Dojo done quick

Category: Articles, Dojo, JavaScript, Toolkit

Andy Smith has posted an article (if thats 404, try this) about getting up to speed with Dojo quickly. He takes a simple javascript example and walks through the steps of converting it to a Dojo widget. Dojo’s packaging system, event system, and widgets are covered. Note that he is using the latest Subversion checkout for the example, so no guarantees on how long all the details will be accurate with the speed at which Dojo is moving.

Also check his blog entry:

You’ve got a project that uses JavaScript in a mean sorta way, you’re boss told you that you need to be using “that AJAX stuff� and your mother’s cat just died; you better learn how to use Dojo (the superslick JavaScript library) and FAST.

Well, this sounded really cool, but it’s already 404. Hrm.

Jeremy: I updated the post, adding a second link that still works. Thanks for letting us know.

Sounds like a good article, but all links to it are 404 or timing out – including the repository. Do you have any links that work? thanks.

Martin: I’m guessing his repository is down, sorry. I’ll send Andy an email about it.

Now that it is years later Dojo is still around but I would prefer a much lighter utility library like jQuery or Mootools than a fancy GUI library.

yep this is a good article, but i think a fancy gui could do the job too.. or just stick with Jquery . i like that one.. but sometimes the fancy stuff adds options :D
