Ignite UI

Angular is our framework of choice for a number of reasons. Business data is almost always displayed in a grid format. It makes sense to start with a strong widget that is powerful and fast when building applications. Ignite UI provides a complete toolset of widgets for other frameworks, but Angular is our focus. Ignite UI is helping us deliver a great UX/UI.

When there is the need to rapidly show data and/or build a nice UI without having to build your own stuff. Let's say one needs to have a complete dashboard about some business streams or other KPI intensive system. Designing and implementing everything from scratch will take a huge amount of time. And a steep learning curve. Dashboard platform will help cut down those two timelines.

Pros

Ignite UI

  • The examples are great and close enough to real-life usage to be truly helpful
  • The OOB configuration and themes are good. They are very configurable.
  • The touch support and response web are built in, allowing the same code to work well on desktop and phone.

  • Great support platform

Cons

Ignite UI

  • I would like to see examples with security tokens. It really isn't an Ignite UI issue, but would be helpful.
  • Some of the examples are over-simplified, not how the products would be used in real life.

  • The documentation. It lacks detail and real-world examples.
  • The theme support. It really could use some improvement in the easiness of customization
  • As always, there's room for improvement. Maybe allowing for a better experience in terms of mix and match data points on the graphs

Alternatives Considered

Ignite UI

We tried DevExpress when we started a project a couple of years ago. At the time, the documentation and ease of use went to Infragistics. When trying new or updated tools, the documentation and samples are everything. Having minimal documentation or documentation that seems to be written for people that already know how to use the product is just plain frustrating. Samples need to be something close to the real-life usage of the product.

Return on Investment

Ignite UI

  • There is a learning curve, of course, but the comparisons between the projects with and without Ignite UI are worth it.
  • The time savings on development is very real. The built-in functionality is amazing.
  • We are able to focus on features rather than getting the look and feel of our deliverable.
