Sencha SDK 2.0.0 Beta 3 :(

Last I worked with Sencha SDK it was still version 1.2.3 beta. I had many difficulties with it and decided it certainly wasn't ready, even for manual builds of my ASP.NET/ExtJS projects. Well, version 2.0.0 beta 3 has been out for a while now and I decided to give it a try.

The Good

I am now able to reference local .html files in the command line parameters. In last version I was only able to point it to an HTTP URL, which didn't work for my Windows-authenticated websites.

The Bad

  1. I am unable to reference a local Default.aspx file - I get an error saying "URI incorrect" or something of the sort
  2. When I made a basic .html page with references to my JavaScript code, in a project that uses ExtJS 4.1 auto-loader without issue, all I got were the following vague errors in the console, when trying to build:
ReferenceError: Can't find variable: Ext

  phantomjs://webpage.evaluate():2
  phantomjs://webpage.evaluate():1
  C:\Program Files (x86)\SenchaSDKTools-2.0.0-beta3\compat\scripts\phantomjs-jsb.js:299

The Verdict

Sencha says it's beta, so I would be very cautious about building any production code base with it. Even if you can get it to build, I'd run a full test pass on the resulting code.
