Can SAP WebIDE be used with SAP Process Orchestration/BPM?

I think you can generate SAPUI5 UIs from BPM but is it possible to integrate the

SAP WebIDE to help with changing and creating these UIs?

How would you do this and, most importantly, how do you get a UI developed/enhanced via the WebIDE back into BPM?

Also, when working with WebIDE and BPM should you use Github? Or is the standard tooling of CTS+ sufficient for moving your UI work from Dev to Prod?

Thanks in advance for any help!

you can move the code/project to web ide from nwds,

ui5 app are just some js and xml file. after done in web ide, you can copy back to nwds

nwdi is enough to manage the code.

if you want bring another player(git) to the ground, you can

Thank you very much Jun!

I'm just starting out on SAP PO so your reply was very helpful, and based on your reply I have another question:

Can the NWDS (Developer Studio) be used to change the UI if it is created in SAPUI5 code?
And if NWDS can change the code, and NWDI is enough to manage the code, and CTS+ can move the code across the PO landscape, then what would the benefit be of using WebIDE and Github be?

Thanks in advance!

nwds can do that.

web ide is just more intelligent. git is just a bit advanced in source code management. but you can go without both of them

Thanks again Jun!

So I guess if we used Git for our source code management, we'd still need to export the 'final' code to the NWDI, in order to transport the code to production. In which case Git seems an unnecessary extra step and so NWDS and NWDI should be enough for us.

You've been very helpful Jun!
