The Only JavaScript Component Library You Will Ever Need

There’s a lot of punch added to your favorite Angular, React, Vue and jQuery UI libraries in the latest Kendo UI release:

  • 25+ new components across the board to build powerful web apps
  • More tools and features to simplify the collaboration between developers and designers: expanded Figma design kits (new components added) and theme improvements
  • Native Angular 13 support
  • New sample applications
  • And more!

You may have noticed a common thread in our last few releases, starting with the release of the Telerik and Kendo UI Kits for Figma in R3 2021, that will continue in 2022. We are making sure that Kendo UI not only saves you a ton of time when building JavaScript apps, but it can also serve as your solid foundation to create, maintain and make the most of your company’s very own design system, no matter how big your team is.

Our first release for the new year ships on January 19, 2022. Join the live Kendo UI R1 2022 release webinar on Tuesday, Feb 1, 2022 at 11:00 am ET as our Developer Advocates Alyssa Nicoll and Kathryn Grayson Nanz and Product Manager Carl Bergenhem present in detail the major updates across our JavaScript web UI libraries.
