I have been chained good or bad to Sitefinity since 2008. I imagine the same love hate relationship we are all in if we are here.
Radcontrols and now Kendo UI included with Sitefinity you know it does sound great and it is great marketing. To this day I have never seen anyone publicly display much use beyond a half a dozen active developers who generously post modules and widgets to the marketplace and often free thankfully which we all appreciate.
If you spend ten minutes on Telerik Ajax Radcontrols demo page you first notice the beautiful use of AJAX so every link you click isn't shooting you off to wait for another page to load. Second you wonder why these awesome widgets are not in the toolbox in Sitefinity. The third thing you get hit with is what a complete mess the copy this code system is which is accompanied by a long tutorial on how to convert the mess into a working example that only the desperate or insane would waste hours of their life to try and use which makes it pretty much worthless to the average Sitefinity user.
Beyond a small rant, my real question is
why isn't some of that already developed bliss not in the toolbox?
Same goes for the Kendo website which seems almost designed to talk you into moving on, simply beautiful. Same question why isn't some of that already developed bliss not in the toolbox?
Anyone willing to admit losing hours of their life trying to use one of those demos in a project?
