Sizzlin’ YUI

Category: CSS, Yahoo!

Eric Ferraiuolo has picked up on the work that Matt Sweeney has done integrating Sizzle with YUI3:

Great news for YUI3: Matt Sweeney, a YUI Developer, has integrated the Sizzle JavaScript Selector Library in a branch of the YUI3 code-base on GitHub. There has been interest from the community about this integration for quite some time. I personally was hoping for Sizzle adoption into YUI3; this now appears to be the case.

Using the Selector utility in YUI2 I would find myself hitting bugs and roadblocks where my expectations weren’t matching the outcomes. I’ve felt since first using the selector engine in YUI that it didn’t compare in speed, robustness, or completeness to jQuery’s. With the Sizzle project, there’s a narrow focus and distinct vision: To make the best damn selector engine. Since a selector engine is an essential component to any modern JavaScript library, why not make one really good one for all libraries to use? That’s the route the Sizzle project has taken.

Once Sweeney’s branch is merged into the YUI3 Master Head, I’ll be doing a git pull and give it some exercise.
