Turn the “Light On” – Introducing Salesforce 1 Lightning

Year 2013 was ruled by Salesforce 1 and now this year 2014 Salesforce is ready to rule the world with Salesforce 1 Lightning. Salesforce will be announcing the same in this current week and I am sure this is going to change the way we use to see the salesforce application on mobile – infact it is going to hit the wearable technology also. This is going to be the big goldmine for developers. 🙂

I spent few odd minutes to see that what all it includes, and here is my findings –

  • Salesforce 1 Lightning App Builder (Pilot) – 
    • Visually create apps with drag-and-drop components
    • Create beautiful, responsive UIs for Salesforce1 Apps
    • Use custom or off-the-shelf Lightning Components
  • Browser Support – Google Chrome / Apple Safari (for mac) / Mozilla Firefox / IE 9, 10, 0r higher.
  • Lightning Scheme Builder – A visual node layout program that allows developers to add custom objects and fields without reading massive tables.
  • Lightning Community Designer – Taps the Salesforce Communities tool to allow users to quickly build new communities that connect partners, customers, and employees.
  • Lightning Components – Where components have already been created for certain functions, developers can just drop those into new apps they are creating. Examples of already-existing components include feed, list, chart, search, and navigation. New components can be accessed on the Salesforce AppExchange.
  • Open Source Aura Framework – Lightning components are based on the open source Aura framework available at https://github.com/forcedotcom/aura. The Aura framework enables you to build apps completely independent of your data in Salesforce. Note that the open source Aura framework has features and components that are not currently available in the Lightning Component framework.

According to Scott Holden, vice-president of platform at Salesforce.com, Lightning is all about helping Salesforce companies build apps faster.
