Sencha Architect Project Templates
These templates are divided into the following categories for the Ext and Touch frameworks.
- Basic - Very simple, boilerplate templates.
- Layouts - Common application layouts.
- Starter Apps - Simple yet fully-functional apps.
- All templates should be as usable as possible.
- Use the least amount of code possible.
- Use camelCase for all functions, local vars, ref's, and clientId's.
- Use PascalCase/TitleCase for all classes (top-level views, not instances).
- Use all lowercase for aliases.
- Assign itemId to all components that need to be referenced.
- All classes should be assigned aliases.
- Selectors should use the parent user alias followed by the clientId where possible. Ex: "mypanel #myButton".
- Custom CSS/styles should be avoided.
- Models should be single terms, such as Task, Person or Record.
- Stores and Controllers should be plural terms such as Tasks, People, Records.
- View should use verbose naming, such as TaskGrid, RecordForm, etc.
- Use detailed comments in controller code for new user education.
- All main view classes should be named MainView and have it's itemId set to mainView.
- Variables should be hoisted where appropriate. Proper tabbed formatting should be used and comments should be appended to end of line. Example:
var x = 1, // First y = 2; // Second
