The Web Browser Desktop


I have wanted to try out ExtJS for a while now and finally got the time to have a go and create a browser based desktop simulated user interface. The ExtJS framwork provides this seamlessly and so much more!

Features I have added:

  • Desktop User Interface
  • Google Maps API Example
  • Grid Example
  • Tabs Example
  • Accordian Example
  • Border Layout Example

These options are all available as desktop items, simply double click to open them as you normally would.

Features I would like to add (when I get the time):

  • Custom Layout Manager
  • AJAX Call Tabs
  • Web Forms
  • Window Messages
  • Graphs & Grids
  • Custom Theme Support

How to build your own (to get you started)

1. Download Ext JS Open Source

Sorry there are no more detailed instructions – I will add some here when I get more time.
