Using Sencha Cmd and the Sencha Eclipse Plugin Together

Sencha Cmd 3.0 is the newest addition to the set of tools that make it easy to build Sencha applications. The new Cmd greatly increases the functionality of what you can do on the command line, giving you the ability to scaffold, build and minify projects. We also recently released the Sencha Eclipse Plugin, a plugin for the Eclipse IDE that gives you full code assist for Sencha projects. It understands the class system, built-in types, your own custom types, and more.

One of the coolest things you can do is use them together. With Cmd and with the Plugin, you get a full-cycle build and code environment. In this video, we show you how to use Sencha Cmd to build the skeleton of an Ext JS application, use the Eclipse Plugin to write some logic and see some of the cool features of the Plugin (it even understands xtypes!), and then use Cmd to add some new classes and keep going in Eclipse.

Check it out, and see how these tools can make you more productive than ever.

    Great “How to”.
    However, I’ve two errors on my project when i follow step-by-step the video :
    – In the class CustomerGrid, on the store is thrown a “Type mismatch: cannot convert from “Customers” to”
    – In the file resources/theme/render.js, on compData.radius = {…, is thrown a “type mismatch : cannot convert from (obj literal) to Number[]”

    Any Idea (on the store error) ?

    Despite these two errors, the app is working fine and firebug don’t throw any error.
    My conf :
    Sencha complete Trial, with SDK ext-4.1.1a
    Sencha cmd v3.0.0.250
    Tested on Eclipse Indigo SR2 and Eclipse Juno SR1
