Technical details

    • Platform: Ext JS (our v2.x branch runs on Ext JS 4, v3.x runs on Ext JS 5, v4.x runs on Ext JS 6)
    • Built with Ext JS, but can used together with any other 3rd party JS libraries (such as Bootstrap, jQuery or Angular).
    • “Buffered rendering” can be used for large datasets
    • Easy to add custom data fields to any of the Model classes (Task, Dependency, Assignment, Resource etc)
    • Two build versions available, a readable development build with source code comments and a minified build for production use. You can also build your own custom version to minimize the footprint.
    • Comes with a flexible API where you can override pretty much any part of the codebase.

Server/Database Integration

    • Integrates with any server technology (PHP, Java, ASP.NET etc)
    • Load and save data in JSON or XML. Custom data formats can also be supported.
    • Either use the standard Proxy classes in Ext JS or use our custom CrudManager class (v3.0+).
    • Fully working implementations with PHP, Java or ASP.NET.

Visual Appearance

    • All elements can be styled easily using just plain CSS
    • Row height is customizable, and can be changed dynamically.
    • The HTML produced by the Gantt chart is powered by pluggable Ext JS XTemplate classes. Each timeline element (task, parent task, milestone) can be rendered with your own custom template
    • Tasks can be easily styled individually, either by putting CSS classes on the Model data, or by using the eventRenderer method.
    • Dependency lines and arrows can by styled individually. Example

    Calendars

      • Calendars can be assigned to the Project, and its Tasks and Resources (Example).
      • Weekends and non-working time can be easily visualized
