Application development and deployment company Progress has come forward with new releases of the Progress Telerik and Progress Kendo UI tools.
New capabilities including ‘Fluent’ design and support for frameworks including React, Angular, Vue and Xamarin.
The firm insists that it is the first vendor to offer React UI components, built from the ground up… and the first to add Fluent-inspired themes to its component suites.
Progress Kendo UI is a UI library for data-rich web applications with an accompanying toolkit of functions.
Faris Sweis, senior VP and GM of developer tooling at Progress says that the Kendo UI library now includes, “Native support for React, giving developers the option to select the framework of their choice and move between them freely, all while relying on the robust UI components available in Kendo UI,” he said.
Written from the ground up for React architectures, Progress delivers pure, high-performance React UI components without any jQuery dependencies.
Kendo UI for Angular ehancements come in response to customer feedback – here we can see support for Angular with new components, including TreeView, Window, Splitter and Gauges.
“Kendo UI tightly integrates with Angular, empowering developers to build next-generation UIs that live up to any modern website design requirement, including native and responsive Angular web applications,” said Sweis.
Kendo UI for Vue adds four new Vue components: Pivot Grid, Gantt Chart, Progress Bar and Splitter, allowing Vue developers to carry over productivity benefits usually experienced when creating web UI with the Kendo UI library.
Other new features include new Fluent-Theme: A Fluent-inspired theme comes to Telerik control suites targeting WPF and WinForms. The new theme allows them to fit in the appearance of the Windows operating system.
“Telerik UI for Xamarin now enhances the design time experience previously unavailable for Xamarin.Forms developers. This feature allows .NET developers to drag and drop components on the screen quickly. In addition, the new release includes five new controls that enable fast development of Xamarin apps,” said Sweis.
In addition to support of Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SQL Azure Database and Oracle, MySQL Telerik Reporting and Telerik Report Server now enable easy access to more than 30 new data sources such as Salesforce, MongoDB and Amazon Redshift.
