1. Get ready to use template for the Job posting app

If you have decided to build the Job posting application but don’t have your design ready, don’t worry. DhiWise provides you with ready-to-use app templates. Use its Hired-Job search UI kit to quickly start the app development.

The application template comes with the following features

  1. Authentication
  2. Back Navigation
  3. Permissions
  4. Close Dialog
  5. Set Hyperlink
  6. Close BottomSheet

Also, if you have your design ready in Figma, AdobeXd, or Sketch, you can convert your app design to code in minutes with a design-to-code feature in the platform. 

Watch our youtube video to know how to import a Figma design to the DhiWise platform.

2. Select app screens and start customizing the application UI 

Once the design is imported into the DhiWise platform you can start customizing your application. First set your application splash screen as shown in the snap below. Then, set the remaining screens.

If your Figma design prototyping is already done DhiWise will fetch all the interaction along with the screen components during design-to-code conversion. 

Select the screen you want to customize, you can configure everything from setting up navigation, views, lifecycle methods, and more.  Also, it allows you to modify changes using handy keyboard shortcuts while having a real-time design preview and error checks using DhiWise Smart Editor. 

With the platform, you can modify widgets along with their properties and customize your UI for the supported widgets.

3. Integrate API into your application

With the API integration feature, you can provide a secure and standardized way for the app to work with the other application in your project and deliver the information or functionality requested without user interventions. 

The platform provides you with two ways to add API to the application. You can either upload  APIs manually and customize them later or you can upload the Postman Collection to integrate APIs in your app. 

back-to-api

To set up API on any screen, widget or view components follow the steps below:

  1. Select the screen in your app and click the Configure option to set up the API.
  2. Go to the widget on which you want to integrate an API. Then add the “onClick” property for setting up action and choose API integration from the action list. 
  3. Then it will ask you to submit a function name for your API integration.
  4. Finally, select an API that you want to bind with the selected view widget or lifecycle method from the list of APIs added.

4. Social Media Authentication

Social media authentication allows users to access the app without going through the tedious process of account registration with personal details. Users just need to choose a specific social media account, to log in. 

With DhiWise you can set social authentication to the widget for the “onClick” property. Choose the type of authentication and it will take you to the authentication setup screen.

5. Add App Constants

Constant files are used in the apps so that one can easily access the value which is used globally throughout the apps. Using the platform you can create, and delete constant files and use them in your app.

6. Add permissions

By adding permissions you can get control over the phone and access to the camera, photos, contact list, location, and phone storage. The permission request will pop up when the app needs access to the phone data. 

The platform simplifies the way you add permission to the application, select the widget and add permission from the suggestion box on the “onClick” property. Or if you are using a template you will already get it added.
