BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced the latest release of Telerik®
DevCraft™ by Progress suite, the most complete UI toolbox for web,
mobile and desktop development. The capabilities in the new release
support the latest advancements in application development, including
Angular 2, ASPNET Core 1.0 and Universal Windows Platform.
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.

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 Dan Wahlin,
Founder, Wahlin Consulting. "By taking advantage of advances in
process of integrating Kendo UI components into Angular 2 apps will be a
snap for developers."
