zimlets on 8.5 touch client?

Postby jerryboi » Fri Jun 13, 2014 4:00 am

I am one happy puppy to read that 8.5 beta (which I am just about to install) has a new client for touch devices. I understand it is experimental, only 3 tabs (mail, cal and contacts) are implemented (cal and contacts read only) and it is based on Sencha Touch open-source framework. The firstest question: is it possible to adapt our tab zimlets to this client?

> cal and contacts read only
A quick correction, contacts and calendar provide both read and update/create/delete capabilities.
Zimlets would not be compatible with the touch client since they are based on ajax client platform.

I kind of expected that, hence the wording 'adapt our zimlets'. THe real question is whether the touch client is also extendable like the ajax client and whether there is a 'sanchzets developer guide' in the pipeline.

The touch client is based on sencha touch framework which provides it own extension mechanism.
