A Project contains Business ObjectsUser Interfaces, and other design assets that make up an app. A Project has a name, a description and a version. There are three types of projects: Applications, Libraries and Templates.

  1. Application: As the name implies, an application is a project that can be deployed and run.
  2. Library: A library is a set of design assets that can be used by one or more projects. A library can contain other libraries.
  3. Template: A template is a project that can be used as the starting point for libraries or applications.
