DMXzone Extensions Roadmap 2015

March 17, 2015

What to expect from us this year

It's already March and we're sure that you are excited to find out what we've been cooking for you this year so in this article you'll try to summarize our undergoing developments and future releases. There is a great reason why some of the extensions that you've been waiting for take longer than expected. Our developers have been working on a brand new, out of space server side framework called DMXzone Connect, which will put an end to the server behaviors era and will replace them fully.

The Story

Undergoing Development

DMXzone Visual App Designer - Based on Framework 7, DMXzone Visual App Designer displays the structure of your app fully visually in Dreamweaver, allows you to add and edit elements in the new editable Live View, add only elements valid for the current context, move around elements while their structure stays intact, and many more. Visual design, drag & drop app building, context oriented and editable live view integration are just a few of the awesome features added in the upcoming DMXzone Visual App Designer.


DMXzone Cordova Builder - Allows you to define, generate and build your mobile apps based on Apache Cordova (also known as PhoneGap) and fully empower and replace the old deprecated Dreamweaver PhoneGap build.

DMXzone Connect - We'll be introducing a new generation server side framework that will provide the glue and building blocks of all DMXzone server side components and also full replacement of the old deprecated server behaviors. With DMXzone Connect you will be able to define a pipeline of execution of server components visually. For example upload files, resize them and for each file insert a database record and send an e-mail. When defined, your server action can be executed via Ajax wherever you like and you can display its output or bind it with HTML5 Data Bindings! So prepare for the future!

DMXzone Bootstrap 4 - DMXzone Bootstrap 4 with its own Visual Web Designer will allow you to design your Bootstrap pages visually, based on the structure of the upcoming Bootstrap 4. As soon as the Bootstrap 4 is available, we'll give you more details about this upcoming extension.

Near Future Releases

All upcoming server components will be supplied with complete integration with DMXzone Connect.
