I would like to see some examples linked from here: http://docs.sencha.com/architect/2-0/#!/guide
All the examples in that guide just show where things are in architect, rather than explain how to use them.
For example: http://docs.sencha.com/architect/2-0...de/controllers
The above shows just what a controllers is, defines what an action is, what is a model.
But there are no examples of models, or controllers, or how to use them in Architect

I started using Architect with ExtJS until I realized that Architect just wasn't that useful for developing real applications. I couldn't figure out why someone would use Architect when they could simply use a text editor, like Aptana, and the ExtJS documentation. The text editor in Architect is really finicky (you have to click in weird places to get the cursor to work) and it doesn't give you all the possible options available in the framework. I'd like to see some examples on how to use Architect as part of a full application development cycle. I just don't know where Architect is supposed to be in the development workflow.
I started to port some Sencha Examples to SA2. If anyone is interested in taking a look, here is the link:
If you are also interested in a particular example from the extjs 4 or sencha touch 2 examples page, pls let me know. I'll do my best to port it and try to help you.
A complete extjs 4 app, using viewport with border layout, and a tree panel as menu - loading the views dynamically is already on the way. As soon as I completed, will update the thread above.

I think some real work application examples would be useful. A very common web application is a "Company Intranet", I feel this would be a good way to show off the framework and also Architects capabilities.
Sencha IO + Sencha Architect 2 Project (Sencha Touch or ExtJS)
Does an example exist of a Sencha IO project documented from creation to existence using Sencha Architect? I can't find one, and I'm struggling to the point where I dont think I can use both products in the same project!
If no example exists could someone document their process or post an example project?
Decoupled UI from Controllers
Current extjs examples lack of Architect's MVC pattern that is hard to replicate in Architect.
For example there is a nice alternative using Action objects and message bus to decouple Controllers from UI elements, where both parties only know about action objects that can be fired and subscribed for by anything.
Also, constantly "promoting to class" really clobbers all the Project Inspector's viewable space.
Also what "bubble events" should be used for and how exactly?
We're working on this
