I created a custom bookmark with photos and extents for the user to quickly zoom to various facility locations in WebAppBuilder Developer. I'd like to use this bookmark widget in several additional web map applications. Do I have to manually duplicate this widget each time? Can I find the app id (its #33), go to that app folder then the widget folder, copy the Bookmark widget and paste it into another widget folder of a new app?
I read somewhere to add it as an application extension (Appbuilder). I went to the application file on my local machine where WAB Developer is installed and tried to add this url - - - https://localhost:3344/webappbuilder/?id=33/widgets/Bookmark/manifest.json to no avail. Everything is internal only here.
The json file that is the configuration for the widget resides in the apps configs folder so you need to copy the folder too. i.e. [instal dir]\server\apps\[app#]\configs\eBookmark
Thank you for your quick reply there Robert. My apologies in advance. I am a knucklehead at this.
So it appears the "...apps/app#/widgets" folder will always have the default Bookmark widget in it whether its used in the application or not.
To verify, all i need is to copy the configs folder widget from app#33 to to the same place in the new app (#14) and it should show up when I open the edit version of the WAB Developer. Can I rename it first to use it in other apps or will that weird everything out?
Thanks so much -
OK. To be sure here are the steps I would take to get the custom bookmarks you have setup in one app over to another (using the eBookmark widget).
