Publishing from Alpana Server

Widgets can be published from Alpana Designer.
Alternately, you can publish a widget@.alpw@ file directly to the Server.

Click the Add widget button :

Widget Add click

This opens the Upload New dialog :

Widget Add dialog

Click the Select File button to browse your filesystem for a widget .alpw file.
Fill-in a Name and optionally a Description.

When you click the Save button, the Widget is published.

Actions menu

Each published Widget has a set of actions available.
To list those actions, open the widget menu next to the Widget’s name :

Widget menu

Some of those actions are detailed in the corresponding chapter :

  • Make public / Make private
  • Get link / embed
  • Download
  • Manage permissions
  • Versions history
  • Update
  • Delete


This opens the Edit dialog to update the Widget’s name and description.

You can also upload a new widget .alpw file to replace the current one.
If you do so, this will create a new version, so you can input a Version Comment.

Widget Update dialog


This downloads the widget .alpw file.
This allows for example to import it in Alpana Designer.


This deletes the selected Widget.
