Professional Tools for HTML5 Developers Now Available from Kendo UI

Telerik, a developer of tools and solutions recently announced the launch of Kendo UI which targets professional software developers, providing them with everything they need for front-end development with JavaScript and HTML5.

In a release, Todd Anglin, EVP, Kendo UI said that "Building applications and sites today with HTML5 and JavaScript is an exercise in self-assembling an array of libraries and toolsets to compose a platform that has all of the necessary components for development. This approach is acceptable for hobby projects, but it is fraught with support and licensing risks, it is difficult to maintain and upgrade, it is difficult to learn, and it wastes valuable development time. Kendo UI solves this problem by providing a unified framework with all of the necessary components for building HTML5 and JavaScript apps and sites."

The Kendo UI has currently been launched with three unique packages. They are the Kendo UI Web which has over a dozen rich HTML5 JavaScript UI widgets, including a Grid, plus essential framework components like a powerful Data Source (News - Alert), touch-enabled drag-and-drop, and one of the fastest JavaScript templating engines available; The Kendo UI DataViz which comes with a dedicated suite of HTML5-powered data visualization widgets, including animated charts and the Kendo UI Mobile CTP which is an early preview of Kendo UI widgets built specifically for solving the problems of building mobile apps with HTML5.

Svetozar Georgiev, CEO, Telerik said that "Developers today, faced with an increasingly fragmented computing landscape, are turning to HTML5 and JavaScript to build software that can run anywhere and reach the largest possible audience. Kendo UI simplifies the adoption of this rapidly evolving platform, helping developers quickly embrace the future with less risk. It also serves as an opportunity for Telerik to move beyond its .NET (News - Alert) roots and apply our knowledge and expertise to providing tools for the broader world of HTML5 and JavaScript developers."
