Dojo gets new widgets: Tree and FishEye

Category: Component, Dojo

First, we hear about Tacos building Dojo-based widgets, and now we hear more.

Widgets are getting donated left right and center to the Dojo project.

Fish Eye Widget

Cal Henderson of Yahoo/Flickr gave up a fish eye list widget

dojo fisheye

Tree Widget

The open source Java web framework WebWork just donated a nice tree widget.


There will be more widgets coming from the WebWork team.

The text link to the Tree Widget might be calling for your attention?

This is old news…it’s been around for almost 2 weeks now…GET WITH THE TIMES!!!

The “fish eye list widget” froze my firefox a minute or so. That’s pretty bad. I haven’t checked out Dojo. But this example just puts me off.

What OS?

It’s also worth noting that the linked-to demo isn’t from a build, so it’ll be a lot slower than a deployment version.

It should also be noted that some of the FF beta builds have been having issues on linux lately. I can’t imageine they won’t be fixed by the time ff is out of beta..

Hi Alex Russell,
I’m using firefox 1.0.7 on windows xp sp2.
Just tested on the newly release Flock which is built on firefox, it also freezes. Maybe it’s just my computer, I don’t know..

I would like to have that fisheye widget without dojo. does anyone know about some standalone version of this?

Are there instructions anywhere for actually using this widget. Does version Dojo 0.1 have all the needed files. If not what else do I need to download.

I got it working using the lastest nightly build. Now I have to try to integrate into my site. Here is the priliminary page:

But where can I find the Tree-widget? I couldn´t find it neither in the webwork-dojo-sources nor in the dojo-cvs.
