  • Real World Dojo part Three: AJAX

    When we finished up last time, we had an AJAX-ified form that uploads an image file . The problem now is that the "metadata" (the name and URL) are being completely ignored. It's ugly, but try adding them as GET variables to the upload path: It seems like I should just be able to update...

  • Real World Dojo part Two: File Upload

    In my last post, I wrote about my research into doing client-side validation with Dojo (disclaimer, in case you haven't seen this a billion times before: this can never be trusted server-side...this is only a convenience for the client, not a security thing). There's a long story in that post...

  • Real World Dojo part One: Form Validation

    Real World Dojo, part One (Basic Validation) The Scenario: I’ve kind of been nibbling around the edges of Dojo for a while, but I’m at a place in this project where I really need to buckle down and learn it. Since I’m having so much trouble finding real-life examples of the basics, I figured I’d share...

  • Manipulating the DOM with Dojo

    This is the area where jQuery rules the roost. Or so everything I've read tells me. So, how does Dojo stack up? Still running this in parallel with Kyle's series: Setting the contents of an element // Convenience function to hide query details var element = dojo.byId('whatever'); element...

  • Selectors in Dojo

    Selecting elements in dojo is really a very tiny piece of what it does. It uses CSS 3 selectors. If you haven't looked into them, check out CSS 3 selectors explained . It's a little disheartening, because IE still doesn't support most of these features (the IE 8 beta seems to have limited...

  • Net Neutrality

    Net Neutrality advocates tell us that, if ISPs are allowed to pick and choose what kind of bandwidth they throttle the most, they'll, of course, discriminate against their competitors. Being the giant, evil, corrupt corporations they are (this is Microsoft and Google talking, BTW), they can't...

  • Some Open Source Ajax Frameworks

    Introduction I've finally had a chance to look at AJAX again. Step one (for me) was to do some research into the different frameworks. The project this is for has nothing to do with .NET, so I still haven't had a chance to look at ASP.NET AJAX. (Well, nothing worth talking about. I helped a coworker...

  • Some Initial Thoughts on Google App Engine

    More like observations, really. There's nothing here that's new or interesting, if you've been following it at all. But, if you've been mildly curious and haven't taken the time to really read anything at all, this may be worth your time. I was really excited about the app engine...

  • First Impressions of Web2py

    It kicks ass. There's a video that demonstrates web2py and Google appengine that pretty much says it all. If you're like me, and you'd rather read a set of step-by-step instructions than watch a video, this is for you. (OK, this is actually for me when I start a new project 6 months down...

  • Initial Thoughts on Google App Engine

    If you haven't heard of Google App Engine by now, you've probably been living under a rock. I won't try to explain it, or even include any links. Go check out what google has to say about it: it's intriguing, at the very worst. It's really the first step toward the distributed web...
