Documentation for our Solar Template built with styled-components


The Solar template is built in React using create react app. It uses a CSS in JS styling framework, more specifically with styled-components and styled-system.

Your mashup connects to the Qlik engine via the Motor component. If you have not entered these details whilst running the CLI, these can be edited in settings/index.js.

Currently we only automate connection to Qlik Sense SASS. To connect to Qlik Sense Enterprise you will need to create a new component and handle connection to the engine yourself

The Solar template does not include any global state management, as the Qlik engine will be doing this hard work for us. You can read more about the code in the next section.

Before using this template, it is suggested that you get familiar with the @motor-js/engine package.
