New prototyping application from the market leader in JavaScript application development enables fast development of rich internet apps, in an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop environment.

Ext Designer - rapid prototyping of Ext JS rich internet applications

“Ext Designer is great for both individual developers and collaborative development teams. Its intuitive, easy-to-use interface can be used by anyone involved in an application’s design.” -- Abraham Elias, founder and CEO of Ext JS.

Ext JS — the company that enables application developers to build rich, sustainable web applications faster than ever — has shipped Ext Designer. Ext Designer is a desktop interface builder for Ext JS developers that accelerates the time to create rich internet applications (RIA). Ext Designer is also one of the first showcases of an HTML 5-based desktop application, using next-generation HTML 5 technologies like local storage, CSS3 and canvas to deliver a full desktop application experience.

Available immediately for every major OS, including Windows, Mac, and Linux, Ext Designer enables application developers to rapidly assemble their web application visual structure and immediately export tight, efficient code. Featuring a simple drag-and-drop interface that is ideal for less-technical users, Ext Designer lets even business analysts and designers create prototypes, which can then be developed into full applications by developers.

“Ext Designer is great for both individual developers and collaborative development teams. Its intuitive, easy-to-use interface can be used by anyone involved in an application’s design,” said Abraham Elias, founder and CEO of Ext JS. “Ext JS developers will find that Ext Designer dramatically simplifies their life by letting them focus on the big picture of application design, without resorting to hand coding every UI element. Better still, Designer itself proves that almost any application – desktop or web – can now be built using standard web technologies, running without plug-ins on every platform and every browser.”

”Today, it’s a tedious process to design a complex form so it looks exactly as our business users want. With Ext Designer, this is now incredibly easy,” said Kevin Vaughan, application developer at Intervolve, a maker of on-demand supply chain software.

Ext Designer features

  • Fast prototyping of the look and feel of an application. Ext Designer enables developers and designers to assemble robust layouts by dragging and dropping their components together.
  • Fine-tuning without hand coding. Easily change the layout of a specific component, or use the inspector to fine-tune detailed properties.
  • User client-side data stores. Ext Designer includes several new ways to incorporate and configure data stores, which can then be bound to components like DataGrids and Trees. Whether your data is in JSON, XML, a simple JavaScript array, or an Ext Direct connection, Ext Designer can help you build a data store for it faster than ever.
  • Compatible with other development tools. Once the application design is finished, code can be exported on a component-by-component basis, as either JSON or JavaScript classes. Ext Designer creates tight JavaScript that can be imported into any popular IDE.

Pricing and availability
Ext Designer is available for immediate download at the introductory price of $219, and is available for Mac, Windows and Linux.
