Why is the flowable modeler abandoned (2 years ago) in Angular 1 while the Activiti-Modeling-App is under active development at Angular 7 (https://github.com/Activiti/activiti-modeling-app)??
Can we embed the Activiti-Modeling-App in our modern (Angular 8) web app, and use it to edit processes we run with the Flowable 6 engine on our server?
We are trying to upgrade our embedded engine and UI from Activiti 5.15 to Flowable 6.
We’ve got the engine working and are at the point where we want to add in the modeler.
We used to use KIS but deprecated it a while ago and want something modern that fits in our Angular UI (and has an open license).
Other posts on this forum discuss the option of runnign the Modeler application or embedding the JS.
We don’t want a separate application, because we don’t use the task app, and the navigation, load/save lifecycle, etc with the separate editor would be clunky (among other reasons).
The only way we could embed the Angular1 UI would be to treat it as a separate single-page-app and intercept Save actions (assuming there is not a lot of other ajax we would have to intercept… this is basically what we used to do with KIS)
Of course it would be easier (presumably) if the Flowable Modeler were a more modern Angular 7 application, and better in general if it were being actively developed.
The we noticed that the Activiti-Modeling-App is going strong. What’s up with that? Can we get the best of both worlds and use the Activiti 6 modeler and the flowable 6 engine?
Is anyone else doing this?
