What's next in KendoReact
Short-Term Goals (January 2021—May 2021)
Over the next couple of months, the KendoReact team will be focused on improving the already extensive set of UI components that we offer along with introducing brand new components.
When it comes to new components, the team will be working on:
- The Skeleton component
- The External DropZone component
Beyond these components we will also look at adding highly-requested features to our existing components. While we will look to add features to many components, the bigger items will include:
- Grid - Range Selection, Expand/Collapse All Groups, and using Cell Placeholders during Virtualization
- Scheduler - Multiple Event Selection and Adaptive Slot Height
- All components - adding examples for both Hooks and Class Component approaches where applicable
As always, the KendoReact team will also be addressing bug fixes across the entire suite.
Our Long-Term Vision
Beyond these short-term goals of new UI components and enhancing existing ones, looking forward we will continue to build up the list of available components. This includes not only working towards component and feature parity with the other libraries found in the Kendo UI bundle, but also creating unique UI components for the React community.
We believe that all applications, whether they are used by internal or external users, should follow modern design best practices. We know that it is a luxury to write complex UI components from scratch. This is why we've created KendoReact.
Our ultimate goal is to provide React developers with an unmatched UI component suite that is modern, fully-featured, covers a wide breadth of scenarios, and turns React developers into superheroes: this is our vision for KendoReact.
