Take Command of Your Projects

The Sencha SDK Tools is a suite of powerful tools that automate a large part of the application creation, development and building process. Available for Windows and Mac.

Please note: Sencha SDK Tools are designed to be used with Sencha Touch 2 and Ext JS 4.0 and are deprecated for the most current framework releases. For the current version of Sencha’s build tools, please refer to Sencha Cmd, our unified tool for Sencha’s JavaScript frameworks.

With brand new capabilities for Sencha Touch 2, the SDK Tools can generate an app skeleton in seconds, create minified production-ready builds and even package your app for native app stores—all in one command.

The Sencha SDK Tools is an optional download that augments what the Ext JS and Sencha Touch frameworks can do out of the box. As well as generating and building apps, it can automatically slice CSS3-based themes into image files ready for IE6 and create HTML5 app cache manifests for your apps.

Installers are available for Windows and Mac OS X. Once installed, a new sencha command is accessible from your command line. Watch the Getting Started video to see how the SDK Tools can radically accelerate the development of your applications.

The Sencha SDK Tools are licensed under the SDK Tools License, and it covers the version of the SDK Tools it was downloaded with. View the SDK Tools License
