Unobtrusive Javascript for Rails (UJS) 0.3 Released

Category: Rails, Ruby, Toolkit, Unobtrusive JS

UJS exampleLuke Redpath and Dan Webb have released version 0.3 of their plugin for Rails to allow unobtrusive javascript. UJS now has its own dedicated website with docs and Trac. Discussion of this plugin on the official Rails blog shows there is interest in this plugin from members of Rails core, but it will most likely remain a plugin until it has seen widespread adoption. So if you are using Rails, give this thing a try.

Major features of this release include:

  • Added out-of-the box caching using HTTP ETags and advanced behaviour caching
  • Added new apply_behaviours functionality for applying multiple behaviours at once.
  • Added a series of behaviour helpers to make applying Scriptaculous effects unobtrusively easy.

NOTE: Dan Webb will be speaking at The Ajax Experience in Boston, October 23rd-25th
