On the GeoExt website their tutorial page has some instructions on how to setup up a application to use GeoEXT. This is the page I am referring to.

It mentions that you should download GeoEXT 1.0 and ExtJS 3.2. I have since noticed that Sencha has released ExtJS 4. Can ExtJS 4 be used along side GeoEXT 1.0 without any issues? Or should I go by the book and install ExtJS 3.2?

Thanks Ando

  • It appears that it is not so seamless. The directory structure and files of ExtJS 4.0 is quite different to that of ExtJS 3.2.

    Nope. Honestly, you can just go the pure jQuery/jQueryUI route Commented Jan 15, 2012 at 1:18

This was recently asked on the GeoExt mailing list - http://www.geoext.org/pipermail/dev/2011-May/001008.html

In a word - no, and there are as yet no ongoing development plans to do so, but it will be done eventually.


I create new project in github to translate GeoExt 1.1 to Extjs 4 https://github.com/vahid-sohrabloo/GeoExt4

  • So vahid writes code to address this issue months later, open sources it and then and he gets downvoted for the short sentence? upvoting. Commented Jan 16, 2012 at 8:55
