Kendo UI ®

Everything for building web and mobile apps with HTML5 and JavaScript

Fast, light, complete: 70+ jQuery-based UI widgets in one powerful toolset.
AngularJS integration, Bootstrap support, mobile controls, offline data solution.


Integrates Well with Others

Get full support for AngularJS and Twitter Bootstrap out of the box, or use your favorite JavaScript framework.
Use only what you need, without having to change allegiances.

The Kendo UI framework is seamlessly integrated with AngularJS. From Grid to Scheduler to Chart, the tight AngularJS integration in Kendo UI tools enables you to drop a few script and style files into your page and get instant—and complete—Kendo UI access via directives.
Twitter Bootstrap is a very effective method for creating consistent cross-browser layout in your application without much CSS work required on your part. Kendo UI widgets can be easily used alongside this framework. The look and feel of Bootstrap is replicated in Kendo UI projects by applying the Twitter Bootstrap theme.

After being in the industry for over 20 years I have seen a lot of frameworks come and go, but Kendo UI is by far the best for hybrid/mobile/native apps. Not only for its ease of use but it plays well with others


Great JavaScript components for fast and high quality web app development. Kendo UI is very easy to use and very fast to get results from.


As a developer working for the DOD we were able to rapidly integrate Kendo UI into a pre-existing C# application providing functionality to the client they were not even aware they wanted. This cut down majorly on cost saving roughly 1+ million. I would recommend Kendo UI to anyone who wants to impress their client with amazing UI. Thanks Telerik Team!
