  • Streamlined Object Modeling: Patterns, Rules, And Implementation

    Posted on Oct 14, 2013 at 1:59 PM

    Hey Ben, funny how some things seem to pop up together! I just returned from wordcamp RU, and one of the more interesting and tech talks there was on using OOP - with a huge recommendation on the "goose" book - http://www.amazon.com/Growing-Object-Oriented-Software-Addison-Wesley-Signatu... read more »

  • Writing A RequireJS Plugin To Load Remote jQuery Templates

    Posted on Nov 12, 2011 at 6:40 AM

    @Ben, As kong as your have sites / solutions that you might want to be snappy on mobile as well, chances are pretty good that one js file will be better. As long as you minify and gzip the actual dl size should counter the overhead of an extra network connection :) IMHO, main reason for having spl... read more »

  • Writing A RequireJS Plugin To Load Remote jQuery Templates

    Posted on Nov 11, 2011 at 10:57 AM

    ...make my day! Cool image, must be first time I've seen it :) Interesting post and experiment, especially the idea of "just" wrapping the existing module for your own special use case - thereby saving dev time and like you said network request. So, where do you go from here? Planning o... read more »

  • Appending An Array Of jQuery Objects To The DOM

    Posted on Oct 8, 2011 at 6:08 AM

    Interesting plugin, One question though - why use an array as a holder, rather than a jQ object? If you are going to be inserting one by one anyways, why not replace Buffer with an "off DOM" $(ul) ? then you could just replace or reposition it into the page context as needed? Or if you... read more »

  • Experimenting With A Stateful Class For Stateful User Interface (UI) Widgets

    Posted on Sep 12, 2011 at 10:28 AM

    @Ben, looking at it (backbone) a bit myself for the fun and learning (at least initially) nice blog post over here http://backbonefu.com/2011/08/front-end-developer-to-backbone-js-what-you-need-to-know/ on what the use case is (single page app w/o serious backend architecture), and links to spec... read more »

  • Experimenting With A Stateful Class For Stateful User Interface (UI) Widgets

    Posted on Aug 24, 2011 at 4:23 PM

    Interesting rework, Out of curiosity, how would youmcompare that model to something more generic like the dojo.stateful Http://www.site pen.com/blog/2010/05/04/consistent-interaction-with-stateful-objects-in-dojo Where you are listening to not events, but states - ie simple or complex values and... read more »

  • Experimenting With Node.js And Server-Side Javascript

    Posted on Apr 20, 2011 at 6:44 PM

    finally got around to trying the test for myself, had to make some minor changes to the code to get it running on node .46 (response.writeHead and .end rather than -close) can really see how this could be useful for small dedicated apps alongside existing server side solutions - not everything th... read more »

  • Overloading Javascript Functions Using A Sub-Function Approach

    Posted on Sep 11, 2010 at 6:21 PM

    Nice thoughts on the subject, A good use-case for overloading is when you are dealing with google maps, making a constructor for the market with assorted options (lat, lng, icon, text, function) Seem to recall reading a post by jresig on the array approach, along the lines of the http://ejohn.org/... read more »

    @Ben Nadel, yeah - just read about the Sencha Touch extension, and how it was aimed a bit more at tablets rather than smartphones (iPhones) http://www.sencha.com/blog/2010/06/17/introducing-sencha-touch-html5-framework-for-mobile/ (with j.stark taking over further fixing on jQ with a mobile foc... read more »

    Posted on Jun 23, 2010 at 8:19 AM

    Nice couple of experiments here, love the way you builld and think ypur way through a concept over time rather than just jump to "solutions" You can actually build it a lot further easily with the jqtouch extension, like the chapter at http://building-iphone-apps.labs.oreilly.com/ch04.html Also,... read more »
