So, how to get started?

After you have the applications ready, you can create a new “Multi Target Application Project”. After the project is created you can select New and “SAP Fiori Launchpad Site Modules”. This will open a wizard that will guide you through the creation of a Fiori Launchpad Site that contains the applications you would like to include. Build the project to create an mtar file containing the out of the box content of the site. You can than deploy the mtar file by using the “xs deploy” command. During the deployment, you will receive the URL for the site. This URL can be send to the end users to access the Fiori Launchpad Site with all the applications.

The end user receiving the Fiori Launchpad Site will benefit from the capabilities of branding, translations and personalization.
