Sencha Announces ExtReact for Adding Powerful UI Components to React Applications

New React Components Help Developers Deliver Visually Stunning Data-Intensive React Applications

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - May 16, 2017) - Sencha, the company that powers tens of thousands of commercial data-intensive web applications around the world with its rich set of professionally tested and supported components, today announced ExtReact, designed to enable React developers to add beautiful and powerful UI components to their applications with efficiency and ease.

Until now, React developers have been forced to build their own UI components from scratch -- a time consuming process that comes with significant integration and long-term maintenance risks. With the release of ExtReact, developers can quickly add sophisticated, commercially tested and supported components to their React applications, accelerate time to market, and reduce upgrade and maintenance burdens. ExtReact offers more than 115 UI components that are fully supported and designed to interact and work together seamlessly -- over the lifetime of the application.

With optimized performance and Sencha technical support, ExtReact makes delivering visually stunning, data-intensive apps simpler and faster than ever before. Developers can use the built-in Material design inspired theme, eliminating the need to construct custom styles and making it easy to create a fresh, modern user experience with minimal effort. Themes can also be easily modified or extended with Sencha Themer, enabling both developers and designers to create compelling themes without writing a single line of code.

ExtReact provides advanced capabilities for all its components. Key features include:

  • Keyboard navigation and focus management enable users to easily navigate the application and improve web application accessibility.
  • Flexible layout system ensures the proper sizing and positioning of all components and eliminates the need for separate stylesheets.
  • Sophisticated data management allows users to efficiently and easily handle any size and source of remote data across device types.

"The new direction Sencha is taking by exposing their components natively to React apps is the most intriguing and compelling component option I've seen for the React community in a while," said Blaine Bradbury, lead developer, HC Productions. "The open source components available for React projects are great, but incomplete and unmaintained community libraries pose big business risks and hurdles. ExtReact is a perfect concept to overcome current business and coding challenges for React application developers."

ExtReact will be generally available in Q2 2017. For more information, visit
