Web apps created with Webix have offline support, easily skinnable interface, cross domain data loading, and more.
One of the key Webix advantages is its capability to work on multiple platforms. The library includes not only necessary tools for building desktop web apps but also allows developers to use the same UI components to create usable mobile apps. The user interface of mobile apps developed with Webix is optimized for touch screens; all events are processed smoothly even on small screens.
Webix delivers an easy way to integrate the library with such a popular MVC framework as Backbone.js and, since v 1.2, with AngularJS. This integration enables developers to build powerful web apps taking all the bonuses of MVC frameworks, like using rich Webix components instead of manually coded custom solutions.
Apart from this, the library can be integrated with jQuery. It enables developers to add Webix UI components on a page as a jQuery plugin and be sure that it won’t conflict with the jQuery framework.
Other features that deserve mentioning include:
- coherent and easy-to-learn documentation;
- integration with Mercury, NicEdit, TinyMCE;
- integration with Google, Nokia, and Yandex maps;
- fast data loading, defining the widgets’ appearance fully with CSS and cross domain data loading.
