Sencha Intros ExtAngular Component Library
March 15, 2019
has released its ExtAngular component library with hundreds of pre-built
UI components that help Angular developers expedite application
development, while reducing integration and maintenance risks.
ExtAngular includes the most complete set of professionally-tested,
commercially-supported UI components, making it easier than ever to
deliver visually rich, enterprise-scale web apps.
Building robust, attractive components that perform well on all devices
and platforms is a time-consuming and costly undertaking. Many apps

Developers can use ExtAngular’s built-in Material design-inspired theme,
eliminating the need to construct custom styles and making it easy to
create a fresh, modern user experience with minimal effort. ExtAngular
also includes plugins for Webpack to optimize builds, and theming tools
to give designers and developers complete control over an application’s
look and feel. Themes can be easily modified or extended with Sencha

without writing a single line of code.
ExtAngular provides advanced capabilities for all its 100+ Material

“It’s not easy to build an entire component library and maintain it over
time, especially without any technical support,” said Sandeep Adwankar,
senior product manager at Sencha. “And relying on components from the
open source community introduces risks and challenges, as release
timelines, maintainer commitment, and overall quality vary from project
to project. ExtAngular solves this problem, enabling Angular developers
to focus on what they do best while providing outstanding tools and
