Overall Satisfaction with Kendo UI

We use the Kendo UI components for data visualization in our company's web products. The grid and chart components are easy to get set up but offer many customization points.
  • The documentation for the various components is comprehensive and offers examples of usage.
  • The styling of the components looks good out of the box.
  • Custom styling to change the default look of components can be tricky. It often involves writing CSS using the class hierarchy applied to the generated HTML which sometimes changes after upgrades.
  • The React components lag behind the regular jQuery components making it hard to completely switch to the React components.
  • By using the Kendo UI components (particularly data visualization) we were able to avoid implementing them in-house. This allows us to focus on delivering the actual business value from our product while still displaying the data in an attractive and usable format.
The data visualization components are particularly useful. The grid component supports things like frozen headers and column sorting out of the box which can be time-consuming to implement otherwise. Similarly, the various charts are ready to go without the need to add an additional library.
