Progress Embraces Latest Programming Frameworks, Including Angular 2, ASP.NET Core, Universal Windows Platform and Xamarin
Release of Telerik DevCraft R3 2016 brings new offerings and updates important to modern application development
Kendo UI for Angular 2—New UI Suite
Progress has worked closely with the Angular team at Google to be one of the first organizations to support the latest advancements in Angular. With today's release, the Telerik® Kendo UI® by Progress product now supports Angular 2 to easily produce beautiful responsive web apps. With the Kendo UI for Angular 2 suite (beta), developers will find most essential UI building blocks for native and responsive ng2 web applications, including a grid component, data visualization components, buttons and form elements.
Each component has been built natively for Angular 2 from the ground up, and is designed specifically for Angular 2, without any jQuery dependencies. Just like Angular 2, Kendo UI for Angular is written in TypeScript, distributed as NPM packages, and semantically versioned. This enables out-of-the-box, auto-completion in IDEs such as Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code and WebStorm.
"Angular 2 offers a lot of great new features, so I'm excited to hear
that Kendo UI is being re-written to target it," said
UI for ASP.NET Core—New UI Suite
With Kendo UI, Telerik® UI for ASP.NET MVC by Progress and Telerik® UI for ASP.
Progress continues to add support for Microsoft's newest frameworks by introducing the most complete UI suite for ASP.NET Core development shortly after the official ASP.NET Core 1.0 release announcement. With this release, early adopters of ASP.NET Core have access to the most advanced UI toolset on the market, with more than 60 quality widgets based on the Kendo UI for jQuery product, which allow them to build responsive web and cloud applications for any platform and browser. The new suite will be added to the Kendo UI Complete product and to all DevCraft bundles.
