Tripbase: Travel 2.0 Site

Category: Dojo, Showcase

Tripbase is a new single page application built using Dojo.

It gives you recommendations based on settings that you configure via sliders and text.

The various components are nicely wrapped as Dojo widgets. A view-source | grep dojo.require will show you goodies like:

javascript

  1. dojo.require("dojo.widget.Slider");
  2. dojo.require("dojo.triptoe.widget.GeneratorResultsHolder");
  3. dojo.require("dojo.triptoe.widget.GeneratorResult");
  4. dojo.require("dojo.triptoe.widget.IframeDialog");
  5. dojo.require("dojo.triptoe.widget.SlideShow2");        
  6. dojo.require("dojo.triptoe.tripbase");         
  7. dojo.require("dojo.widget.DropdownDatePicker");

The sliders do not work in Opera :-(

Comment by Martin — May 7, 2007

doesn’t work in firefox too. tsk tsk tsk…

Comment by Shaun — May 7, 2007

in my opinion, this can be done easily using YUI, with better results… AND it’ll work in firefox. AND opera.

Cool site, worked fine in firefox for me.

Anyone else get an “java.lang.OutOfMemoryError” error-page?

FF 2 and IE were fine. Nice idea.

FF2 work for me. I like the idea but it little slow for me.

I liked it. I was actually surprised when a little focus outline showed up around the slider, and it responded to my arrow keys. When I started tabbing around the application it turned out to be mostly keyboard accessible.

Using FF2, some keyboard access areas that could be improved:

– For some reason the filters under the plus signs on the left cannot be reached

– The modal type of dialog with the destination details does not restrict focus to itself… I can just tab out of it, and I can’t close it (Escape key perhaps, or a little close button?)

– The popups with extra information about “things to do” do not open when their link is focused

– For some reason responsiveness is sometimes very low

– There are some twilight zones where it is completely unclear what happened to the focus, it just seems to have disappeared

So nice but no price yet :) With a little more work all the current features could be made keyboard accessible, and it would be a nice showcase.

Nice service. I think there is a lot of useful things that are possible to implement using the sliders idea.

By the way, it works in my FF2

Nice javascript loader, that’s quite a very useful function!!
But i’ve seen a smiliar possibility to load and execute/insert javascript and css code dynamically. It was the TwoBirds Framework, here: http://ajaxian.com/archives/twobirds-lib-20-released

I’d like to recommend dohop.com as the best flight planner I’ve found. It specialises in finding the cheapest fare amongs lots of airlines.
