  • Using jQuery's Pipe() Method To Change Deferred Resolution

    Posted on Nov 1, 2011 at 11:20 AM

    Hi Mike, jQuery's AJAX methods actually return a jqXHR object, which includes promise (but not deferred) methods, therefore making it observable but not mutable. All sorts of weird stuff would happen if people were able to resolve/reject their jqXHR objects o_O - Eric... read more »

  • Using jQuery's Pipe() Method To Change Deferred Resolution

    Posted on Sep 9, 2011 at 6:07 PM

    Hey Ben, The only time I've used pipe() is to transform a JSON response while caching the promise at the same time. In this particular use case, I had an array of blog posts coming back from a 3rd party server and wanted to add a "summary" property to each blog post. The summary ... read more »

  • Using Deferred Objects As An Asynchronous Script Loader In jQuery 1.5

    Posted on Feb 12, 2011 at 2:58 PM

    Hey Ben, I noticed it's possible to return a promise with the $.Deferred(fn) signature simply by chaining a .promise() call after creating a deferred. I think this was just an oversight by Julian when he posted that example on my blog. Applying this to your example, you could ins... read more »

  • Experimenting With Multiple Class Inheritance In Javascript

  • Experimenting With Multiple Class Inheritance In Javascript

    Posted on Oct 22, 2010 at 10:38 AM

    Ben, Yep, I got it. After playing around for a bit it looks like the Person and Monkey classes are being instantiated - that is, populated with values - but are not (and need not be) initialized, because the scope of them is augmented to the current instance of Person. My knowledge is now +1!... read more »

  • Experimenting With Multiple Class Inheritance In Javascript

    Posted on Oct 22, 2010 at 10:07 AM

    Hey Ben, I'm experimenting with your code trying to wrap my head around the concepts. It's working great, but I don't understand how, in the Ben "class", you're calling the Person and Monkey constructors without creating new instances of them. Assume a scenario where the Ben object take... read more »

  • Your jQuery Selector Context Can Be A jQuery Object

    Posted on Mar 15, 2010 at 3:24 PM

    My feeling is that using a jQuery object as the context argument only hinders readability, and the performance will be slightly worse (however negligible) because of that extra internal conversion. I sometimes see $("expr", cachedjQueryObject) being interpreted as $("expr").andSelf(), rather than $... read more »

  • Using jQuery With Custom XHTML Attributes And Namespaces To Store Data

    Posted on Jan 9, 2009 at 11:44 AM

    Yeah, that's an issue with my JSON approach. I'm not very familiar with security issues around JavaScript or best practices, but to convert JSON to an object I use eval(), and I've always been taught evaluating in any language is a huge no-no and presents a security risk.... read more »

  • Using jQuery With Custom XHTML Attributes And Namespaces To Store Data

    Posted on Jan 9, 2009 at 10:31 AM

    I've found what works best for me is to store any custom variables in the name attribute in JSON format. I don't know if this is a good way to do it, but it's pretty darn customizable, scalable, and consistent. for example, I use the dialog UI fairly liberally in most apps I make. So i'll bind th... read more »

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
