DW converting to Wappler


#1

I would like to switch completely to Wappler but what should be done with my dozens of sites developed in DW with its extensions.

What is the procedure? I have already done some experiments and I think a lot of work needs to be done again. Not to mention the cleaning up of unnecessary libraries and code created by DW.
It would be handy if we had a manual for converting DW websites to Wappler websites.


#2

I worked some years ago with DW and this old version used native PHP includes and Server connections to make DB interaction.

So what I would say we had with old DW this concept:

DW <——>PHP/ASP

Now with wappler its this way:
Wappler <—— JSON ——> PHP/ASP

Maybe I‘m wrong but I guess you need to copy whole website without PHP/Connectivity and rebuild your connectors

My websites are static so I don’t worry about php :smile:


#4

There is already a documented way in the official Wappler documents Migrating Dreamweaver Site Definitions into Wappler, hope this helps.
