About the Tencent Cloud platform

Tencent Cloud is one of the leading cloud providers in the world with a focus on supporting global enterprises to succeed in China. The cloud platform is part of a digital ecosystem that includes some of China’s top gaming, social, messaging, digital literature, mobile payment, video and music streaming platforms.

With over a billion users, Tencent is a worldwide technology leader and the largest tech company in Asia.

The challenge

Mendix and Tencent have entered into a partnership. Mendix wanted to reach the Chinese market with its platform and the Tencent Cloud Platform was the platform to make that happen. The core Mendix applications had to be transferred to the Tencent Cloud Platform. 

This transfer of applications required some parts of the Mendix platform to be rebuilt. Mendix called in our help to rebuild the following applications; MxSprintr, MxNew, MxSignup, MxDeveloper and MxAppstore into a lean new Mendix app used for the Chinese market: App & Team Management. With, of course, a good connection to Studio Pro, Studio, Repository and Tencent. Mendix wanted to have the transfer ready in three months.


Our solution

We mainly followed the vision that Mendix had for this product and the guidance of Xebia, who, had already setup most of the 'Pro code' side of things. We acted as lead development partner on App & Team Management. Considering the timeframe and complicated nature of lift & shifting part of the apps and having to exactly match both published and consumed services through a new app we have had a very lean approach.

Results

  • Within three months, Sprintr, Mx New and Mx App Store were successfully replaced by a lean application that was launched within the agreed timeframe.
  • Mendix can now offer all of its products to the Chinese market.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
