View Full Version : Good Tutorial for Beginners

3 Oct 2019, 1:53 PM
I am trying to learn Ext JS and how the whole structure of how this framework works but for two days now I am not able to find any useful information.
The Sencha Docs themselves are good if you struggle with specific components or a detailed implementation. But there is no good source which explains for example why I need these freaking confusingly named files like View, ViewModel, Controller and so on. Also it is not good elaborated how they connect with each other explicitly. It is always the same bullshit. The tutorials always skip these parts and say 'you write in this and there, you write that' and so on. But I want to know WHY THE HELL I NEED TO DO THAT. So if there is anybody out there who has a good source for ExtJS beginners like me, please help me out.

next time you should be less heated if you expect to get an answer from the community or anyone else.

if you have trouble understanding the app architecture you can take a look here https://docs.sencha.com/extjs/7.0.0/guides/application_architecture/application_architecture.html.

Also MVC or MVVM are no patterns exclusive to ExtJs they are very common in computer science. It is not Senchas job to teach you the basic of software engineering.

Oh yeah you're probably right. I was just so frustrated with everything at the moment as the learning curve with ExtJS is quite steep tbh, sorry for that.
Thank you for answering anyways, I'll definitely take a look at the stuff you mentioned. Take care!
