Back when Flash was all the rage, one would find experimental sites like this all the time. It seems less common in the HTML5 world, which really makes this a gem.
It’s like this: The browser’s doomed, because apps are the future. Wait! Apps are doomed because HTML5 is the future. I see something almost every day saying one or the other. Only it’s mostly wrong.
Today we’re proud to announce the release of Sencha Touch 2.0. With a huge focus on performance, simplified API, and native packaging on both Mac and Windows, we’re certain it will change the way you think about mobile apps.
I am honored to work with the team that created Sencha Touch 2. It is, without a doubt, the richest, smoothest, and easiest way to write HTML5 apps for iOS, Android, and Blackberry.
I got to the party tardy with H5B, having just started using it a few weeks ago, but I love this project. It’s hard to deny that it’s a great, easy to use, starting point for HTML5 projects — chock full of best practices. Although it’s still Ant-based, the build system is pretty lovely as well. If you haven’t already tried it out, version 2 should add in enough to push you over the edge.
You may have noticed posts trailing off over the past month (sorry!), but this redesign is what’s been stealing all my time. This is my post on the Sencha blog about how the redesign came to be, new features on the site, and a little behind-the-scenes look at how it was made.
I think there’s actually a very good reason why we should, in fact, embrace the term “HTML5” as an overarching buzzword for this latest round of web standards and specifications. Our industry has proven on several occasions that we don’t get excited about new, interesting, and useful technologies and concepts until such a buzzword is in place.Jeff Croft, On the term “HTML5”
