Thank you for reporting this bug. We will make it our priority to review this report.
The product is there and functional, it seems, just no-one knows how to use it.
Seriously, though. Check out the comments at
for the show() command. It wasn't until the heroic Saeven browsed the source code, and determined
"Ah, so, it seems if you are getting invisibles like jerome and I, there's a clue in the show source. Call Ext.Viewport.add(component); before attempting to show it. Seems the logger dies silently for me before it could signal this."
+100 Karma for Saeven!
@Sencha Team - I think a lot of us are impressed with the scope of options that look to be available to us, but are just out of reach. Tightening up the documentation somehow might help out.
@cburgadoff - hold that thought
I did it at my old company and have just started doing it again in my new role. This time I'll push it to github. At the bare minimum all it will do is generate the list of source files your app uses in the right order for some other task to then concat and minify them together.
Feel free to offer suggestions on other features - though bear in mind I want to keep the scope limited to JUST figuring out your app's dependencies - I'll leave concat, minification to other great tasks in grunt.
Also - note this is very much alpha at the moment, but it works in the basic case for my app right now.
This will be epic for debugging =]
Will it be able to learn custom structures? For instance, we have built View Controllers into ExtJS which don't extend Ext.app.Controller and implement custom properties for dependencies other than the default controllers, models, views & stores.
Currently to support this we pre-process all our view controllers to add a requires block containing all the dependencies so even just supporting pre-hooks would be awesome.
models: ['ModelA', 'ModelB'],
Obviously of course it's your spare time we're talking about.... ;-]
Why did they have to go with CKEditor??
@lsdriscoll You could write your own pre-processor step which does this as a grunt task before the sencha_dependencies one is invoked. I'd suggest dropping in a issue on to the github project so we can discuss it in a bit more detail:
After wasting a day trying to figure it out how to build the output from the Architect I decided to uninstall it and went back to use the SDK Tools. (2 simple cmd lines and done!!)
Not sure why I need to go thru all this pain http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthre...md-v3&p=901360 when the output should have been recognized by the tools. In the end they are all made by Sencha without any modifications from my end so I expected to be something more like this 'sencha build architect.xds' and let the tool figure it out itself without any input on my own.
Learning the build process is harder than learning the framework itself.
I cannot step into the code to spot where your docs don't match reality.
The docs need to be read as a whole. Information is hidden everywhere.
Why is there not a standard set of sample data? All the examples are fragments.
Post the command that builds a no-charts version. Is this not a no-brainer for somebody at sencha?
Make a multi page project. The feed viewer or song player or both.
Clone the project and add a fubar to each clone: this one demonstrates a union, this one demonstrates a third-party encoded script in a non-app folder, this one demonstrates an intersection....
Sorry I do not have the smarts or time to debug or step through your build process. There is bizarre stuff like "a space after a comma at this point breaks the compile".
I can learn by breaking a working sample. That gives me the power of deduction.
So provide real live working sample projects. That will give your documentation something to focus on for the tutorial part.
Then we need separate reference pages geared to the kind of application we are building. This is started but incomplete, you still have to read everything to put yourself back in the big picture when you return after a break.
+1 for all the complaints in this thread. Color me angry. I paid for this?
Kind wishes to the team on a challenging project. It's great and you have my encouragement.
Can you provide genuine working sample builds asap ?
None of us have the same requirements. But don't hide behind that. There are common patterns, you guys must know the top half dozen.
Well, good I came across this post. I have been wasting a good part of my working day trying to get this SenchaCMD to work?! I'm not familiar with SenchaTouch 2, and I have no idea where to start now. First the (official) docs or a tut, don't remeber had me download SenchaSDKTools. Is this deprecated or something? Now I have installed SenchaCMD, but I have no idea how I should make this work. sencha: command not found....

Very good idea with sample projects etc.
