    How would a data generator be used to build your views?

    My point was that it's easier to use a tool such as Mockaroo to generate JSON than to write it by hand.

    For a grid to display the data from something like Mockaroo sure but not to create the grid to display the data. The grid is the view and you couldn't use random data to create that view.

    I was just talking about defining the views he showed in that wifreframe, All views should be defined as a strict a form os JSON as you can manage now. No functions at all. Just configuration values.

    Code:
    {
        xtype: 'tabpanel',
        items: [{
            title: 'Tab 1',
            xtype: 'grid'
    ...
    }
    To get get to where you have that kind of map of the outermost components that your app needs is very easy. I'd say quicker than peeking into various property grids and comboboxes and choosing all the xtypes and configs that you need.

    Just write your config objects.

    When you have very complex views, having a drag/drop IDE is far preferable than having to edit the layout code yourself, particularly when your users want you to redesign the layout.

    Depends on the dev. Overall, apps like Architect just slow me down but that’s just a dev thing. It’s like telling a vim user VSCode or something is better, they will never agree

    For my day job (as the one and only full stack developer for a range of apps) Architect is a huge time saver, but it can also slow me down in some ways (but I wouldn't want to be without it). At home, now that I'm tinkering with a private project in Ext JS (where I don't have Architect), I'm having to learn how to do things manually, I feel like a baby chick being pushed out of the nest by its parents and having to fly all by myself. It's a little tedious but also liberating. I'm finding that I've been doing some things in a not-so-good way all these years because of Architect.

    In any case, to quickly get the UI code done for a new form or whatever, it's great. Whether you choose to stay within the strait jacket or fork it and hand-edit it from there is up to the developer :-)

    For me, laying out the view by constructing complex components is the easiest part of building an application with Ext JS. In many cases, understanding the elements of these components has been crucial in extending Ext JS to implement features that are not supported natively. I have been able to add MVVM support to configurations and existing components in order to improve the most difficult parts of my applications. These tend to be the model management, controllers, and view models. The addition of view models and MVVM bindings have been a substantial improvement, because they allow me to separate the management of application state from other responsibilities of a controller.
