Build Stunning Apps without Compromise
Part of the KonyOne platform, KonyOne Studio is a complete, standards-based, self-contained environment for the entire software development lifecycle. Whether your business is targeting consumers or employees, choosing to build your mobile and desktop web apps with the KonyOne Studio means your apps will always be enterprise-ready and future-proofed for what’s ahead.
Many Kony customers have found that applications written in the Kony environment require 90% less amount of code than with alternative approaches. KonyOne Studio lets designers and developers collaborate with flexible and easy-to-use visual design tools. Fast app design and customization is enabled with end-to-end SDLC tools and APIs. There's no need for post-generation code editing because KonyOne Studio gives you complete access to underlying capabilities with a productive user interface and world-class tools.
KonyOne Studio Product Features
Whether you’re building websites to promote your brand or creating apps to empower your employees on their own devices, the KonyOne Studio is the key to speedy, multi-channel development. Supporting the myriad of different devices, screen sizes, browsers, development languages, OS updates, new and dramatic changes in technology, and multiple toolkits is all handled for you with the KonyOne platform.
Kony one Studio provides developers a comprehensive and visually-oriented integrated development environment (IDE) with full flexibility to script as little or as much as they prefer based on the specific needs of each application. With built-in cross-channel support, KonyOne Studio eliminates the need to have separate teams developing in silos at a significant cost.
KonyOne Studio provides an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface and a simple scripting language for those parts of your project requiring high performance, lightweight code and a small memory footprint. The language is used to access device capabilities via native language client libraries developed by Kony for each specific platform.
The Kony API is an abstraction layer that hides the complexity of the underlying platforms. Kony continually adds to the API as device capabilities evolve.
Kony exposes all the richness of the underlying devices through channel-specific properties. Developers can take advantage of features unique to one device without affecting support for devices without those features. Each widget exposes configurable properties that are set through the IDE. Some are common to all platforms and some are specific to one platform. These can be set in the IDE and take effect only on the target platform. For example, certain visual effects such as “glow” can be set for iPhone buttons only and not for any other device.
Foreign Function Interface (FFI)
KonyOne Studio integrates a comprehensive set of developer tools to help minimize rework and maintain focus. Only 15% of a typical Kony development project involves writing code because we provide so many powerful graphical development tools. If desired, you also have complete power to write custom code. You can also call third party libraries and extend the API using Kony's Foreign Function Interface. In the KonyOne Studio developers design their UI, define the services the application needs and then connect the UI to the services.
Visually design with intuitive UI and UX tools to build beautiful apps in a single design environment. Seeing how forms will look for different channels on their native emulators –without needing to compile a whole app— streamlines the UX design process and makes ‘what if?' analysis and A/B testing fast and accessible to developers and non-developers alike. Visual event flowcharting and data mapping make connecting design elements with actions simple and easy to modify.
Design tools include:
Cross-channel widgets include:
Developers have instant, dynamic access to a full suite of development tools to speed app-to-market time. Productivity tools include:
