Overall Satisfaction with Infragistics Ignite UI

We've used Infragistics products for over 15 years. It simply made sense to use Ignite UI as we first started developing more web-based applications, first for in-house use, then for clients. We found Ignite UI to provide a consistent and well-documented development tool with a resulting great UX/UI. For us, Ignite UI shortens the time from storyboarding to deliverable.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.
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.
