Extending applications with Marketplace: Your one stop shop for custom components

Extending applications with Marketplace: Your one stop shop for custom components

3 September 2020, last update 18 June 2021 2 min read

This blog is about the 'Extending Applications with Marketplace: Your One-Stop-Shop for Custom Components' video, presented by Dave McLeish from Mendix. You can watch the video here.

As we all know the Mendix App Store is the place to go to find tools that help make and deliver quality apps in a speedy fashion. The Mendix team have been working over the last few months to evolve the App store and over the next coming months, we will see the transition to Mendix Marketplace.

The Marketplace will consist of the App Store, App Services and the 3D Viewer and will be a source of enhanced add-ons that contains both free and paid for content.Low Code and High Speed go hand in hand, but how to avoid Code Mistakes?  We built the Application Code Reviewer for Mendix. Check it out, download the  mini book and get going!

What are App Services? 

App Services are new add-ons, that are “like API’s on steroids”. Developers will be able to make use of valuable add ons, collections of web services, APIs and UI to improve their apps. There will also be out of the box solutions that have been created to meet industry specific scenarios that can be configured to deliver what is required. Using App Services, Mendix is looking to bring a greater depth of industry specific know-how to its clients to better meet their needs and to enable all makers and partners to supply free, and in the future, commercially valuable premium apps.

At CLEVR we are currently in close collaboration with Siemens to develop a standard Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software product that will be launched in Q3 2020. It will be the first partner-developed product within Mendix Industry Solutions and will be available in Marketplace.

What is the 3D Viewer? 

This is a service that will provide a 3D experience for low code app development. The service can be utilised at various stages across a products developmental lifecycle and is expected to be used across a wide selection of industries.

The service is integrated with the Studio Pro modelling experience such as the page designer, preview, microflows and toolbox. The viewer will also have the capability to stream 3D for upload and download.

 

What does this mean for us? 

The App Store remains the heart of the system but we will see a new Marketplace design rolled out with upcoming Mendix releases. There will be a growth in self-service features for Mendix makers such as the ability to increase cloud resources for app deployments, increasing Mendix mastery with new Academy content, App services that are tailored to industry specific use cases and out of the box solutions that can quickly start up projects and apps. It is also the platform where app services created by users can be sold and Mendix will look after all of the painful details to make life easier.

Overall I found this session very interesting and it highlights how much effort Mendix are putting into developing and improving the Mendix community. This new Marketplace will offer new services, an enhanced user experience and will ultimately lead to new content that Mendix makers can utilise to build quality and efficient apps at pace.
