Should GO use the Extjs library?

Postby mschering » Fri May 11, 2007 3:06 pm

What do you people think about the Extjs library?

http://www.extjs.com

Show case:

http://www.extjs.com/deploy/ext/docs/index.html

Scroll down to see the examples.

I've already been playing around with this. I've built the Group-Office notes module entirely with this lib and it works excellent.

Now I'm thinking of rebuilding all modules with this lib for GO 3.0 in the future.

Please motivate your poll option!

Thanks.

I voted for yes because I like to see a ajax interface.

what I like about Extjs (I just see it the first time now) already is that you can hide the panes you have. Just like you can see in the "Complex Layout" example. Extremely handy for people that has a low screen resolution, like some of my clients still have :(

I am experimenting with another cms system which has built-in support for some ajax frameworks and it is quite nice.

these are the 2 ajax frameworks that are used in that cms:

MooTools - http://mootools.net/
Script.aculo.us - http://script.aculo.us/

I think that the manager of the cms itself is a bit of ajax too, you can find the cms at http://www.modxcms.com. You can also see that it has a very clean GUI, while it still has a lot of options.

I can maybe help you with designing new gui's/layouts if you want to go "ajax". Maybe we should talk about it (both the ajax and cms things) over msn (I never see you online anymore these days?).

Do you have a demo of that new notes module? I like to see it.

No MSN distracts too much :)

I don't have a demo yet. It's too complicated to explain now but when I do I will put it on the forum.

Here's a screenshot. The top left frame will be used for treeviews in email module and file module, Small calendar for the calendar module etc.

Yes and with the panes you can do a lot of nice stuff. I was thinking of making a search pane. So when you search on top the search pane appears on the right side of the screen.
This way you have your search results on the right and you can view them in the middle.

There is also a drag and drop class in the library. So this will be implemented too.

Drag & drop in calendar, e-mail folders, file folders etc.

I go for right click features and drag and drop.

Bluetie (www.bluetie.com) has it nicely done but GO loads way faster

I just downloaded the trunk. It is too buggy at the moment to do beta testing, but once it's on beta stage, I will start reporting bugs.
