Progress Kendo UI

Kendo UI works well if developing web UI applications which have simple layout designs. - GoodA scenario where there are a lot of Kendo widgets on a single UI page, and each has a complex initialization. - Not so good

Node.js

If you need a fast, robust and reliable server side framework that allows you to write JS on the backend and therefore have your project in one language - Node.js is a stand out choice. It can easily handle heavy traffic on very little resources (CPU and memory usage is very efficient). I can't recommend it enough, it is such a pleasure to work with - I feel it gave me back my career. I was so bored with the banality of .NET, I had also come to dislike it's overly convoluted and complicated class structure. Node.js was the fresh start I needed, it can be as simple or as complicated as you like - but even at it's most complicated it can still beat the pants off .NET core any day.

Cons

Progress Kendo UI

  • Kendo UI is always moving forward and staying current with latest development trends. While that is beneficial, that can cause some issues when supporting customers (particularly government) that don't move their IT infrastructure along nearly as fast. A prime example is web font icons. Great and easy to use, but where Kendo UI utilizes web font icons as the sole means of displaying an icon, not all organizations (again, especially government) allow the use of these. There have been times where Kendo UI became unusable and we had to downgrade to a version a few years old. Makes continued payment for licenses sometimes feel wasted as we may not be able to always use the new releases
  • Kendo UI has a wonderful feedback system and they do indeed listen to the community. However, there do seem to be some instances where there is large support for a new feature/component and it never gets addressed. It is easy to understand that not all ideas are easy or even prudent to implement, but would be nice to see a better follow-up on ideas with a current status
  • Refreshing Kendo UI grids is simple, yet the standard API method causes the grid to return to the default state. We have many use cases where we would love to update the grid data but need current grid state (such as expanded detail rows, sorts, filters, etc) preserved after the grid is updated so that users do not have to perform grid actions again to return to the desired state.

Nothing better has come along. I'm always on the lookout for new UI libraries and I have tried most of them. Kendo has done a good job of keeping my business. They aren't perfect, but no one has done it better as far as I can tell. I'll keep a look out and my rating may change in the future if they get complacent.

I'm giving it a rating of 9 because there is a learning curve when you first start working with Kendo UI. But Telerik has a great online documentation including working examples that will help you get up and running quickly with Kendo UI.

The errors that we have detected were not of great importance and the online support provided a temporary solution until the next release.

Node.js is easy and good to use, their support team is also good they always tend to help you, and solve your problem,even we know that Node is free to use and opensource but then also we get support from them but for getting much better results we need to purchase standard or enterprises support provided by them.

Alternatives Considered

Progress Kendo UI

At the time of our product selection we identified better cross-browser compatibility and we estimated that turnaround for support was superior. At the time, the vendor had a higher positive feedback footprint among their user community.

Other alternatives would be Python or Ruby, both of which are inferior in terms of performance, usability, scalability, and error handling.

Return on Investment

Progress Kendo UI

  • Kendo UI has saved us a ton of time in development.
  • We were able to get certain things to market faster due to the fact that we didn't have to piece multiple libraries together like is so common with modern web development.
  • Because of the price of the library, however, we have not been able to purchase upgrades every year.
Joshua Weaver | TrustRadius Reviewer

Node.js

  • Node.js allows us to get more systems up and running quicker
  • Zero cost
  • Robustness
