YUI 3 Cookbook -- First Look (Ch 12: Professional Tools)

Post Posted: Wed Mar 23, 2011 9:02 am
Hello! I'm Evan Goer, author of the newly started YUI 3 Cookbook, coming from O'Reilly in early 2012. I'll be posting a sample chapter shortly.

Relevant links:

1. Strawman TOC: https://gist.github.com/883593
2. Rough draft PDF of Ch 12: http://yuiblog.com/sandbox/openhours/OH ... 032011.pdf

The PDF is unedited & unreviewed, but it should give you an idea of where we're going. Let me know if you have any questions or feedback!

Also -- apologies for the giant pixellated images. :) That's a DocBook -> PDF build problem.

So Cool ! So Abundant ! I like the book !
Maybe you explain the goals, the infrastructure, the performance of YUI 3 itself.

Hi Kaven -- great to hear! The introduction of the book will talk about the overall goals of YUI 3. And each chapter will explore the thinking behind various pieces of YUI 3's infrastructure. For example, the initial "Loading" chapter will explain why YUI.use() works the way it does, what problems it's trying to solve, and so on.

This looks great. I'll be looking forward to the finished product!

Especially the infrastructure and widget sections!

heya,

Looks very cool, I'll definitely be picking up a copy.

However, I noticed in your TOC (https://gist.github.com/883593) that there doesn't seem to be any coverage of Datatable under Widgets.

Is that intentional? It seems like a fairly big omission - the awesome YUI Datatable is one of the first things that actually attracted me to take a look at YUI. Is there any chance some coverage (even if it's "how to use YUI 2.x Datatable in 3.x") hitting this book?

Cheers,
Victor

Hi,

Yes, looks good.

I think 'Application development' could and should be a whole big chapter, rather than a small section under utilities. I'd put App Framework in there, and pay attention to instance management, object destruction etc - especially in 'one-page' apps.

The first place I looked for internationalisation/localisation was in universal accessibility.

No mention of local storage - was expecting something in ajax (or perhaps data management, but doesn't really fit there perhaps).

Worth even a brief chapter on Node.js?

Matt

Hi Victor and Matt --

Thanks, I really appreciate your comments. So that gist is pretty old -- the TOC has evolved since. :)

1. The gist you're seeing has a chapter called "Infrastructure", but its contents are a little different. That chapter now covers Base, Widget, and the new App Framework.

2. Separate from that, there's a chapter named "Widgets" that covers how to *use* various widgets, including DataTable. :)

3. I don't actually have a recipe for the YUI wrapper for storage, but native Local Storage gets used in several recipes.

4. And yes there's a separate chapter for YUI & Node.js. I'm kind of surprised the original gist didn't have that. But I added that way back. :)
