Getting started with Sencha Touch

Friday, April 29th, 2011 by Servage

Recently I described Sencha Touch, a mobile development framework which allows you to create rich web applications. It gives an almost-native experience on various mobile platforms like iOS and Android, while using open web standards such as HTML5, Css3 and JavaScript behind the scenes. Read the previous posts about Sencha Touch and converting into native apps for more information.

Some users are having difficulties getting started developing, because basing most of the (or the entire) code on JavaScript is new to them. Most have some experience, for example with jQuery, integrating plugins or other JavaScript functionality into websites, but creating an entire MVC app in JavaScript seems to be a bit overwhelming. But rest assured: It’s actually quite simple! And definitely not as hard as you might fear! There are various great resources to get started.


If you have no HTML or CSS experience as well, please check out the tutorials and references at W3. They are very extensive and easy to understand for beginners.

Good luck with your mobile apps! Feel free to submit links to your projects in comments :-)
