Is it possible to consume ArcGIS Server REST services with WAB Dev. Edition without Portal?
> Is it possible to consume ArcGIS Server REST services with WAB Dev. Edition without Portal?
No. Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS Developer Edition starts by connecting and signing into a portal (either ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS). A Web AppBuilder app always "opens" by loading a web map at runtime. After a web map is opened, you can add web services via a REST URL directly.
Hope this helps,
What Derek said is correct, but for info on how you can use you ArcGIS Services, you may want to look at

I have a ve a list of this and other custom widgets have written, Web AppBuilder - The custom widgets list (4/5/2018)
