I am evaluating ext-JS 4.0 and designer 1.2.2 for use in client side web site development. We are currently using a range of technologies with Jquery/UI being the most modern.
After a little time going through the tutorial car sales pages I have some observations.
  1. Designer places generated files and files that need to be edited and kept in the same directories. This seems to make it hard to work out which files should be under revision control. Is it common practice to just put the generated files under revision control?
  2. With the delayed loading of the js files it seems impossible to find the js file in firebug to allow the placing of breakpoints. This makes firebug a lot less useful than we are used to. Is there a way of getting around this? Different debugger?
  3. Do you have any tutorials targeting developers that are use to jQuery to quickly learn extJS
