App Builder Guided Tour
The Lianja App Builder is all about the Rapid Application Development of data-centric business Apps. It has a high performance SQL database engine embedded in it.
It organizes its UI into “workspaces”. The modebar down the left hand side contains a strip of vertical buttons which when clicked causes the UI to switch to that particular workspace. No matter what workspace is selected the modebar is visible allowing you to switch between workspaces with one click.
If you are in the Apps workspace and are editing code, switching to another workspace will automatically save your edits and dynamically compile the code then refresh the UI in the Pages workspace for you.
