GeoExt 3 — JavaScript Toolkit for Rich Web Mapping Applications

GeoExt is Open Source and enables building desktop-like GIS applications through the web. It is a JavaScript framework that combines the GIS functionality of OpenLayers with the user interface of the ExtJS library provided by Sencha.

Version 3 of GeoExt is the successor to the GeoExt 2-series and is built atop the newest official installments of it's base libraries; OpenLayers 3.6 and ExtJS 6.0.0.beta.

Geoext 3 is not released yet, and we are actively developing it. Right now it is neither feature complete, nor fully tested. Everybody is invited to help us create the next version of GeoExt.

About GeoExt

Since version 3, GeoExt is based upon the newest beta of Ext JS 6.

This means GeoExt can be used just like any other Ext component, and applications making use of GeoExt also profit from Ext JS enhancements like charting, a harmonized API with Sencha Touch and a sophisticated single-file build tool.

GeoExt 3 is a very young project, a lot of the code and structural decisions come from a code sprint in Bonn. 9 developers gathered there from 2015-06-17 to 2015-06-19. We are deeply grateful that our sponsors helped to start GeoExt 3.

Now, have a look at the examples below, read the API documentation, the API documentation (including ExtJS classes) or checkout the code.
