Visual App Builder
Create your Sencha Touch 2 and Ext JS 4 applications by dragging and dropping components and previewing your application live.
Create your Sencha Touch 2 and Ext JS 4 applications with drag and drop components and a live preview canvas. Toolboxes make it easy to access a component’s configuration and setting properties such as a button’s title, or grid’s data store.
Models, stores and proxies are also configured visually with easy-to-use visual representations of data as well as the backing store so developers can quickly connect to existing backend data sources and test their connectivity is functional. Models are defined by describing their meta data and Architect 2 lets developers visualize the data structure, including typing all from within the Project Inspector.
