Watch this brief overview and read the details below.
Webix Jet is a micro framework for single-page applications created with Webix UI components. It allows you to divide app code into modules as well as combine and reuse diverse UI components. The framework provides a solution for device-responsive apps and can be used on both Desktop and mobile touch devices that run iOS, Android, etc.
With Webix Jet, you can easily create and develop perfect applications with loosely-coupled code. Sounds intriguing? Let’s look closer at what’s new in Webix Jet 1.0 and recap the useful features that migrated from the previous version.
New Webix 5.0 includes the GeoChart widget created with Google Maps API. GeoChart is a pretty neat service for creating map charts for presenting data associated with countries and regions. I’ll show you how to use the main features of the widget to create an interactive world map. If you are not yet familiar with the widget, I hope that GeoChart will become your faithful friend after I introduce it to you. If you already love GeoChart as much as I do, you will probably gain a better insight into things you can do with it.
My objective was to design and implement a simple application allowing me to manage my freelance business. The application is called iFact and is available on github. The basic activity consists in getting contracts with clients, performing the work or service and invoicing the client. Also, I needed to manage the invoice flow and to have a minimal dashboard for cash flow control. The volume of invoices is low: from one to a couple of invoices per month. The number of clients and contracts per client is low, it means 5 to 10 clients with 1-3 contracts per client, normally one single contract active at any given moment in time.
Webix team is proud to introduce the newly released Webix 5.0. It includes the updated Webix Jet framework, three new widgets and some useful feature upgrades, such as export of widget styles to Excel. Enjoy!
