Overall Satisfaction with Kendo UI

Speed of development is number one. Out of the box features and ease of implementation allow me to suggest functionality to clients that otherwise would not approve because of the time and money it would take to do a custom implementation. Most fancy/slick UI interactions or advanced data views on a grid, for example, Kendo offers straight out of the box.
  • Datagrids - viewing tabular data in pretty much anyway is easy.
  • Although sometimes hard to find, the documentation and support is key and very detailed.
  • Since they make a ton of different versions of the same control, a combobox for example. Made for a myriad of different different tech stacks/libraries, finding the documentation for the one you are using can be annoying.
  • Kendo pays for itself with one project.
We looked at Onsen UI, but it doesn't compare to Kendo.
Kendo is great for internal corporate applications that deal with lots of data. I probably wouldn't use it on a public facing application where data is not a huge part of the website.
