View Full Version : Getting started with Sencha Touch, simple app, newbie needs direction

18 Oct 2011, 11:21 AM
I'm new to Sencha Touch and looking to get moving in the right direction for a simple mobile app.
I'm not sure if it's best to integrate viewports, listviews, data stores, or MVC, etc.

The app is pretty self explanatory by these mockups. Options on page 1 lead to more sub-options on page 2, and each sub-option leads to a map (individual Ext.map's with several points, or points pulled from a data store, or, best scenario, pulled from a private API from a Rails app).

Can anyone lead me in the right direction to develop this?

This would be a good place to start:
- http://docs.sencha.com/touch/1-1/#!/api/Ext.Application

Your "viewport" is in fact a panel, and it contains "cards" (each another panel or container of some kind).

I would start there and post specific issues you encounter to the forums.

hey i wrote a app that used a nested list recently and displayed data on a class,

google offers a great map that works in Sencha Touch.

have a look at this screencast


(http://www.sencha.com/learn/intro-to-the-nested-list-component/)then have a look at the example of a map in the examples included in the download
