    Default Answered: Using Extjs MVC in the frontend

    Hi there,

    I've been a big fan of BackboneJS (and still am) until I discover Extjs4 in my new Job. I can only tip my hat for what it can do! Now my question is whether it is possible (or recommanded) to use Extjs in the frontOffice without using its components. I only want to take advantage of both the MVC architecture that it offers and the module loader feature. With backbone, I use AMD and requireJs for module loading and it's a pain and very hard to generate
    production build.
    I'm wondering also if Extjs will have a JavaScript routing engine in the next version.

    Your advice will be very appreciated,
    Thank You.

  2. Yes and no, it doesn't bother me at all to include the full package in the fronend.. but it's like a massive motor in a tiny, lightweight car...

    You don't want to use the components so your page is just html/css/js (maybe other frameworks?) and you want to use MVC (I guess controller part)?

    Yes exactly, I want only to use its MVC Architecture like backbone does. What classes I have to include to acheive that?

    Thanks.

    Then I think loading Ext JS is overkill for what you want.
