Introducing Valence 6

Extend the power of Valence to all your platforms.

Our latest release frees you to work in your preferred development environment and to run the Valence portal on every major operating system. Your developers and users have access to all the tools they need on all the platforms they use.

Support for all UI frameworks.

Apps written in any language or framework can participate in Valence Portal security and session management. Simply include the new valence.js script in your index.html file to write apps in Ext JS, React, Angular and others. They’ll all run seamlessly in Valence 6.

Nitro App Builder enhancements.

Major improvements in our low code app builder include a larger and more intuitive preview as you develop your app in real time, better responsive design for phones and tablets, and improved color selection for charts. We’re always enhancing Nitro App Builder to provide new features and speed development of powerful apps.

Valence Universal (beta).

Although we continue to believe and invest in the unique power of IBM i, Valence Universal provides a pathway to other platforms to accommodate changing business requirements. Your apps developed with Node.js for Valence on IBM i can also run on Linux, Windows or OS X through Valence Universal. Existing customers can request a test copy of Valence Universal by emailing

Node.js support.

Use Node.js to enable a “JavaScript everywhere” environment. The valence-connect package available on npm allows your apps written in Node.js to communicate with the Valence Portal for security and session management, giving you the option of writing your apps with RPG on the server side or switching to Node.js.  You even have the option of using both RPG and Node.js simultaneously to support a low-risk RPG-to-Node.js conversion effort.

Build powerful apps fast with Nitro App Builder.

  • Use our low-code app builder to create queries with charts, lists, forms, maps and other components based on ready-made widgets, with no programming required.

  • Build dynamic dashboard apps with full color charts and graphs.

  • Enable users to navigate and filter results according to specified behaviors, update data as appropriate, and download data to Excel.
