Bunkai: Dojo Interactive Workbench

Category: Dojo, Showcase

Peter Svensson is back in the online IDE business with a new interactive workbench called Bunkai.

Peter formerly created JDA Composer which he claimed “tried to do too many things at once, and so it was hard to understand at first glance.”

He setup apart things with a new goal:

My goal is to create a small, comprehensive editor which shows things from two mutually communicating perspectives; 1) the html/js code editor, 2) The ‘screen’ area where dojo widgets show up.

What this means is that you’ll be able to write something in the editor, click save, and it will be rendered immediately. But it also means that the rendered widgets will be editable (according to what properties the widgets (OK, dijjits :) have defined, moved about (if not restricted to a layout container) and resized (again, if allowed by layout). All changes in the visual side will immediately be communicated back to html source code in the editor.

That way, I hope it will be simpler to understand, and as a programmer you’ll feel that you’re in control, even though there is an element of visual composition
