small website using EXT - screenshots and demo movie
I've created a small website base on EXT as my semester 1 project in Aptech - a computer education. It's not available in the web yet. But I have some screenshots to show you. And the most important is: I want to say thank you so much. Thank you, Jack, for developed such a great library!!! And thank you, all the ext users in this forum, who helped me when I had troubles, and who posted many great articles from which I had learned so much not only about EXT but also about js, json, oop ...
I'm still developing my website. So any comment would be great
You can see the screenshots and demo video here: http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-lurco...=1766#comments

congrats. I don't see the web application model working well for most public websites. I mean it looks nice but most people barely know how to use regular sites, let alone web applications as complicated as that.
take a look @ netflix. they have ajax + regular web site features.

yeah, I agree with you all.
At the very first, I decided to use EXT for admin-part, and normal html with some ajax functions only when needed for user-part of the website. But after finished viewing/edit/delete users information with grid (admin-part), I went to trouble. My code was not really clear at all, it was confusing and really hard to extend. It's easy to understand: I was so new with either ext and oop programing in js.
Then I found go.waka.ca and interested in it. I decided to throw all those code and write the user part with ext all by myself, with as little copy-paste as I can. I found that I can understand and maintain my own code easier and faster than I was with other's
So I developed the user part all in ext. And after finished (finished current version - I have so many idea to extend my project) I think it's not hard for young people to use the website. All my friend seem interested in using and discovery its functions.
Beside, I think: It's really a good time to try something different when I was in school, isn't it? In the future real project [as I'll find a job in a real company after I finished year 1], may be I won't have chances to work with as new and brilliant library like ext because of business terms. SO I want to do it right now
