Using Sencha Cmd

Sencha Cmd is a command-line utility designed to work together and in conjunction with Sencha Touch that provides the following time-saving features:

Command Description
sencha generate app Generates a sample app using the MVC scaffolding
sencha app build Builds the production web version of the app

  1. Open a command prompt
  2. Change directories to the root of your Sencha Cmd-based app
  3. Type the following command:
