Create Multi-Channel User Experiences with the Mendix Platform

Skip navigation

Rapid meets responsive design.

Delivering a great user experience is a crucial component to any digital initiative. But even expert JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS developers say it’s time consuming to create great, consistent experiences across form factors and mobile platforms. The Atlas UI Framework addresses this challenge, while remaining standards-based, open and extensible. We put responsive UI design in the hands of rapid developers through a fully open source, responsive framework integrated into the Mendix visual development environment. With Mendix, even non-designers can quickly create rich, great looking apps that automatically adapt to all device form factors.

Features that work hard for your app

  • Navigations Layouts

    Layouts control how users navigate through your app, with top-bar or side-bar main and sub menus. A set of navigation layouts for each device type (phone, tablet or desktop) comes bundled with every theme.

  • Page Templates

    We provide out-of-the-box templates for a wide range of page types, including Overview, Master-detail, Dashboard, Location and Wizard. These templates are available for every type of device. Our UI framework also comes with a fully responsive Layout Grid so you can define specific layout behavior for smartphone, tablet and desktop.

  • Building Blocks

    Speed development of custom pages using building blocks: assemblies of multiple, pre-configured widgets that can you can drag and drop into pages to implement common UI patterns, such as headers, timelines, and wizards.

  • Widgets

    Further build out your pages by adding additional widgets from the rich set of user interface elements that come with the platform, as well as an ever-expanding set of widgets found in the Mendix App Store.

  • Design Properties

    Widgets are styled automatically by the theme, but can be customized on a case-by-case basis if styling or placement isn’t quite right using design properties.

Low-code meets mobile

The benefits of low code development – quick time to value, expanding the talent base of developers, and less rework – are of incredibly high value in the high growth areas of mobile and multi-experience apps. With Mendix, developing mobile apps is as straightforward as developing a web app. You’ll tap into the React Native framework to deploy both iOS and Android applications from a single codebase. For apps that also have a web interface, you’ll have a single model, datastore, and shared microflows for all channels.
