Get hands-on experience building speedy mobile web apps with Sencha Touch 2.3, the user interface JavaScript framework built specifically for the mobile Web. With this book, you’ll learn how to build a complete touch application, called Find a Cab, that has the look and feel of a native app on Android, iOS, Windows, and BlackBerry devices.

In the process, you’ll work with Sencha’s model-view-controller (MVC) components for form handling, styling, integration with outside data, and other elements. The Sencha Touch learning curve can be steep, but if you’re familiar with JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, and JSON, this guide will get you up to speed through real-world examples.

  • Learn the fundamentals, including the class and layout systems
  • Use the Sencha MVC architecture to structure your code
  • Implement data models and stores, and create an event controller
  • Make remote connections by implementing server proxies
  • Save data offline by implementing client proxies
  • Work with view components such as maps, lists, and floating panels
  • Implement and handle forms, and construct a custom theme
  • Create production and native build packages

      Comments about oreilly Hands-On Sencha Touch 2:

      From the start, I could'nt find the examples being used in the text. The git repository is called cookbook-examples, which is not the name of the book, so I wondering have the right repository, or the right book?

      The there is no "Chapter" tree structure in the source code I cloned from Git. Eventually I ran 'find cookbook-examples -exec egrep -Hil ...' etc to locate the source code.

      It would have been nice if the author had told the reader where to find the examples. Structuring the source code folders into chapters is a pretty common way of making it easy.

      So we are off to a very bad start, the book is too hard to work with if I have dig around to find the code - disappointed!
