Why ExtAngular

Angular is a popular JavaScript framework that offers a component-based approach to building web apps. Angular, however, does not include pre-built components required to build enterprise apps. Many enterprise apps require grid, trees, menus, pivot grids, charts, calendar, forms, and other components to deliver the functionality their users need. Building robust, beautiful components that perform well on all devices and platforms is a time-consuming and costly undertaking. Supporting and maintaining those components over the lifetime of your app as browsers and language standards evolve adds even more work to consider.

Angular developers are faced with the choice of either building these components from scratch or getting them from the community. Fortunately, the Angular community is quite large, so there are many pre-built components available. Using components from the open source community, however, introduces some risks and challenges. Release timelines, maintainer commitment, and overall quality vary greatly from project to project. Furthermore, as Angular itself is updated, some libraries may become incompatible while others may require the latest version of Angular. Juggling various component libraries can be a nightmare. The best way to mitigate this problem is to get as many of the components from as few libraries as possible.

ExtAngular gives you the most complete set of components for your Angular apps in a single, commercially supported, and professionally maintained package. Let’s take a look at what’s inside.

ExtAngular Grid

Grids are often the centerpiece of powerful, data-driven applications. The ExtAngular Grid provides a powerful way to display, sort, group, and edit data. All columns can be rearranged, resized, hidden, and sorted. Users can select rows, cells, or columns just like they can in Microsoft Excel. The Grid allows users to edit data on desktop, tablets, and smartphones, and it automatically chooses the right experience on each device. Data can be exported to Excel, CSV, TSV, and other formats.

ExtAngular Grid provides grid filtering, so that end-users can display grid records that meet specified criteria. The supported filter criterias are text, boolean, date and number.

ExtAngular Grid Filtering

ExtAngular Grid Filtering

ExtAngular Grid provides Locking Grid, so that end-users can lock columns or “freeze pane”, similar to Excel. The locking grid provides a column menu that provides users with the ability to lock a grid column on the left region or right region. The locking grid column menu will show current locked status.

ExtAngular Tree

Trees are often required for displaying hierarchical data in desktop, tablet, and smartphone applications. The ExtAngular Tree is derived from the Grid component and inherits all of its features including column resizing, sorting, filtering, and cell editing, as well as drag and drop.

ExtAngular Pivot Grid

Microsoft Excel’s pivot table is a popular mechanism for summarizing, aggregating, and exploring data. The ExtAngular Pivot Grid provides a simple way to bring pivot capabilities to web applications. Pivot Grid enables your users to explore and aggregate multidimensional data with multiple aggregation methods such as sum, count, average, and more.

ExtAngular Calendar

You can add an entire Calendar feature to your app with just a single component. The ExtAngular Calendar and related components digest and visualize event data based on timeframe (months, days, weeks, etc). The Calendar component comes with time zone support, as well as drag and resize validations.

ExtAngular Charts

Charting is an important part of providing great data visualization functionality. The ExtAngular Charts package provides all of the common chart types in 2D and 3D such as pie, bar, column, line, and scatter, as well as more sophisticated charts such as box plots, candlesticks, and radar graphs. Each chart is compatible with all major browsers. Sparkline charts can also be embedded within Grid cells.

ExtAngular D3

D3 is an extremely popular choice for data visualization. The ExtAngular D3 components make it easy to integrate D3 into your Angular application. D3 trees, sunbursts, heatmaps, and more are included as ready-to-use components that update in real time as data changes.

ExtAngular Features

Flexible Layouts

With ExtAngular Layouts, you can handle the sizing and positioning of every component in the app across different form factors and device types. ExtAngular provides layouts that automatically adjust the size of child elements based on the available space.

Responsive Props

Each component can be configured with different prop values for different screen sizes and device platforms using the responsiveConfig and platformConfig props:

Data Package

ExtAngular provides a data package to efficiently scale remote data with ease. The data package allows your application to connect to any back-end data source and provides real-time update capabilities to grids, trees, charts, and more, as well as declarative sorting, filtering, and grouping. It features an extensible validation system with numerous built-in validators for currency, date, email, exclusion, inclusion, format, ip address, length, number, phone, time, and more. Learn more by reading the ExtAngular Data Package guide.

Gestures

ExtAngular components fire synthesized “gesture” events for pointer, touch and mouse events. The support is provided for Tap, DoubleTap, LongPress, Drag, Swipe, Pinch, EdgeSwipe gestures. Learn more by reading the ExtAngular gestures guide.

Application Generator

If you are new to Angular, or do not have an existing application, we recommend using ext-Angular-gen to create a new ExtAngular app.npm install -g @sencha/ext-angular-gen
ext-Angular-gen app -a

Learn more by reading the ExtAngular npm packages guide.

Theming

ExtAngular features an extensive Sass-based theming API that gives developers complete control over the look and feel of their applications. ExtAngular Premium includes Sencha Themer, a tool that allows both designers and developers to create beautiful themes for ExtAngular apps without writing code.
