPro, JavaScript, PHP or Python.
