ExtGen and Sencha Cmd
ExtGen 7.4 and Sencha Cmd have been updated to support Ext JS 7.4.
With Open Tooling, @sencha/[email protected], you can unlock many build features of Sencha Cmd by passing environment options through your npm scripts. These options are then sent to Sencha Cmd via Sencha’s custom webpack plugin.
You now can enable the dynamic package loader from your scripts by passing an environment variable through the webpack plugin: –env.cmdopts=–uses. You may recognize this is the same flag used by Sencha Cmd CLI. Sencha’s custom webpack plugin exposes the variable cmdopts to your npm scripts. Within the webpack plugin, this variable is parsed into an array of build options for Sencha Cmd. Building for testing is also available by Cmd Opts.
Explore the Building npm based Applications docs for more information.

This is exciting news but, once again, Sencha Architect lags behind the framework release. So what are we looking at, here? A week? A month? Half a year? Will the new Apple ARM processors be supported in the new version of SA?
Really looking forward to getting my hands on the new features!
Kegan Blumenthal says
Happy to hear you’re excited about the new grid features we just released. The team is working on adding the new grid features to Sencha Architect. This also includes support for the new Apple ARM processors.
The 7.4 Architect release is targeted for release in early Q3 this calendar year. Please note that features are not committed until completed and GA released.
Mike McConnell says
Thank you, Kegan. I appreciate the update.

Awesome work Sencha team, congrats for the new release and we are soexcited to test it and use in our web applications.
Also we apsolutely agree with @Mike McConnell – we need this features supported by SA asap.
One suggestion for SA, please provide to Sencha users Sidebar menu in SA template as is a standard menu for modern web applications.

Excellent write up on what looks like a solid release! Congrats!
Love it! Can’t wait for architect to be updated!
You guys read my mind! This release has exactly what I needed right now! It’s incredible :)! This made our product jump far ahead!
Now the grids are really powerful.
Thanks a lot for this stuff!
Btw. for those looking to integrate the new grid features in Architect right now, it’s quite simple. Just override your grid and add the desired plugins and features. Then add custom properties on the columns, like the summaries, etc.
Filterbar seems to be very good option.
Can we provide filterbar list a seperate store. This would be usefull when we are having remote store in grid and not records are loaded in grid. In this case the filterbar list should show all distinct value for that column, even if not loaded. This can be accomplished by giving seperate store to the filterbar list
I did not see this anywhere in docs.
Could you please comment
Kegan Blumenthal says
Users can use the options config property for the list filter type
An array of values or a store configuration
