Create an Application by Importing .ds file

Zoho Creator also supports creating an application by importing a .ds file. A Deluge Script (.ds) file is a file that stores the structure of a Zoho Creator application in text format.

To upload your .ds file

  1. Go to the homepage of Zoho Creator. Navigate to Solutions module. Click the Create Solution button in the top right corner.
  2. Three kinds of solutions will be displayed - Applications, BI & Analytics, and Integration flows. Click Select button in Applications.
  3. The different ways to create application will be shown: Create from scratch, Create from Gallery, and Import from file. Click the Import button under Import from file.
  4. Upload your .ds file from:
    • Local storage of your device
    • Cloud service - Google Drive, Box, OneDrive, Dropbox, Zoho Docs

  5. Upon successful import, you'll be taken to access the application.
Note: A .ds file only contains the application structure and not any data. Thus, the application you create by importing it won't have any data in it.
