As we announced last week, Kendo UI will graduate from Beta on November 30th. We’ve worked so hard on this HTML5 framework and we could not be happier to announce it’s release and broad availability. We can’t wait to see what you build with Kendo UI, and I look forward to what 2012 will bring. With three major releases a year, Kendo UI will be a fast moving project with features being added constantly.
Kendo UI Todo List
Since then, I’ve had some time to update the application to support full create, read, update and delete operations. It has a “Single Update Mode” where all actions occur immediately on the server and are reflected in the UI. It also has a “Batch Update Mode” where actions are saved with the “Save Changes” button is clicked.
I also added a “Network Activity” panel that uses a Panel Bar widget and a Tab Strip widget. This shows each request and response made from the client to the server. You can of course do this at a much more detailed level by examining the requests in your respective browser tools.
Did You Say MVC?
While Kendo UI does not feature a full MVC framework - yet, it has a very lightweight sudo-structure for application development that makes life super easy - especially when coupled with the DataSource. I think you will find that the Kendo UI implementation of models and views is exactly what you need to write powerful data bound applications.
Kendo UI Tech Chat
Join me for a live webinar on December 1st from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST where we will spend time taking a deeper dive into the Todo List Application. We’ll take a look at how it’s structured, how it uses models and views, and how you can do batch CRUD operations.
This is much more than just a chat, this is a full on discussion on real world application development practices you can get rolling with today.
It’s A Todo List. How Is That Real World?
