Meet OpenUI5—a powerful web UI library for developing responsive web apps that run on and adapt to any current browser and device.

The unique feature set includes: responsiveness across all platforms along with declarative UIs, data binding with direct OData, JSON and XML support, Model-View-Controller concepts and 180 UI controls organized in different libraries such as jQuery, datajs, LESS, Handlebars, Crossroads, iScroll and others. Come and see a ton of different OpenUI5 apps, and some serious live coding!

With OpenUI5, you’ll get the same built-in support that SAP now enjoys for 37 languages and 575 locales, accessibility, right-to-left support and more for free. Discover the new automated screenshot comparisons, build-on-submit with compatibility validation – and a huge pile of actual touch devices.
