Ext 1.0 for jQuery Approaches

Category: JavaScript, jQuery, Sencha, Yahoo!

Jack Slocum has an early preview release of Ext which shows the decoupling allowing either jQuery or YUI as a core library choice.

It is getting very close, and now they just need to nail down items such as getting animations working just right in the jQuery version. Both teams are working together to finish up, so we hope to see something soon.

There is a set of examples here which allow you to choose jQuery or YUI.


Please keep in mind, this is an alpha, the files are huge and there are still a few things to iron out. :)

AWESOME-O! Jack, you are an asset to the web dev community 8). Thank you for your contributions! You set the bar mighty high, and make others reach with more determination to pass it 8).

Sweet mother! That is great news. I am a jQuery user but found yui-ext recently and loved it except for the YUI dependencies.

Now you’ve really done the impossible. I had no idea you were working on a jQuery inclusion as well. Hats off to you sir.

“getting very close” – Why don’t you let Jack tell you when it’s getting close.

It’s currently an Alpha release, and the most recent (the second) version *just* added jQuery support – and that was just released this past weekend.

I know it’s an exciting development, but don’t jump the gun.

Jack rocks!!!!
One of the main reasons I don’t like YUI as the core is its size and the system i’m developing has already adopted jQuery as its main core lib.

I would be happy as long as Ext is committed to support both JQ and YUI and treats both as ‘first class citizens’. I would start to worry if Ext starts to lean more toward the JQ side.

Simon. What the size of YUI? Somewhere along the lines you got the wrong impression. Check out the post on page weight and you’ll see it does excellent.
