Google Continues to Support Telerik Kendo UI as HTML5 Framework

HTML5 is increasingly becoming the platform of choice as mobile technology overtakes PCs. The announcement of the 79-percent decline from Dell last week only points to the inevitable: the desktop is on its way out as a personal computing device. Google (News Alert) and other major players are supporting HTML5 and companies that are providing development applications using this platform. Google is partnering with Telerik and its Kendo UI HTML5 framework for the Chrome OS and some of its apps.

After 200,000 downloads in more than 200 countries, the Kendo UI has been used as the framework for building HTML5 and JavaScript apps and websites with a high rate of success. The collaboration with Google is to implement the Camera App that will be part of the Chrome OS, which will have an application with a full-featured photo booth style.

The Kendo UI gives developers the tools they need to create sites and applications with development framework that is rich in UI widgets and server wrappers programmability. This allows themes that can be customized to fit widgets on web applications, templates and more.

Unlike other frameworks, it offers:

  • Experience and expertise that benefits enterprise and large-scale deployments
  • It is supported by a first-class organization with superior service, as opposed to open source format with limited resources for large deployments
  • The UI is based on jQuery, a popular JavaScript framework

The high-performance Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) framework, which is part of the Kendo UI, allows developers to manage complex HTML and JavaScript UI with declarative bindings and two-way syncing between applications views and models. By keeping the view and the model in synch, the libraries of choice can be used with supported binding options out-of-the-box. Developers can test their applications with Telerik Test Studio, which has a built-in translator for the Kendo UI Web widgets. The available test translators include: Kendo UI Calendar, Grid, Menu, Treeview, Panelbar, Tabstrip, Menu, Listview and more.

"We believe very strongly that developers should have a choice in how they create and develop tomorrow’s latest and greatest technologies. Application development is not a zero-sum game, HTML5 is a viable and valuable option to those who want to take a write once and deploy many strategies. We, along with Google, recognize this and will work together to deliver all the tools necessary for developer success,” said Todd Anglin, EVP of Cross-Platform Tools & Services at Telerik.

The popularity of the framework has increased by 300 percent in sales in the first Q1 of 2013 compared to 2012. As HTML5 keeps growing and mobile technology becomes the preferred method of computing, more developers will look towards reliable frameworks that give them innovation and usability in a package that is backed by professional support.
