Hello all,

I went thru the documentation but I'm pretty new to ESRI and WebApp Builder so not sure if what I'm asking is possible...

Lets say I've created a custom widget using the WebApp Builder (my own template and functionality in its "widget.js" file and so on) - is it possible to wrap it up as an API and consume/require it like esri's other widgets (like "esri/widgets/Expand")?

require([
"esri/WebScene",
"esri/views/SceneView",
"esri/widgets/Expand"
], function(
WebScene,
SceneView,
Expand
) {‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

My goal is to create a custom widget using WebApp Builder - but later on to use this widget thru API and not the builder itself.

Is that possible?

Thanks.

Yaniv,

   No that is not an option. WAB widgets have a lot of dependency on the jimu.js library and the whole WAB app structure.

Hi Yaniv Lev,

It is possible to create your own custom widgets for use in the JS API: Widget development | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.15

The ArcGIS for JavaScript API provides a set of ready-to-use widgets. Beginning with version 4.2, it also provides a foundation for you to create custom widgets.

HTH,

Egge-Jan
