Templates Generated from our CLI tool

This section covers the mashup templates which you can generate using the @motor-js/cli package.

Congratulations on generating your first Mashup with Motor 💪. Before diving into the details of your code, this page will cover some of the basics.

There are some common themes and implementation details across all our mashups regardless of the template you have chosen.

The code is built in React.

You probably know this by now, but just in case you didn't.

The code uses @motor-js/engine.

Your code uses the @motor-js/engine package for all communication with the Qlik engine. Our package handles all interactions via the Motor component and our hooks. You will see some of examples of this in your downloaded code.

It's worth getting familiar with this package, you can read an introduction here and how to use the hooks here.

You connect to your site via our Motor component

Our Motor component handles engine connection and passes this as context to all of the hooks in our package. This will be already set this up at the root of your project, import the hooks and you are good to go. You can read more about this here.

The templates are set up to connect to Qlik Sense SASS

If you are using a Qlik Sense Enterprise deployment, you will need to connect your engine yourself and pass the engine object to the Motor component. You can find an example of this here.
