    Default Sencha Themer only for premium, what the?

    This morning after paying my annual support for my Sencha Complete (now Ext JS Pro) I received an email from Sencha about a Sencha Themer webinar.

    Again I see that this product is only available to premium customers. I really ask myself what exactly the PRO in ExtJS pro means for Sencha. Why is it always that new tools, like this one, comes only available to premium customers.

    A couple of weeks ago I read that Sencha flirts with IBM by building ExtJS frontends for the iSeries.

    Well Sencha, in the meantime my customer asks me why I can't find more hands doing ExtJS. I have to bite my tongue not to say that it is because their software is not written in Angular JS.

    Sencha, make a good gesture and make Sencha Themer available to everyone (or any customer). Everyday I am surprised that when I use PHPStorm that I have so much functionality available that came with a reasonable price and that for Sencha Themer software (as also Sencha Test) I have to upgrade to a totally not needed Premium license for ExtJS and spent a few 1000 extra only to get a hand on tools that should be in the standard package anyway.

    Said to say that I have very loyal customers that are depending on our software build with ExtJS, but my goodness, sometimes I wish I could change the ship.

    Sencha don't charge premium prices for standard requirements.

    We have created features for Ext JS Standard, Pro and Premium to match the value and price of each level. As has always been our policy, we allow any and all customers with a current maintenance and support agreement to upgrade their Sencha licenses to Ext JS Pro or Premium in order to take advantage of new functionality. We are introducing a tremendous amount of new functionality in Ext JS Premium including D3 integration, the calendar component, and Sencha Themer. We are offering existing customers the ability to upgrade to Premium by June 30th and save 20%. I encourage you to attend our upcoming webinars and decide if there is sufficient value in Premium for your business.- Kristin Brennan

    Thanks Mitchell, I'll definitely sign up for the Webinar. I was trying to find out how useful the Sencha Themer could be to a JS developer.

    One thing I am, a JavaScript dev. One thing I'm not, a designer. I think that is how most of us kind of feel like, we know enough CSS/SASS to be dangerous. Sencha Themer brings a GUI to all the SASS variables and such that Ext JS uses with a live preview as you change the variables (uses fashion under the hood). So it abstracts out and helps me theme quicker.

    For designers that are not coders (they don't want to go in and set variables and know what they are doing), that GUI is also extremely helpful. They get color pickers for things so it's much more friendly to those designers.

    I'll admit, my projects I don't always stick to SASS, I tend to just do everything in plain CSS but Themer will make it easier to get into more of a best practices mode.

    Just like Test, Inspector and Architect 3.5, Themer is using electron.

    I am sorry, do you mean that all these 3 apps are build on Electron?

    Yes, all 3 apps are built with Electron as the native packager.
