Introduction to DevExtreme
DevExtreme is a component suite for creating highly responsive web applications for touch devices and traditional desktops. The suite includes 50+ UI components ready to use with jQuery, Angular, AngularJS, Knockout, ASP.NET MVC or ASP.NET Core: data grid, interactive charts, data editors, navigation and multi-purpose widgets designed to look and behave harmoniously in any browser.
Integration with 3rd-Party Libraries and Frameworks
DevExtreme supports integration with client-side technologies and server-side frameworks:
- jQuery versions 2.1 - 2.2 and 3.x
- Knockout versions 2.2.3 - 2.3.0 and 3.1.0 - 3.4.0
- AngularJS versions 1.2+ (when using version 1.3 or later, pay attention to the Migration Guide)
- Angular versions 2.4.2+, 4 and later
- ASP.NET: ASP.NET MVC 3 and later / ASP.NET Core 1.0.1 and later
You can integrate DevExtreme with other frameworks, or use DevExtreme widgets without jQuery and frameworks:
DevExtreme also supplies TypeScript definitions if you want to use TypeScript syntax.
- TypeScript Support versions 2.4.2+
Easily bind DevExtreme widgets to your data source no matter whether it is local or remote. Choose one of ready-to-use stores or implement your own data access logic.
Making sure that our UI widgets look native on any devices and in any browser, we provide a wide range of predefined themes. In case you need to create a new theme based on an existing DevExtreme or Bootstrap theme, the Theme Builder is at your service.
To make your application or website faster and lighter, we introduced a modular version of DevExtreme. Combining modules, you can create a custom bundle that includes only those code parts that you need.
Specify a custom format for any value type using the built-in formatting capabilities. DevExtreme supports the Intl and Globalize localization libraries for adapting messages and value formats to linguistic and regional differences.
Visual Studio Integration
For those who got used to Visual Studio, we introduced a number of project templates and helpful design-time features.
