    Default Ouch - Scathing Ext/Sencha code review!

    Just curious to get the community's feedback on this.

    I started to read, but gave up.

    It's a whole load of pointless mental masturbation from someone with an obvious axe to grind, and a grudge against Ext.

    If they could produce a better product they would have.

    No large software product has a perfect codebase. Particularly version 1.0.

    And the author of that was not privy to the discussions which produced the code, so he's not in a position to judge.

    I pretty much stopped taking him seriously at

    Dito! No chance to persevere until the end here...

    There are people outside who should rather spend their time in producing a better framework that doesn't contain all that "rookie" code than judge about something they don't have a clue about backgrounds or internals.
    ... if there will ever be such a product at all...

    This David Mark has already built a library... But all you can download is minified code. Maybe this guy has to conceal something

    hmm... ok...
    If he will succeed with that strategy... I doubt...
    Anyway... saw Sencha in an article about smartphone programming in the last c't (German computer magazine)... nothing about his lib... so much for that...

    his library : http://www.cinsoft.net/
    I admit extjs have bugs.But it's normal for me.Once i haved outsource people to programming and he said 'No bugs in our coding' .The outsource people going off and never heard since.Hmm i had to repair the bugs.If no bugs there wouldn't Microsoft on windows update or apt-get or yum to update.

    My point is Extjs have bugs and there's people here to repair it......

    It's not just Sencha, he seems to have a bone to pick with every JS framework out there.

    The chap seems a bit unhinged!

    Ranting in each library's discussion forum, and then replying to himself?

    He doesn't seem to like jQuery either

    Sorry, when it comes to David Mark:

    The only winning move is not to play.
