When I think of Ext, I think of a framework that really cares about the look and feel of components. Well, it seems like a real community has joined Jack and Rey and we get to see some of their recent work.
Rey details the community work:
- LiveGrid by MindPatterns: Thorsten Suckow-Homberg developed an extension that uses a buffering technique to load a specific number of records and after scrolling past the last buffered row, submits a new XHR call to return the next subset of records.
- Slate Theme by J.C.: The Slate theme really stands out for itâ€™s visual appeal as well as the clean work produced by J.C.
This is certainly not an exhaustive list of the available plugins for Ext but it does provide a flavor of what our community is doing to enhance the capability of the framework. The number of plugins continues to grow with both the Ext Extensions page and the Examples and Extras discussion group being updated almost on a daily basis. Community-contributed extensions are an integral part of the Ext project and we certainly value the hard work and professionalism demonstrated by many of these contributors. We will continue to spotlight plugins on a regular basis to ensure that our community members are recognized for their efforts.
