SAP is using Enyo/Ares...

Hey Folks,

Have you guys noticed that SyBase (a SAP company) is using Ares for its appbuilder?

  • Hi - thanks for the notice !
    I'm really to surprise to see this.
    It looks good and pretty similar to what I've seen from the Ares2 so far.

    How did you recognize that this is build with/for Ares/Enyo ?
    I had a hard time to find any reference in the documents.
    Finally in here I read:
    http://infocenter.sybase.com/help/index.jsp?topic=/com.sybase.infocenter.dc02001.0100/doc/html/title.html
    Project files are generated and placed in \ares-project\hermes\filesystem\root\guest\. 
    So far I was not aware the anyone besides HP (and LG) is using Ares.

    What SAP/SyBase presents appears to be more advanced then what I've been seeing as Ares2 releases.
    Sure - I want to understand the full story.
  • I noticed it was Ares when I read their running instructions at:

    http://infocenter.sybase.com/help/topic/com.sybase.infocenter.dc02001.0100/doc/html/aro1382730360606.html

    It has this line:
    
    The AppBuilder Start page is displayed in a browser window with the following URL: http://127.0.0.1:9009/ide/ares/index.html.
    
    I've downloaded and run it and it looks great. As far as I've checked they are using Ares but their projects with the SAP UI5 thing is not Enyo. So you use Ares to develop non-enyo project.

    Still thats a major player using Ares which in my book counts as good. I plan to tweak Ares a bit to attract Mozilla and Firefox OS developers...
  • This is HOT stuff !

    Looks like Ares is so flexible to generate app in what language / library you want to use. I understand that Ares2 UI itself is build using Enyo. And the Ares2 that is discussed here in the forum generates Enyo app.
    For some reason SAP prefers to generate SAP UI5 code. :)
    I'd also would like to adapt Ares2 for my use in a way that it offers more "powerful / specialized" Enyo objects and not just the base types. But my intent would be to build upon Enyo and new Enyo derived kinds. So building a myEnyoExtention library and offer a Ares2 extention to build apps with Enyo + myEnyoExtention.

    Mozilla and Firefox OS developers could just use Enyo code for their apps - right?

    BTW - now that I know what to look for I found interesting new article (in German language) about this Appbuilder:

    still wonder how SAP plays together with HP and LG ?
    Is HP still driving Ares and LG driving webOS ?

    Yes we can and some are already using. It works pretty well. I am building a UI Kit based on Firefox OS Gaia Building Blocks. Think of it as an "alternative" to Onyx. Its not ready yet but it will be usable soon:

    That and a tweaked bootplate will give me a reusable template system for my Firefox OS developments. ;-)

    Ok. So you want to tweak Ares to also support your enyo-gaia-lib.
    That's fine. I would be happy to see that work.

    I've started to play with the new SAP AppBuilder earlier today, and discovered good old Enyo framework (used to power HP TouchPad's apps) under the hood.

    First I need to get the enyo-gaia-lib working... but it is more working than not. Its just that the Gaia Building Blocks is not the most friendly guy in the neighborhood.

    Now that I know how to do chrome stuff to style things around components I am refactoring everything....
