Question: How do you want
   to write JavaScript?

Transcript of "JavaScript Libraries (@Media)"

  1. 1. JavaScript Libraries John Resig - May 2008 http://ejohn.org/ http://twitter.com/jeresig/
  2. 2. Question: How do you want to write JavaScript?
  3. 3. 1) Plug-and-Play • Drop in a “calendar widget” or “tabbed navigation” • Little, to no, JavaScript experience required. • Just customize some options and go. • No flexibility.
  4. 4. 2) Some Assembly Required • Write common utilities • Click a link, load a page via Ajax • Build a dynamic menu • Creating interactive forms • Use pre-made code to distance yourself from browser bugs. • Flexible, until you hit a browser bug.
  5. 5. 3) Down-and-Dirty • Write all JavaScript code from scratch • Deal, directly, with browser bugs • Quirksmode is your lifeline • Excessively flexible, to the point of hinderance.
  6. 6. What we’ve just seen... • Widgets • Libraries • Raw JavaScript
  7. 7. What we’ve just seen... • Widgets • Libraries • Raw JavaScript
  8. 8. Why use a library? • Makes JavaScript bearable • Gets the job done fast • Simplifies cross-browser support • Sort of like C stdlib - no one just codes all of C by hand
  9. 9. What kind of libraries exist? Open Source Commercial Atlas Client/ AjaxCFC Backbase for Server Qcodo Struts Prototype Browser jQuery Backbase Only Yahoo UI SmartClient Dojo

  16. 16. Others • Only so much time in a day! • MooTools • ExtJS • Ajax.NET
  17. 17. The Libraries
  18. 18. Prototype
  19. 19. Prototype: Overview • Started early 2005 by Sam Stephenson • Incredibly popular, tied with Ruby on Rails’ popularity • Development backed by 37 Signals
  20. 20. Prototype: Focus • Improving the usability of the JavaScript language • Big emphasis on adding in ‘missing’ JavaScript features • Clean structure, clean objects and ‘classes’
  21. 21. Prototype: Details • Code quality is fantastic, great features • All animations (and interactions) are in Scriptaculous • Updated frequently • Looking at Prototype 1.6.0.2
  22. 22. jQuery
  23. 23. jQuery: Overview • Released January 2006 by John Resig • Rapid rise in popularity • Many developers across the globe
  24. 24. jQuery: Focus • Improving the interaction between JavaScript and HTML • Finding elements then performing actions • Highly-effective, short, code
  25. 25. jQuery: Details • Core features are limited to DOM, Events, Effects, Ajax • Other features can be added in via plugins • Looking at jQuery 1.2.6
  26. 26. Yahoo! UI
  27. 27. YUI: Overview • Released Feb 2006 by Yahoo! • Maintained and financed internally • Attempt to standardize internal JavaScript • Say ‘hi’ to Nate Koechley!
  28. 28. YUI: Focus • Exposing, and solving, common methodologies • Looking for common idioms (Drag-and- Drop, Calendar, Auto-Complete) • Looking at Yahoo UI 2.5.1
  29. 29. Dojo
  30. 30. Dojo: Overview • Started early 2005 by Alex Russell + Co. • Large development community • Lots of corporate backing (IBM, AOL) • Big code base, tons of features
  31. 31. Dojo: Focus • Building complete web applications • A package heirarchy, e.g.: dojo.addClass( ... ) • Focus has transcended into widgets (Dijit) • Huge number of features • Today we’re looking at Dojo 1.1.1
  32. 32. What should a library have?
  33. 33. Code Base • Core Functionality • DOM • Events • Ajax • Animations • User Interface Widgets
  34. 34. Development • Good Architecture • Open Licensing • Wide Browser Support • Small File Size
  35. 35. Project • Development Team (Open, Funded) • Code in SVN / Bug Tracker • Good Unit Test Coverage
  36. 36. Documentation • Full API Coverage • Plenty of Tutorials • Some Books • Wide variety of Demos
  37. 37. Community • Active Mailing List / Forum • Support and Training • Popularity
  38. 38. Most Important Question: • Does the JavaScript library help me to write JavaScript. • The style of the library and its API is very core to this. • Can really only be determined through sitting down and playing with a library.
  39. 39. Code Base • Core Functionality • DOM • Events • Ajax • Animations • User Interface Widgets
  40. 40. Core Functionality • Bare minimum needed to make a dynamic “Ajax” web site: • DOM (Traversal and Manipulation) • Events • Ajax • Animations
  41. 41. DOM • Traversal • Using CSS selectors to locate elements • Modification • Create/remove/modify elements • Having a DOM builder is important
  42. 42. DOM Traversal • Prototype: $$(“table > tr”) • jQuery: $(“div > p:nth-child(odd)”) • Dojo: dojo.query(“table tr:nth-child(even)”) • Yahoo UI: YAHOO.util.Selector.query('div p')
  43. 43. DOM Modification • Prototype: Insertion.Bottom(“list”,”<li>Another item</li>”); • jQuery: $(“#li”).append(“<li>An item</li>”); • Dojo and Yahoo UI have weak support - no DOM building capabilities, basic property modification
  44. 44. Events • Support for simple event binding/removal • Support for custom events is essential • Prototype: Event.observe(“button”,”click”, function(){ alert(“Thanks for the click!”); }); • jQuery: $(“div”).click(function(){ alert(“div clicked”); });
  45. 45. Events (cont.) • Yahoo UI: YAHOO.util.Event.addEventListener(“list”, “click”, function(){ alert(“List Clicked”); }); • Dojo: dojo.connect(dojo.byId(quot;mylinkquot;), quot;clickquot;, function(){ alert(“Link clicked”); });
  46. 46. Custom Events • $(“#list”).bind(“drag”, function(){ $(this).addClass(“dragged”); }); • $(“#test”).trigger(“drag”);
  47. 47. Ajax • Request and load remote documents • Prototype: new Ajax.Request(“test.html”, { method: “GET”, onComplete: function(res){ $(‘results’).innerHTML = res.responseText; } }); • jQuery: $(“#results”).load(“test.html”);
  48. 48. Ajax (cont.) • Yahoo UI YAHOO.util.Connect.asyncRequest( 'GET', “test.html”, function(data){ YAHOO.util.Dom.id(“results”).innerHTML = data; } ); • Dojo dojo.io.bind({ url: quot;test.htmlquot;, method: quot;getquot;, mimetype: quot;text/htmlquot;, load: function(type, data) { dojo.byId(“results”).innerHTML = data; } });
  49. 49. Ajax (cont.) • jQuery is only one capable of doing DOM traversing over XML • jQuery.get(“test.xml”, function(xml){ $(“user”, xml).each(function(){ $(“<li/>”).text( $(this).text() ) .appendTo(“#userlist”); }); });
  50. 50. Animations • Simple animations (hide/show/toggle) • Provide elegant transitions • No animations in Prototype Core (see Scriptaculous, instead) • jQuery: $(“#menu”).slideDown(“slow”);
  51. 51. Animations (cont.) • Yahoo UI: new YAHOO.util.Anim(“list”, { width: { from: 10, to: 100 } }, 1, YAHOO.util.Easing.easeOut ); • Dojo: dojo.fadeOut({ node: dojo.byId(“list”), duration: 500 });
  52. 52. Core Feature Summary DOM Events Anim. Ajax Prototype X X - X jQuery X X X X Yahoo UI / X X X Dojo / X X X
  53. 53. User Interface Widgets • Difficult to implement components, made easy • Commonly used, save duplication • Some common components: Drag & Drop, Tree, Grid, Modal Dialog, Tabbed Pane, Menu / Toolbar, Datepicker, Slider

  69. 69. Browser Support • Everyone supports: IE 6+, Firefox 2+, Safari 2+, Opera 9+ • Note: • Most are in the process of dropping support for Safari 2
  70. 70. File Size • Serving your JavaScript minified + Gzipped • Optimal level of compression and speed • Core file size (in KB): 35.00 26.25 17.50 8.75 0 Prototype jQuery Yahoo UI Dojo

  87. 87. Can common components be made? • Possibly. • Again hit the problem of finding the correct mix of features and bugs. • Component would have to be very special.
  88. 88. Why not make a unified API? • A library’s API helps makes it unique • Embody different philosophies • Combing all of them and trying to please everyone creates a unified, boring, mess
  89. 89. More Information ... questions? • Prototype: http://prototypejs.org/ • jQuery: http://jquery.com/ • Yahoo UI: http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/ • Dojo: http://dojotoolkit.org/
