This example describes the process of creating a new visualization extension from scratch using Dev Hub and making it available in Qlik Sense. For more background on building a visualization extension, refer to Getting started building visualization extensions.
Do the following:
Launch Dev Hub.
See Launching Dev Hub.
Create a new visualization extension.
Click Create new, give your visualization a name, then select the template you require.
Then click Create & edit.
The visualization extension is launched in the Extension editor.Tip: If you are creating a visualization extension outside of Dev Hub, you need to create an empty folder and name it accordingly.
Edit the content of the visualization extension accordingly.
Edit the content of the QEXT file.
Create the property panel for the visualization extension.
If you created your extension in Dev Hub, it is automatically available to add to a sheet in your app.
If you created the visualization extension with another tool, do one of the following:
- For Qlik Sense Desktop, copy the extension (that is, the folder and the files) to ..Users\<UserName>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Extensions.
- For Qlik Sense Enterprise, compress the extension (folder and the files) and import it using the QMC. See Importing extensions for details.
