To all our developers, partners, customers and friends, from all of us at Sencha we want to wish you Happy Holidays. In the spirit of writing some code for the holidays (and for a little bit of fun), we’ve created a special Winter Theme for Sencha Touch!
In the final part of our tutorial series on Sencha Touch components, we’ll cover styling for our Ext.tux.AudioCover component. Over the last few posts, we’ve walked through the component’s code development, which you can find posted here and here, but now we want to customize our component’s look.
We’re back with part two of our Sencha Touch 2.1 component creation tutorial. In part one of this tutorial, we introduced the concept of Sencha Touch components, our Ext.tux.AudioCover idea and began defining the functionalities needed for our Ext.tux.AudioCover to be a success. Today, we’ll be continuing with detailing those definitions, starting with the configuration parameters.
We’ve heard developers ask for more tutorials and guides for our frameworks, and today we’re walking through Sencha Touch component creation. I was recently asked to create an HTML5 component that would allow users to hear a preview of an audio track and show its progress inside a circular progress bar, similar to the iOS component.
If you develop Ext JS applications with a lot of data, you’ve probably spent a lot of development time on data transformation and synchronization with your back-end system. There are lots of ways to transfer data. For our systems, we chose Ext.Direct. Ext.Direct is a specification from Sencha and is implemented in the Ext JS and Sencha Touch libraries.
Today marks a major milestone for the Sencha platform. We are announcing the general availability of Sencha Touch 2.1, general availability of the Sencha Cmd 3.0 build tool, an update to Sencha Architect, and a beta release of the BlackBerry 10 theme for Sencha Touch!
Sencha Touch 2.1 is our next release of the Sencha mobile framework. The 2.1 release includes the following key upgrades: significant performance improvements, charting support, an advanced list component, and enhanced native support through the Sencha Mobile Packager.
We’ve been working on various tools that make a Sencha developer’s life easier, and we started with Sencha Architect. Our new plugin makes it even easier to use Architect by providing a full set of code completion and code assistance features for Eclipse.
Today we’re excited to announce the availability of our newest bundle, Sencha Complete: Team. Over the last few years, we’ve been working hand in hand with our customers as they use Sencha technologies to make more complex and mission critical applications on both desktop and mobile. Sencha Complete: Team is intended to help teams of developers be more productive, connect their apps more easily to back-end data sources, and have more flexibility in deployment.
