    Hey DhanaSupriya Sidagam, although the cloud tools are incomparable with all the handy stuff they provide, from templates, linting, git, extension panel, backend systems integration and so on, If you still want to use a local tool for UI5 development, VS Code is an option.

    You will have to set up a server preferably with node.js, so you can run your application. And there are some handy vs code extensions both from SAP and from 3rd parties, to make it easier.

    In this unit on OpenSAP you can find intructions on how to install and use VS Code.

    And in this unit you can find browser extensions and advice on how to use developer tools.

    Basically, completing the above course and its' predecessor, will help you greatly on developing with UI5.

    • Hey DhanaSupriya Sidagam, it boils down to experience. VS Code is a great tool if you know how to use it. For example, you can create your own extension for your specific needs, or define settings that suit your needs. On the other hand WebIDE comes with all this cool stuff, predefined. Specially for standard application extensions, WebIDE has a great tool, which automates procedures with extension point visualization, changes previewing, automatic code insertion, etc. Even if you are experienced enough to handle all this on your own, it is a pity not to have a tool that can take care of them.
