Last night, I spent several house studying ext js. I am learning how to
both configure and implement layouts using ext js, which
can be implemented on both IOS and Android devices. Dynamically lay outing
with the ext js api can be quite tricky for many reasons. I don’t consider
based frameworks. JS seems to be a pretty hot language of choice for many
web developers. I plan on studying the syntax more.
Before coding up
a layout- i started off with simple sketches. Seems like when it comes to
dynamic layouts and content nested within itself, sketches seem to be
highly important. I architect-ed nearly 10 ideas on paper. It was actually pretty fun. I was trying to “wrap my head” around coding panels within panels-stacking them vertically and horizontally. Once, this step is understood–you can create the most advanced of advanced layouts for your device.
So why create layouts dynamically instead of visually? Well, working with flash for the past 7+ or so years…i have always done everything visually and used a little xml here and there, but in order to achieve more I have to conform and start coding dynamically. It’ll help me better in the long run.
