I'm just trying to figure out GXT because we already use Ext 1 and 2 and I'm trying to start using GWT (I'm fully ready to start migrating our apps from Ext 2 because of the sheer size of the download, which is killing our response times over a smallish WAN connection) and I've been following GXT since very nearly the beginning, though I'm only now starting to use it in a real-world application.
I'm a little confused on why the ext-all.css file isn't included by either the main GXT module itself, or the Theme module. Is it really the case that, besides including an 'inheirit' in my module XML, I also need to include a stylesheet reference to "css/ext-all.css"? Or am I missing something?
Along those same lines, is there any way I can tell the generators to SKIP copying the css and images folders? I'm going to have quite a number of modules that use GXT and I certainly don't want 2.5MB of duplicate images strewn throughout my SVN tree (GWT duplicates enough stuff as it is). I'll keep a single copy of the images folder as a peer to my module folders and include a stylesheet that imports the base Ext CSS from there.
BTW- Is file size the reason GXT isn't using ImageBundles? Would the resulting bundle be too big? Or is there another reason?
