Visual App Builder
Create your Sencha Touch and Sencha Ext JS applications with drag and drop components and a live preview canvas. Toolboxes make it easy to access a component's configuration and setting properties such as a button's title, or grid's data store.
Models, stores and proxies are also configured visually with easy-to-use visual representations of data as well as the backing store so developers can quickly connect to existing backend data sources and test their connectivity is functional. Models are defined by describing their meta data and Architect lets developers visualize the data structure, including typing all from within the Project Inspector.
Collaboration and Control
For Designers, Sencha Architect enables you to visually create the full application — from lists, to buttons, to forms, to grids and carousels — and hand off the project to a developer. Designers can even prototype interactions and application configuration, so there's no loss of fidelity when developers begin to write the application code.
Build for Mobile, Build for Desktop
Sencha Architect works with Sencha Touch and Sencha Ext JS out of the box. Every component from the frameworks is at your fingertips, including the Application pattern and the MVC capabilities.
Whether you want to build a grid that uses infinite scrolling, connected to a REST backend, or build a mobile login form that uses an Ajax proxy to validate your user, with Ext JS and Sencha Touch capabilities in Architect, it’s trivial to build UI and logic to make it happen. Even Ext JS’ rich charting and graphics capabilities are supported so you can build rich line of business applications with powerful data visualization.
Drag and Drop with Optimal Code
Using Sencha Architect is like having a Sencha developer by your side. Combining the best of a visual application builder with the power of a flexible code editor, Architect generates best practice code. It makes it easy for Sencha novices to see the best way to leverage Sencha Touch and Sencha Ext JS, as well as making expert Sencha users more productive by taking away the tedious parts of software development.
