Sencha show teases Ext JS extensions and enhanced features for web devs

Developer tooling software vendor Sencha has previewed new features and enhancements for the next three versions of its Ext JS framework for enterprise-grade web app development as well as a public release of Rapid Ext JS.

According to Rahul Mantri and Raj Vuyyuru, blogging for Sencha, upcoming versions will showcase “a great onboarding experience” for customers as well as easy, smooth future upgrades.

“Sencha plans to launch feature-rich quality products such as Ext JS 7.7, 7.8, and 7.9 with a focus on improving mobility and accessibility features while keeping the modern and classic toolkits on par,” Mantri and Vuyyuru wrote.

Ext JS 7.7 from the subsidiary of Texas-based Idera would focus on customer requests for Classic and Modern Toolkit, improving grid and other major components, and open tooling.

New features and quality improvements to arrive with version 7.8 include themes for the modern toolkit and Ext JS Modern to Ext JS Classic parity features, they said.

Also, Sencha sales engineer Marc Gusmano previewed an upcoming “star product” in beta at the time of writing, Rapid Ext JS, they noted.

A Visual Studio (VS) code extension, Rapid Ext JS is expected to be a powerful low-code editor for speeding up development with Ext JS. The public release of version 1.1.0 will focus on ease of use, stability, and quality improvements, they said.

New features will include more templates for starting new applications, an Undo/Redo feature for design view, improvements to the Sencha Toolbox Feature, component hierarchy view improvements, documentation and getting-started guides, according to Mantri and Vuyyuru.

Drag-and-drop will be supported and configurations updated in real time.

“The ongoing Rapid Ext JS beta phase is targeted at making the VS code extension more intuitive and user-friendly. The product is built with extensibility in mind, and almost every part of VS code is customised and enhanced through the extension,” they said.
