Bryntum has been working hard lately to port their Ext Scheduler component over to the Sencha Touch platform. In this post, they introduce you to the new version and share some details of how they developed a cross framework extension for Sencha Touch and Ext JS.
We’re excited to announce the availability of BlackBerry 10 support for Sencha Touch! Developers can use Sencha Touch 2.1.1 to create amazing web applications that run fantastically well on the Blackberry 10 browser.
A new high bar for publishing has been set by The Atlantic with their iPad app, built on Sencha Touch. Their new Wire tablet application (touch.theatlanticwire.com, built with Sencha Touch) is a great example of how publishers can leverage leading edge HTML5 technologies to create new and innovative media experiences without having to build a native application.
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!
