Standard MacOs is boring, let make a new terminal with more feature with nice looking.

Make sure you have install Xcode:

Then you need to install brew using standard mac terminal.

/bin/bash -c “$(curl -fsSL"

It is difficult to use window 10 to build a pluggable widget. Let’s see how to overcome this.

We need these tool to manage node version, and a good terminal to execute the command.

First of all, you need a Cmder. Currently, i use version 1.3.18. You can able download it at

It is a portable one, so you just extract and keep it some where and use the .exe file.

Second is the nvm which is a node module management. You can download it at …

I wrote this blog in order to demonstrate how to use React hooks to develop a drag and drop widget in Mendix Studio Pro version 9.2.0.

Let’s start with a new pluggable widget, by running the yo command (Fig. 1.)

Creating an automatic login feature can be quite a challenge. A feature which is intended to make approval processes smoother and more efficient, can quickly make a developers life difficult. From regular login features, to more complex approval processes without even the need for a login, Deeplinks are incredibly powerful if used correctly. In this demo I would like to show you how we made an autologin with existing widgets and modules available from the Mendix Marketplace.

First of all, thanks to those who have contributed on the market place modules for

All of these are modules are needed in this demo project. With that being said, let’s get started using Mendix Studio Pro 7.23.20 (LTS).

With the age of Mendix using Phonegap soon coming to an end, there are still a lot of running applications which will need to be maintained. Meaning we will still need make use hybrid mobile applications, at least for a little while longer. Therefore, I am writing this blog to explain step by step, how to build an APK or IPA file.

How to build Hybrid Android APK’s using Cordova’s Command Line Interface.

Go to your application’s dashboard on Mendix, and select Mobile App in the left hand side menu. Refer to Fig. 1 below

An Identity Provider is a system entity that creates, maintains, and manages identity information, normally for user authentication. People try to use IDP’s more often since the technology is helpful for external users with no dependencies on LDAP authentication.

There are many open-source IDPs that you can try such as Shibboleth, Keycloak, and more. However, I would decided to use the Okta developer environment because it is easy to use and we do not need to configure as many settings to use it.

Let’s take a look at the SAML protocol in an overview picture below.

Initiative tools for flutter developers.

Down load flutter at

Extract and keep inside a Document path

Add the flutter to the .zshrc profile


“Homebrew” install

/usr/bin/ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL"

Python 3.7 install

brew install python@3.7

Python path should not be a system path (/usr/bin/python3)

We need to change the path

When I wanted to add a youtube video into my native mobile app, I realised that the Video player widget from Mendix could only accept the URL of an mp4 file. That’s the reason why I needed to make a new widget that can make use of youtube’s embed code.

You can download the widget from the Mendix Market Place here,

To start off, make a new widget with the “yo” command from the pluggable widget tutorial

>>yo @mendix/widget VideoLink

Choosing ES6, Empty Project, and No Testing Module.

>>cd VideoLink

If you have a VSCode, you can open the project with

>> code .

First of all, we need to have an XML file to define the input for the widget such as embed code, video frame width, and height.
