Responsive web UI toolkit, Kendo UI Builder, gets updated to version 2.0 to better bring better user engagement for their customers.

Progress has announced the latest version of Progress Kendo UI Builder, a responsive web UI toolkit for rapidly delivering beautiful and intuitive web experiences. The new release introduces browser compatibility with Electron Shell, an extended library of built-in templates, the ability to customize screens with Blank View and enhanced data connectivity.

“Today, the ultimate success of a business application depends on the availability of an engaging user experience. While reliability and scalability remain the backbone of superb performance, the look and feel of an application is vital for attracting and retaining users,” said John Ainsworth, SVP, Core Products, Progress. “With the latest version of Progress Kendo UI Builder toolkit, our partners and customers can quickly and cost-effectively enhance their Progress OpenEdge applications using an extended library of UI components and data connectivity to better optimize development efforts.”

Key new features:

- Browser compatibility with Electron: Progress Kendo UI Builder toolkit is now shipped with Electron, an open-source framework developed by GitHub.

- Data connectivity enhancements through JSDO, OData and REST: Feeding apps with data has become easier with the addition of OData and REST support.

- Additional charts, graphs and page view templates: Latest UI component additions include new view templates for Stacked Grids and Hierarchical Grid as well as 70+ HTML5 UIs and support for 12 built-in themes.

- On-demand download script execution: Generating complete Angular JS applications “out of the box” and automated module loading ensure quicker app startup.
