  • Set Up HAT
  1. Download and install SCN Hybrid App Toolkit from SAP store.Extract the zip and run setup.cmd file.Follow the instructions.You should have SAP Web IDE cloud account or you can use local version of SAP Web IDE.I recommend you use cloud version because it has all the new features available.If you dont have an hcp account signup from here.
  2. Check the HAT installation.Just run run.cmd from the extracted HAT directory.It will ask for password which was given in step 1 of set Up HAT.Give password and press enter.Now open SAP Web IDE go to Tools->Preferences and enable HAT Plugin.Go to  Plugins > Optional Plugins  and tick mark and press save.Now click on Hybrid Application Toolkit and press test connection.It should give success message.
