Design and Build Apps Up to 10x Faster

Indigo.Design App Builder is a new design-to-code platform with the industry's first web-based, WYSIWYG IDE. App Builder improves designer-to-dev collaboration and accelerates app delivery while eliminating UI and UX bugs.

Indigo.Design App Builder has the tools you'd expect to deliver productivity to you and your team:

  • Web-based IDE that is similar to tools you use today, like Visual Studio, Sketch, Figma, or Adobe XD.
  • A toolbox full of UI components from the Indigo Design System, which map directly to our Ignite UI component libraries.
  • Property editor panels for configuring components, and setting data binding properties.
  • Hierarchical views of your master-pages and sub-pages, complete with a navigable outline of your screen design.
  • Data sources options that let you connect to any REST data source, or upload a JSON file.
  • Theme options including built-in themes and a custom theme builder to match any customer or brand experience you require.

Learn More about App Builder and how it can elevate your productivity, impress your boss on how quickly you can build new experiences, and how you can deliver the best customer experiences with the least amount of effort.
