Prerequisites

SAP Fiori tools is an extension pack available for Visual Studio Code and SAP Business Application Studio that is designed to increase the efficiency of SAP Fiori elements app development. SAP Fiori is SAP’s user experience, intended to provide end-users with apps that are role-based, adaptive, coherent, simple, and delightful. SAP Fiori elements provides predefined page types for SAP Fiori development, allowing users to quickly create SAPUI5 apps while taking advantage of the user interface provided by SAP. SAP Fiori tools allows users to easily generate SAP Fiori elements apps, modify the app’s functionality, generate new pages, and preview the application with both backend and mock data.

In this tutorial group, you will be using SAP Fiori tools to create an app featuring a list of objects, with additional pages that provide more detailed information about the items in the list. You will be able to preview this app using real backend data provided by SAP, as well as mock data.

To get started, this tutorial will introduce you to Visual Studio Code and tell you how to download the required extensions from the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.

To begin your set up, download Visual Studio Code from the Visual Studio Code website: https://code.visualstudio.com/download
