Import existing jQuery Mobile web app?

Post by Todd R. »

I have an existing mobile web app which I created a few years ago using jQuery Mobile. Is there an easy way to just import that into Appery.io, then add things like push notifications and then publish to the app store and play store? All my database connection already work etc.. I want to build a newer, better app from scratch using Ionic within appery but I'm wondering if importing my existing jQuery web app would be a good start. Thanks in advance.

Hello Todd,

Have you created that application using Appery.io platform or outside it?
Sorry, but it is not possible to import your existing project to the Appery.io platform and keep the Visual Builder working, because it uses proprietary structure and components. But you can import all your files (HTML/CSS/JS/images) into sources of the project to view them as an application: https://docs.appery.io/docs/appbuilde...

First I want to thank you for your response. I’m sorry but I am a bit confused, for example... What is the purpose of the import if you are unable to import an existing app? You mentioned that I could import it but then the visual designer won’t work but I could view it as an app. I’m sure I’m confused because I am new to your product.

You can import all source files into the project and they will work. But you won't have the ability to use almost all Appery.io features like Visual Editor (drag'n'drop components https://docs.appery.io/docs/appbulder...), data services, etc.
So it is not a 100% import the project with all features of Appery.io platform.
Please sign up with a trial account to test the platform, you will get these ideas
