It provides a complete rich set of GUI controls, has an excellent API for AJAX and REST, and helps users to organize their code with Model View ViewModel (MVVM) or the MVC architecture, and supports two-way data binding, responsive layouts, responsive design, and more.
This book starts with a clear step-by-step installation guide for Ext JS 6 and the additional tools required for development on both Mac and Windows operating systems. It then covers the core concepts and fundamentals of Ext JS 6.
We move on to focus on multiple basic GUI controls such as buttons, message boxes, and menus, and a sample project that covers the fundamental and basic GUI controls. You'll also learn how to design a form with form fields such as a text field, number field, date picker, label, and radio button, and learn about form validation. We proceed to show you how to organize your code using the MVVM application architecture, and you'll then jump into advanced controls such as Grids, Trees, Data Views, and Charts.
You'll also learn about the API required for AJAX and REST communication, and learn all need to know about Ext JS Data Packages. A working RESTful API sample project is included to help you explore the Data Packages. Finally, we end with a discussion on responsive design, theming your application, and the available plugins.
Style and approach
This is an example-based guide to help you develop rich Internet applications using Ext JS 6. Most of the chapters start with a particular concept and code example, and end with a cool sample project that uses the concepts learned in the chapter.
