With SAP Build Apps, you cannot only quickly build functional user interfaces, but also create applications that look appealing, are user-friendly, and allow individual components to be visually adapted to the needs of the user and company. Themes play an important role here and are used to determine the design and handling of an app. Many style properties are readily available in the menu to change the appearance of the application.
The advantage of themes is that they bring different styles, colors, or fonts with different collections, on one hand, to ensure that the design always appears consistent. On the other hand, this has the advantage that developers can save time and focus more on development thanks to the rapid adjustment and configuration with themes.
To work on the design and change the look of your app, you can use the theme editor. You can access the theme editor on the upper part of the registration card. There you can find different color palettes and select an already available or create one that fits your needs or, for example, your company's corporate design.
SAP Build Apps benefits from smart colors. These can be used to optimize the user experience. After the configuration of the smart content color, the components automatically adjust to the background color, for example, if it is changed from a light background to a dark background.
Using the theme variable, the design can also be set apart from the colors, which then adapt all elements of the app as the chosen setting. For example, you can set the configuration for text size, border, shadow, spacing, and font with the given options. You can also easily set new theme variables. The big advantage is that you can also make all variables dynamic here using the binding option.
If you want to use the default themes, there are two theme groups (Universal theme and Fiori theme) currently available, with various design possibilities to adapt the design of the apps to your need.
