Yahoo! User Interface Library: Yahoo! Open Sources Internal Library

Category: JavaScript, Library, Toolkit, UI, Yahoo!

Yahoo! has just publicly launched two new (previously internal) libraries as well as a companion blog. Since Yahoo! has a lot of fantastic dhtml developers, this looks really promising. Do you want Yahoo! Mail? :)

Bill Scott of Yahoo! told us about the news:

Yahoo! User Interface Library

Since early in 2005, Yahoo! has been developing its own Ajax/DHTML framework. Core requirements for this library included excellent browser compatibility, industrial strength scalability and good documentation. The library is now available on the Yahoo! Developer Network under the BSD license! Its got all of the things you would expect (drag and drop, animation, event management, widgets, etc.)

Yahoo! Design Pattern Library

Since 2004, Yahoo! has been collecting and cataloging interaction design patterns in our internal Yahoo! Design Pattern Library. We have presented about it at conferences and in articles. But now we have opened it up for the public. This first release is small (just 13 patterns) but we will be adding to it over the next few months to round out the offerings in there.

Notice we have rolled these two libraries out together. Today there is a small amount of synergy, but going forward we expect many of the design patterns to link directly to our code library for examples and help in implementing design solutions.

Yahoo! User Interface Blog

The User Interface Blog is where will be talking about user interface design and development with these two libraries.

Anyone could port it to Firefox? It would be great if i have a paging system like this. No more server-side coding.

I could not believe what my eyes were seen. I think this is one of the best news for the ajax development community as one of the top 1 internet companies releases their source code with examples and how to’s.

By the way i have tested the whole library under firefox 1.5 and Linux. It worked for me 100% properly.

Cheers Yahoo!
