I want to use the WebApp Builder in QGIS 2.12.3 But I can not find the QGIS Web App Builder in my QGIS version 2.12.3

Like this one: http://boundlessgeo.com/2015/06/building-openlayers-3-web-app-without-writing-code/

When I go to plugins it just shows the three options: Phyton console, manage / install plugins and InaSAFE.

I also tried to install all useful plugins like qgis2web GeoSuite and OpenLayers plugin.

Do I need to install the 2.8 version?

To install the Web App Builder, you will need to download this directly from the Boundless GitHub, or more specifically from the Web App Builder GitHub page.

(Note that it is not available in the QGIS Official Plugin Repository as according to this post, it may still be in the bug-fixing phase.)

Download and extract the .zip file into C:/Users/You/.qgis2/python/plugins. The plugin needs to be enabled from the Manage and Install Plugins... menu. Once done, it should be available in the Web menu as mentioned by @TomChadwin:

Web App Builder

  • How to enable from that menu? it's not showing up for me after extracting the files like you've said

    @Luffydude - Did you extract the files when QGIS was already running? If so, restart QGIS.

Try the Web menu. That's certainly where qgis2web installs.
