    For our new web product line I decided not to go with ExtJS, even though we could have reused licenses so it's not even a cost issue. No community means no future, so you have to look at how much...

    The danger in this strategy is that the community becomes smaller, more insular, which over time makes it hard to gain new customers.

    Not quite. You're distributing what you send to the browser, which is to say the JS code. Since GPL ExtJS is client-side code, that means anything built on top of it also becomes GPL. You can't build...

    I would never use Cmd because I don't have the source code for it. Out of painful experience I have learned that on a long lived codebase relying on no-source components is a death wish. In a pinch,...

    For what it's worth, we tried using ExtJS charts and found them not powerful enough (especially for very large / complicated graphs). We ended up using amcharts instead.
