1 What Is the Developer Portal?

The Developer Portal is one of the three key components of the Mendix Platform. The other two are Mendix Studio Pro and Mendix Studio. In the Developer Portal, Mendix developers can collaborate, deploy, and manage their apps, and manage their company and users.

The Developer Portal also offers open, well-defined APIs, enabling third-party developers to integrate their own widgets and plugins. For more information, see API Documentation.

To create a new app click Create App, which will open a page where you can choose a starting pointing for your new app:

On the right side of the top bar, you can search and access your Mendix Profile. You can also click the + icon to create a new app.

On the left side of the top bar, you open an access menu by clicking the Switch to menu:

You can then access the following parts of the Mendix Platform:

You can also quickly access specific Recent Apps you have used.

Click Company Buzz to communicate with colleagues, team members, stakeholders, and any other Mendix users in your company.
