Dojo’s Industrial-Strength Grid Widget (Linux Journal Reprint)

As I was finishing up my slides for the 3 hour Dojo tutorial at OSCON tomorrow, I remembered that I hadn’t posted the source for the Linux Journal article on Dojo’s fab DataGrid that ran in the June 2009 issue. Fortunately for me, Linux Journal posted the source online for this one, so I’ll just go ahead and point you there instead of reproducing that work. It’s laid out nicely, so I hope you enjoy.

If you’re at OSCON, please come out to the dojo.beer() on Wednesday at 7pm and hang out with some of us. I’m here all week, so feel free to look me up if you want to chat about anything.

Dojo Tips and Tricks

Many months ago, I wrote an article for InsideRIA that provided a topical look at some of the more useful things that Dojo provides you entitled Dojo Tips and Tricks. I’d actually forgotten that I even wrote the article so it was a surprise when a colleague wrote me earlier this morning and mentioned it.

It’s a bit more diverse than some drive-by-tutorials in that it digs into DojoX just a little bit and mentions the build system, so even if you’ve been using some of the core tools for a while now, you may still learn a few things from a quick read.

In between the time when the article was finished and now, Dojo has since updated to version 1.3 so you’ll unfortunately see a few CDN URLs that point to version 1.2; however, upgrading the URLs shouldn’t break anything. The latest and greatest is usually a great place to start, so I always encourage folks to stay up to date.

If you’re coming to OSCON this summer, be sure to drop by my 3 hour tutorial for a closer look at many of the great tools that Dojo provides.

Dojo’s Industrial-Strength Grid Widget (Linux Journal, Jun 09)

The latest, greatest copy of Linux Journal features a great primer I put together on Dojo’s really fab grid widget! The content was written a couple of months before the 1.3 release, but the code examples still work just fine with the latest version of 1.2. I start out by briefly introducing some dojo.data fundamentals and then show how the grid leverages these data APIs to do a lot of nifty things.

In early July, I’ll be allowed to reprint the article’s full content here under the terms of a free documentation license, and when that time comes, I’ll make sure it’s updated to work with the latest version of 1.3. In the meanwhile, I hope you enjoy the June edition of Linux Journal and make some time to get up close and personal with the grid widget.

10 Helpings of Dojo Goodness

About halfway through the authoring process of Dojo: The Definitive Guide, I started writing a semi-regular column entitled “Dojo Goodness” that I ran on the O’Reilly Network’s ONLamp site. The gist of the column was to provide short, useful tutorials on various facets of the toolkit that you could put to work right away.

In a lot of ways, this site picks up right where that column left off, except that I hope to provide a lot more value to you through screencasts, links to sample code, etc. In many ways, think of this site as the new and improved version of that column. I have some content I’m working up that I think you’re really going to enjoy, but in the meantime, I wanted to link back to a roundup of the “Dojo Goodness” columns I’ve already written for the sake of continuity.

In a nutshell, here’s the series so far:
