This course focuses on the new features in Sencha's ExtJS 5 update. The major new features in this upgrade from Sencha that are explained include Model-View-View-Model (MVVM) architecture, 2-way data binding, formulas, tablet support, Routing Translations, and significant new capabilities with models and stores.
Core Library Updates Hi, I'm Peter Kellner for Pluralsight, and let's talk about Ext JS 5 Core Library Updates. The good news is that everything you know about Ext JS 4 carries through to Ext JS 5. There are minor changes that you have to implement, such as the property root has been named to rootProperty on reader classes, but I think we all have to admit that naming an attribute root was a bad idea in the first place for obvious reasons. For the most part, we just get more and better capabilities in Ext JS 5 than we had before. In this introduction to the core library changes, I plan on going through an overview of what these changes are. Many of these changes are far-reaching and powerful, such as the new component. bind, giving us two-way data binding linking complex UI control together without having to do complex and confusing listener implementations. I plan on mentioning the core library components that are added, and not go into extensive detail on the usage of that new capability. Later modules will dive more deeply into those capabilities and we will give you a heads up to look for things to come in modules down the road. IE6 and IE7 support is dropped, it's big enough to mention here, so I'll do that now. And finally, though not normally thought of as core, with the release of Ext JS 5 Cmd, or known as Command, has been enhanced to help make building, packaging, and maintaining Ext JS 5 applications much easier. As Cmd is used to generate your initial application, as well as create new models and views, the new directory structure has also changed with the new version 5 of Cmd, or Command.
