Yeah, I know starting with a developer preview is probably not a great tactic, but I'm generally a fairly competent programmer, and I'm eager to get started.
Anyway, I found out that the build tools aren't really in place yet, so you just need to copy a few files over to the proper directories and you're good to go.
I created a Github project to act as a starting point for anyone who just wants to play with Ext JS 4.0. I'll try to keep this updated as newer versions of the developer preview and or beta are released. I would love your thoughts/comments, so just post a message here or add an issue on Github and I'll look at it right away!
thanks, but that's not exactly what i had in mind . A simple fully-working example using the MVC architecture would be the perfect starter template. Something similar with the ext 3 desktop example.
The starter template should reflect:
- application start
- MVC pattern - actually having built a controller/model/view
- going from a page to another (from an action to another on a certain event)
- properly cleaning/destroying the components before switching/going to another action
They said they're gonna ship a complete application architecture that can be used out of the box and this will help a lot of people who want to start an extjs4 application "the proper way".
