We all witnessed the full licensing toil wrt ExtJS over the years. Now the team has released Ext Core 3.0 beta with an MIT license.
What is different?
Ext Core is a subset of the upcoming Ext JS 3.0 release optimized for speed & file size. Developers familiar with Ext JS can leverage their existing skillset to provide an enhanced user experience to their web pages.
- DOM manipulation and traversal
- CSS management
- Event handling
- Dimensions and Sizing
- AJAX and JSON Support
In addition to providing cross-browser abstractions for the DOM, Ext Core also includes some of the most used and popular utilities from Ext JS.
- Classical Inheritance Class System
- Observable Class
- Markup generation and Templating
- Timed code execution
- URL encoding and decoding
It appears that you get the guys of Ext via MIT now, and if you want the component library, styles etc, that is when you go to ExtJS.
What do you think of the move?
