View Full Version : Need help with SDK for Deployment

23 May 2012, 8:49 PM
Hello everyone, i could use some help making a custom build and minifying using the SDK

I'm new to Ext JS, but not to programming so once i'd downloaded it i rifled through the examples and fairly quickly put together something that did exactly what i wanted, drawing all the classes from ext-debug. It runs fine, there aren't any actual problems with the code, but since it isn't minified and loads the entire library it's far from fast.

Since i lept in boots and all i'm not quite sure how to backtrack and set everything up so that i can use the SDK to make a custom build with only the (few) classes i need and minify everything so it runs faster.

Is there any chance someone can step me through what i've gotta do right from the beginning like the hasty fool i am, so i can still use the code i wrote but build a new class library for it and minify the pair of them? Best to assume i've done nothing besides writing the code (or more accurately, probably done it wrong, lol)

I have now... although i'm struggling to see how that helps with what i'm asking. Hm.

Perhaps i phrased it wrong, using the word class or load when i shouldn't have, i don't know. All my code does is create 2 toolbars, some actions and a DatePicker. I was under the impression Ext-debug you insert via the HTML has the code for all the types of objects i might need to create (in a readable, and therefore debuggable format) but the SDK gives you the option to create a different *.js containing only the ones you need and nothing else.

If my above assumption is incorrect and i need to always include one of the core files that's one less thing to worry about, but i'm still not sure how i can use the SDK to minify my code
