Application Packaging Standard

Development Tools

Application developers can use the following APS specific tools in addition to universal IDEs, such as those from the group of JetBrains tools or Eclipse:

  • APS PHP Runtime helps developing application provisioning logic.
  • Command Line Tools are needed to validate, localize, and build APS packages in the command line. This requires preliminary installation of APS PHP Runtime.
  • APS Fiddle helps to develop and validate HTML and Javascript code including whole view files or parts of them.
  • APS Testing Framework helps to develop automated tests for APS Applications.


APS Fiddle is available remotely on the APS development site. The other tools are used in the local environment, for example, in a Windows PC, Linux workstation, or Mac workstation.
