    Well it looks like Sencha heard our complains.
    Just got an email that the prices for 5 licences is going from 7K to 10K starting with April 1st.

    All I can do is shake my head.

    I can agree with this statement, 'Sencha doesn't want to compete in this market'. So we can all agree single developers, small companies or startup companies are not welcome anymore. It's a fact (shown by the continuously changing licensing and it's price).

    I dont think Ext Js will die over this, but the community will (or already is).

    That's nuts! They should be thankful for existing customers yet they would punish them by charging more? wow... why don't they strategize on how to get new customers instead of thinking about how to get more money from existing customers?

    I always mark answers as being answered, it's the least we can do to express our gratitude. I've lost count of the number of times I've had a problem solved and been able to move on to create/solve new problems :-)

    I think it's important to note that the 10k price is for the premium bundle and the intro and discounted price was clearly marked so you can't be surprised that the price went up to the actual price, this isn't a price hike, the sale price is expiring. I do wonder if Sencha Test is going to be included in the premium bundle, I've seen some bugs but it's still working quite well for my little tests so I'm excited for it.

    If you want Ext JS by itself, it's going to be $4,500ish so by itself it's still not the most expensive for what you get.

    Well, actually as a license owner of ExtJS Standard we started now a new project without ExtJS.

    The license direction of this company is not ok (special for single developer) and the expected way of their product prices does not sound promising. E.g. I would expect to have testing capabilities already included in all products.

    We still have systems based on ExtJS, but we do not expect any further projects in the future using this framework.

    And they simple do not move ... and not having single-user licenses is a dead-end for beginners and single-company persons and this - over the time - will show up in less persons using ExtJS ...

    However it could be deterrent for one man project for a startup. Unless ExtJS strategy is to only cater to enterprise, I feel a less restrictive (free) license for 1 - 2 developers will go way further in enhancing the popularity of ExtJS.
    Note much more innovation comes from a open community collectively contributing towards code development.

    It's ok that Sencha is focusing on big customers, but it's unhealthy to exclude the rest, because without the enthusiasm and energy of the "newborns", the community will get "old" and finally die.

    A vast part of what Sencha is today, is a result of the help, ideas and suggestions of those "newborns".

    So, without the community to move things forward, Sencha will definitely fade away and die.

    They've reached the top growth speed back in the Extjs 4 days, but failed to "refuel" the system and started pushing out some of the "passengers" thinking they will be able to maintain that speed.

    I don't think this will work on a long run.

    Apparently there's a roadmap.
