    Haha, I have said it a few different ways myself. Initially, it was pronounced "Extent". Then it was like "ekst" or x'd. Lately I find myself saying E-X-T a lot. My favorite out of the group would probably be x'd.

    I'm glad someone asked this. I've been curious for a while.

    (I've been using both X'd and E-X-T interchangably.)

    I say E-X-T. "ekst" never even occurred to me...

    At least no one is calling it Y-U-I-E-X-T

    I used to call it "ekst" but people used to miss the name .... so now I call it E-X-T, being te short name it is, this pronunciation gives it the emphasis it deserves.

    Since it's written "Ext" I say it as a word, "ekst". If it were written "EXT" (and especially if it were composed of the first letters of three words) I would pronounce it "E-X-T".

    Default How do you say Ext JS?

    How do you say Ext JS?


    Do you spell it out ("ee-ex-tee jay-ess")? Or do you say the first half ("exed jay-ess")? "Exed jess"? How does the team say it?

    I say: "ee-ex-tee". The js part was added after version 1, so I never say it. I started to use Ext in March 2007.
