Setup Guide

This guide is the beginning of the documentation with the built-in Notes for the database. Will help you gain a better understanding of how the template and Bubble works.

Starting with the Template

Once you have bought or added a template to your account, you will see a dropdown in the New Application popup that lets you pick a template as the basis for the new application.
☝
Note: this can only be done when you create a new app.

After you’ve selected a template you bought, complete the other fields with necessary data (i.e: Name of the new app, What kind of application you are building, etc) and press Create a new app.
πŸ’‘
Tip: A template isn’t a theme for your app, but a pre-built set of elements and workflows. You can modify the template as you would modify another app.
Wait for Bubble to load the application with all the data.

After the application has loaded, you’ll see the bubble assistant on the left side for New Application. You can close it or follow the assistant steps to adjust different settings.

URL Router for Navigation

☝
Note: Since plugin version 1.5.0, the β€œdeveloper version” field has been removed. Updating this plugin to a version higher than 1.5.0 might lead to errored navigation within the development version of your app.

Remove Demo Login

This template comes with demo accounts and demo buttons for testing purposes, which do not require a full sign-up process in order to test the platform features. Feel free to delete these login options in your app.

Tip: Please note that deleting the demo buttons will delete the button workflows as well. Removing these demo options doesn’t affect any other aspect of the template.
