Sencha Designer 2 Beta is out

I am a big fan of Ext Designer 1.2. It saves a ton of time designing a UI. Doesn't help much with MVC or writing code though.

It has been re-branded as Sencha Designer 2 (due to Sencha touch integration), and has built-in code editing and MVC! The beta is out now.

You can try it here:

Sencha didn't link to the docs anywhere, but here they are:


  1. Thanks for the blog post!

    We have done a lot of work in the MVC code generated by the designer.

    We welcome any feedback you have.

  2. Hello,

    I am new to ExtJS and have been given a web app to fix(make 508 compliant), built with ExtJS 2.0.2. The ExtJS files the app uses are
    ext-all.js, ext-all-debug.js and ext-base.js. Is it possible to migrate to ExtJS 4.0.7 from 2.0.2? Where do I start? Also would you recommend buying this book for a newbie like me?

    Here is the link to the book.

    Thanks for your help.


  3. @anonymous I don't know too much about Ext 2, but I have a feeling it would be a fair amount of work to convert to 4. There is an Ext 3 to Ext 4 conversion guide on sencha's learning site.

    Regarding the book, it is by Loaine Groner, who has a good blog on Ext, so is probably worth considering. You might want to wait for a full book (as opposed to a "first look" book). Jay Garcia writes great ext books too.

    Good luck!
