Ext Core – Intuitive Cross Browser Javascript Library

Posted · Category: Framework, MIT License

Ext Core is a cross-browser JavaScript library for building dynamic web pages. It is lightweight with high performance. The code is clear and maintainable. Ext Core is intuitive with easy to use API as well. You can easily build Carousel, Lightbox, Menu, JSONP, Simple Tabs with Ext Core.

The Carousel example provides a widget for browsing a set of objects. It can be configured to meet any of your specific requirements – auto-play, animations, custom navigation dynamic content and more. The Lightbox example provides a widget used to overlay images on the current page.

The Menu example provides a widget that converts an existing list of links on the page to either a horizontal or vertical menu. The JSONP example shows how you can fetch JSON data from a different domain. It includes a class you can use to connect to any possible web service that supports the JSON format. The Simple Tabs example shows how you can create powerful navigation with only a few lines of code using Ext Core.

  • Looks cool! I’ll give it a try..

    After the uproar regarding the changing of license at Ext, I wonder if the competing library smartclient would not be a better choice.

  • Zyclops

    Ext’s licensing options don’t concern the vast majority of developers, it’s mainly been a rather vocal minority.

    Smartclient has a fare number of good features, but seems to lack some of the polish and the community that extjs has.

  • The Ext guys displayed a startling lack of clue regarding licensing, and made some comments that permanently alienated me from their products (I’m now a happy jQuery user).

    I would suggest that folks considering using Ext look into their history a bit and make sure you want to hook yourself to that type of organization.

    oh my, how did this make it on here?

    Well, with completely free and extensive libraries like Dojo and jQuery UI being available, ExtCore does not seem very exciting :-(
