AppyBuilder Offline



I don’t use Windows but Linux. I can only say that it runs on my system without any problems. I tried starting just the gui server but i got a different error when i was trying to build, not what you are seeing.


@Peter_Mathijssen can I make offline apps with this help of appybuilder offline and is this latest version of appybulder
and what is the size of this


its not opening


I downloaded and extracted the zip file just yet and it works fine.

Maybe something went wrong while downloading. It says the archive is damaged. What if you try it again.


@Peter_Mathijssen I have tried it much time but no worked so I download it again but it’s still not working so I used my 2nd pc to download and run but nothing changes and I have used much software like WinRAR 7zip not worked. I think its damaged need to update it


Like i said. It is not damaged on Github. Something maybe is going wrong when it is downloaded.


but I have download it again not worked. and also tried it on another pc it still


I am using Lubuntu here (16.04 64 bits) and getting the same error.


It is still working here. Just tested it again.


I made my own zipfile. You could try this.


@Peter_Mathijssen, thanks for your time and attention.

Being more accurate in my information, I’m using the Lubuntu installation in a Oracle VirtualBox (I supposed that this should not be a problem).
I downloaded your zip and uncompressed it. Changed the files permissions and started both servers from the prompt line.
After that, with the pcmanfm, I clicked on the “index.html” file, that is in the “GUIServer” folder.
I am still getting the error message (as you can see in the picture).

I’m using Oracle Java 8, for java compiler (I installed it with the apt-get). All the java environment is configured to Java 8. You can see the Java 8 compiler selected:

renato@renato:~/AppyBuilderPersonal-master$ sudo update-alternatives --config javac
There are 3 choices for the alternative javac (providing /usr/bin/javac).

Where is my mystake? Do i have to install the GUIServer in a specific folder? Did I forget to do something?



@Peter_Mathijssen, I think i get where I was missing.

I was trying to start the GUIServer by starting the “index.html” under the GUIServer folder.

Noooooo… I was wrong.

It is supposed to me access my localhost. So, I pointed out to “http://localhost:8888/” and the magic happened.

I’ll try with my own package now.

Thumbs up to you, my fellow!!! And thank you for your attention.


PS: sorry for the bad English - I’m a native Portuguese speaker :wink:


I was going to answer this but you found out for yourself. Great :+1:


So my zipfile doesn’t give the error you got from the appybuilder github page?


Nope, no problems! It is working smooth!!! Congrats! :wink: and thank you again!


I created an issue on the githubpage so that the developers can take a look at it.


The original package is working also. I downloaded it again, and it is working fine (as you can see in the following screenshot)

For the AppyBuilder team, IMHO, I suggest that you include the “how to” or the “step by step for dummies” (like me :D) in the README.txt, in order to help the uninformed ones :blush:

Thanks for the wonderful work - surely it will be a revolution!


I think that the problem is not the zipfile itself; instead, I was trying to start the application clicking on the “index.html” file. Maybe @Brainwork was doing the same (I don’t know).

I downloaded the original AppyBuilder file and installed it all again.
The servers started and I pointed the browser to the localhost:8888 and it worked (with the original AppyBuilder GitHub file).

So, the issue was on my side, not with the zip file.


in the it says:

Starting frontend (user interface)

Use File Explorer to switch to the new folder (AppyBuilderPersonl)
Next, double click onWinStartAppyBuilderServer.bat to start the frontend (or equivelant .sh file)
IF the popup window immediately closes, this means that your java path is not setup properly.
You may have to update the file to directly point to your java.exe; e.g.
C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_121\bin\java.exe

At this time, you can start a browser, and enter http://localhost:8888

Maybe that should also be in the readme.txt


I guess that makes AppyBuilder so special.
