ArcGIS JSAPI 4.0 Resources
There’s a really extensive blog post on the Esri blogs that you should go read for more information, it’s packed full of really good stuff.
I wanted to talk a little bit about some of the new resources out with this release.
First of all, if you didn’t notice, the documentation has been totally revamped. Check out the reference page to sample the new search capabilities. That search is fast.
Not only the reference, but the guide is extremely extensive. You can view the What’s New section to see how detailed it is. There is a Working with the API section that covers tons of material, even how to use Bower and PhoneGap.
You should really start digging around the samples page. There are a lot of samples with this release. I mean a lot. And the search on this page is just as fast as the rest of the documentation.
These aren’t just simple samples either. Check out some of the 3D Visualization samples or if you want to get deep with WebGL, you can extend 3D with it, now that’s serious.
You will get a lot of really great information out of perusing the samples and seeing what you can do with 4.0!
Now let’s diverge from the documentation a little bit.
One of the other additions people have been asking for with the ArcGIS JS API 4.0 betas has been TypeScript definition files, and that has landed with the release of 4.0.
If you are using TypeScript, I’m going to guess that you know how to use these. Here’s a simple gist using JSAPI 4.0 in TypeScript with React.
These are just some of the resources you can find for 4.0 documentation and github.
