Learn how to prototype web and mobile apps

Installing the Software Development Kit (SDK)

Welcome to the developer tutorials for Justinmind tools. If you want to write an add-on for Justinmind, you have come to the right place. Your add-on may be a plugin or an entirely independent application that uses our APIs. These tutorials cover both aspects: how to make a plugin for Justinmind and how to build an entirely independent application that is able to read the contents in a .vp file (files made with Justinmind that contain all the information of a prototype).

You can use our APIs to reuse the work you did building your prototypes and generating code. In these tutorials you will find some examples that will help you to get started. You can find additional documents in our web site.

The first thing you have to do if you want to code an integration with Justinmind is to download our SDK.

This SDK is an Eclipse IDE with all the required libraries already included.

Once downloaded just unzip it in a folder and launch it.

Folders - SDK Justinmind

It will request you to set another folder as ‘workspace’ for all your project files. Choose one and click OK. Then, a screen similar to this one will appear:

Installing SDK in Justinmind - Initial screen


This is the typical welcome window for the Eclipse IDE. Just close it and let’s build our first integration with Justinmind.
