Apologies for the self-proclaimed "Pro" title. My cred: 1 year ExtJS3 and ExtJS4 for almost a year now, since it came out. I build enterprise portals for large organizations and I usually develop remotely over VPN in Clients' environments. This means I do not always have the luxury of installing Visual Studio, so I have to stick to a minimal setup. However, it works great!
Let's start of with my favorite: Notepad++
- Small download & very fast application
- Use "Explorer" plugin (left panels in the above screenshot)
- Shown with "Obsidian" theme
- Has syntax highlighting for pretty much every language
- Can zoom in/out of text very easy ; great for working with text on 24"+ monitors
- Great support for file searching & replacing
- Can collapse sections
See Previous Example first!
In this tutorial we'll make a Windows batch script to automate building of the custom ExtJS4 framework. We'll also touch on declaring dependencies in custom components. Ultimately, this serves for much faster load times and less wasted bandwidth:
In this tutorial I will show you how to reduce your ExtJS4 application load times by half, using Sencha SDK Tools. Also, I will show you how to do a clean custom build, the kind that doesn't cause your production code to occasionally download JS files via autoloader. Another gem of this example - we'll get our "compiled" JS down to just about 100 KB, instead of 500 KB+ that results if you follow other tutorials.
