Dojo: The Definitive Guide

Dojo: The Definitive Guide pdf

Book Description

Of all the Ajax-specific frameworks that have popped up in recent years, one stands out as the industrial-strength solution. The Dojo is not just another JavaScript toolkit—it’s the JavaScript toolkit—and Dojo: The Definitive Guide demonstrates how to tame Dojo’s extensive library of utilities to build rich and responsive web applications like never before. Dojo founder Alex Russell gives a foreword that explains the “why” of Dojo and this book. Dojo provides an end-to-end browser development solution, including everything from the core JavaScript library and turnkey widgets to building tools and a testing framework. Its vibrant open-source community keeps adding to Dojo’s arsenal, and this book provides an ideal companion to Dojo’s official documentation. Dojo: The Definitive Guide gives you the most thorough overview of this toolkit available, showing you everything from how to create complex layouts and form controls closely resembling those found in the most advanced desktop applications with stock widgets, to advanced JavaScript idioms, to AJAX and advanced communication transports. With this definitive reference, you get:

  • Get a concise introduction to Dojo that’s good for all 1. x versions.
  • Well-explained examples with scores of tested code samples let you see Dojo in action.
  • A comprehensive reference to Dojo’s standard JavaScript library (including essential utilities in Base, Dojo’s tiny but powerful kernel) that you’ll wonder how you ever lived without.
  • An extensive look at additional core features, such as animations, drag-and-drop, back-button handling, and animations like wipe and slide.
  • Extensive coverage of pre-installed Dijits (Dojo widgets) as well as a definitive range of how to create your own, either from scratch or by extending existing ones.
  • An itemized inventory of DojoX subprojects, the build tools, and the DOH, Dojo’s unit-testing framework, that you can use with Dojo—or anywhere else.

If you’re a DHTML-toting web developer, you need to read this book—whether you’re a one-person operation or part of an organization employing scores of developers. Dojo packs the standard JavaScript library you’ve always wanted, and Dojo: The Definitive Guide helps you quickly transform your ideas into working applications by leveraging design concepts you already know.
