Webix 2.3: New UI Widgets, Typescript and Material Skin

Spring is a time of great changes and endless possibilities! This spring a new Webix version 2.3 has also brought plenty of useful updates and new features.

Webix team has been working hard on adding advanced features and responding to all the great feedback from the Webix Community. Version 2.3 comes with entirely new components such as Organogram and Barcode along with a fresh material skin, TypeScript support and other cool enhancements.

Material Design

Everybody talks about material design. First of all, people discuss it as it was developed by Google. Secondly, it looks really nice and simplifies end users’ work with apps. So Webix is also on-trend and now it can boast of its new attractive Material skin.

The interface of this skin is clean, clear and responsive, the colors for highlighting controls are bright. No excessive elements. Thus, end users will be entirely concentrated on the key issues of your app.

Webix Material Skin

Since version 2.3 it is possible to apply the Material skin to your web app built with Webix. This skin won’t be included in a library package but can be taken from a separate repository at github.com.

Use Webix CDN for Building Fast Web Apps

Good news! From today to start using Webix library you don’t need to download the package from our website and then unpack it. You may include 2 webix files from the Internet by just setting links to CDN.

CDN can offer a performance and availability benefit by hosting Webix on servers all over the world. The advantage is that if the visitor to your webpage has already downloaded a copy of Webix from the same CDN, it won’t have to be re-downloaded.

Webix uses CDN

Now if the end user works, for example, with several apps that are built on the basis of Webix, the loading speed of the second app will be much faster than it was before using CDN. When your user works with the first app the webix.js and webix.css files are downloaded into cache and stored there. Thus, when a user checks the second app, the browser won’t need to re-download Webix files as they are already in the cache.
