Sencha Visual Studio Plug-In, Joins the Microsoft Ecosystem

Sencha has announced that it is now a premier level partner of the Microsoft Visual ecosystem. And to support this partnership it has launched an early access version to its much awaited Visual Studio Plug-in. The plugin allows the developers to use the Sencha Touch frameworks within their Integration Development Environment. The plugin uses the Microsoft’s standard VSIX file extension for installation on compatible versions of Visual Studio. It is compatible with Ext JS 4.2 and later versions.
Apart from the Visual Studio Plugin, the Sencha also launched its Eclipse Plugin. Both these plugins were launched at the Microsoft Visual Studio Live Event which took place between 16-20 November in Orlando, Florida. At the event, Sencha touch demonstrated how the combination of Microsoft Visual Studio and Sencha Web Application Lifecycle Management platform can be used to simplify and speed up the design and development of HTML5 applications.

The launch of this Visual Studio plugin will help .Net developers to get an efficient set of tools using Sencha Touch which would enable them to create sophisticated web applications that can not just run on mobile but on tablets and desktop as well. The plugins help to deliver a consistent code completion experience for the ASP.NET web application projects for Sencha Ext JS inside the Visual Studio. It will also enable Microsoft developers to easily navigate through the network and create custom classes.

Developers are looking for better options to create mobile applications and the launch of this plugin is the first initiative of the Sencha Touch to work together with Microsoft and create wonderful applications.
