Lightning Pages are a concept introduced by Salesforce to allow creating and customizing pages in Salesforce with simple drag & drop, for Lightning Experience and Salesforce1. In this post I want to explain how these pages behave in a managed package environment.
Since Lightning Experience was released, the concept of Classic App and Lightning Apps came up.
- Classic App: an application that has been built in the Classic UI. You can make it visible in Lightning Experience, but that does not convert it into a Lightning App.
- Lightning App: an application that has been built in the Lightning Experience UI.
In this post I want to talk about the benefits that Lightning Apps introduce, with an extra bonus of things to take into account if you are an ISV who builds managed packages.
While Salesforce releases new functionality three times a year, Lightning Components are becoming more an more important in Salesforce. In this post I want to give a quick overview of which kind of Lightning Pages we can create in Salesforce, and how do we have to design Lightning Components in order use them in such pages.
