    Create EXE-Files in Windows

    Unfortunately, I am still not quite clear how to create an executable program in the form of an EXE (Windows) from the App Builder.

    You cannot create windows exes of a Lianja app like you would in VFP.

    You can however create an exe of a web app using electron. This is a standard built-in feature in Lianja app builder.

    Hi,

    Lianja has multiplatform approach. Some platforms have no EXE (web and mobile).

    If there is a need for EXE, the web/mobile app is finally build as an Electron app (link https://www.lianja.com/doc/index.php/Electron_Build ).
    Also some forum info: https://www.lianja.com/community/sho...swers-Electron

    Josip, you can build mobile executables using PhoneGap build. Electron is for building desktop exe of a web app.

    Hi,
    or you can build the app and run it from Lianja App Center...

    Lianja App Center is container of multiple app.

    You can run single app from desktop shortcut without show the App Center:
    eg:
    C:\lianja\bin\lianjaruntime.exe --debug --tenancy x: -a martinelli_articoli

    x is the drive
    martinelli_articoli is the app

    ciao

    Hi Schlingmeier,

    When I first started with Lianja, I was also confused about deploying executable applications.
    However, when I looked at how python, java etc works, it is sort of the same model.

    When you call a lianja desktop application, Lianja is the executable and your code, which are compiled objects, are called via the lianja executable.
    This model allows your Lianja code to interact with Python, javascript, php etc.

    So in a desktop app, you are deploying compiled objects, but not an executable file.

    You can create shortcuts to call your apps directly, or you can use the app center to control access to users.

    Hope that helps.

    Herb
