    I'm pretty new to Telerik Backend Services/AppBuilder. So far I read some documentation about it. But I couldn't find a answer to a concrete question: Can I use/work on a project (hybrid app with Cordova) local (IntelliJ, Visual Studio, ...) while having all project files on Teleriks Backend (Service). Why do I want that? Several reasons:

    - Working with a developer tool I already know (I'm sure AppBuilder is great but its still an online tool)
    - No compiler hassle for different platforms
    - Compiling/sharing over Teleriks Backend Service

    So every change I'm doing would go to the Telerik Plattform where I could compile/deploy if necessary.

    Is that possible as I'm thinking about it or does not make no sense?

    To answer your question with a few details about Telerik AppBuilder and Telerik Backend Services.

    AppBuilder allows you to use a few different approaches when working with project files with integrated sync in the cloud or working locally. Yet you will be able to compile and build via AppBuilder (Code services) and also publish your app.

    For your purposes you may consider the Visual Studio extension, Sublime text plugin or just the CLI with your favorite text editor or IDE. You can read about more about each of the choices here.

    As for Telerik Backend Services - these services does not have a relation to the way you are working with your code or project and does not allow to save or sync your project files or to compile and build your project. They are able to provide further functionality to your app by additional services like storing images, saving data in the cloud, offline data sync, push notifications, etc. More information about them here.

    I hope this answers your question.
