JavaScript - MDC Doc Center JavaScript (JS) is a lightweight, interpreted, or just-in-time compiled programming language with first-class functions. While it is most well-known as the scripting language for Web pages, many non-browser environments also use it, such as Node.js, Apache CouchDB and Adobe Acrobat. JavaScript is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm, dynamic language, supporting object-oriented, imperative, and declarative (e.g. functional programming) styles. Read more about JavaScript. Request Douglas Crockford 2006-04-17 (Updated 2012-08-10) Abstract XMLHttpRequest has a security model that is inadequate for supporting the next generation of web applications. JSONRequest is proposed as a new browser service that allows for two-way data exchange with any JSON data server without exposing users or organization to harm. It exchanges data between scripts on pages with JSON servers in the web. It is hoped that browser makers will build this feature into their products in order to enable the next advance in web application development.

My Life Aquaticby David Leibovic, Sunah Suh A shared aquarium Source code Six JavaScript features we do not need any longer - Wait till I Notice: The following is a “best practice document”. You can follow its advice and live happily ever after, but there might be situations where you cannot apply the ideas mentioned within. This is especially the case when you have to maintain an old product or complex web application. You cannot replace everything in those in one go – as you are very lucky indeed if you get the time and budget – but you can tackle those step by step. According to many web designers at @media2005, JavaScript is sexy again, and in demand. Ajax is the new CSS was a quote in one of the presentations, that – taken out of context – makes my stomach go wonky.

Bernie's Better Animation Class Download animator.js Animator.js was a library I wrote back in 2006 to handle animation on web pages. For a time it was quite ahead of the curve: It was the first library to feature CSS morphing - the ability to smoothly transition between two styles defined as CSS classes. The world of JavaScript has moved on a lot since then. Animator.js has now been incorporated into most of the major JavaScript frameworks, either by directly porting the code (Animator.js is released under a BSD license that allows people to do this) or by borrowing the techniques. Animator.js has served its purpose, and most people will be better served by a general purpose JavaScript framework: I recommend jQuery.

Javascript in Modern Web Design In today's web design, Javascript is a must-have component. Aside from its functionality, Javascript can enhance user experience by creating transitional effects such as fading and sliding animation. Thanks to the open source Javascript frameworks, we don't need to write custom Javascript from scratch anymore. Here are 47 Javascript plugins that you can use to enhance the user experience and functionality of your website. Don't forget to check out the sample sites, which show how the plugins can be used.

Top 10 custom JavaScript functions of all Wednesday Nov 30 2005 UPDATE: For anyone who lands on this article months after the fact, there is now a podcast entry about this article reviewing each and every function. If there was ever a universal common.js shared among the entire develosphere, you'd fine these ten (plus one bonus) functions. It would be the swiss army knife no developer would go into production without. They have no doubt been tested tried and true and have proven usefulness and helpfulness to all those who've used them. Javascript - Noupe Design Blog Pump up da Project: 5 Must-Have JavaScripts (February 2014 Edition) Have you already heard of “You might not need jQuery”? That site created ripples soon after its release a few weeks ago. It suggests that you might be better off targeting modern browser features directly, instead of relying on jQuery to achieve basically the same. Then again, who as a developer can actually determine which browsers will definitely not be used for visiting the project about to be created.

Writing Responsible JavaScript Without a doubt, JavaScript has been making something of a comeback in the last year. If you’re involved in client-side development in any way at all, chances are that you’re finding yourself writing more JavaScript now than you have in a long time. If you learned most of your JavaScript back when DHTML was all the rage and before DOM Scripting was in vogue, there have been some big shifts in the way scripts are written. Most of these are in the way event handlers are assigned and functions declared. Both of these changes are driven by the desire to write scripts that are responsible page citizens, both in not tying behaviour to content and in taking care not to conflict with other scripts. I thought it may be useful to look at some of these more responsible approaches to learn how to best write scripts that are independent of the page content and are safely portable between different applications.

15 Javascript Web UI Libraries, Frameworks and Toolkits Almost all of the rich web applications that we currently see on the web today rely on a subtle set of UI controls, libraries or frameworks (or toolkits) that not only greatly simplify application development, they also provide a consistent, reliable, and highly interactive User Interface. What more could you ask for? Currently, there are a wide varied range of Web UI frameworks covering varied languages – for today we will focus on Javascript Web UI libraries. Not all libraries are suited for every project, but most developers will still rely on a single UI framework, a faithful friend they will always turn to in times of need… …so, if you are looking for a fresh UI outlook, below you will find the best 15 Javascript Web UIs, all offering, to different degrees, solutions.

Performance tips for JavaScript 3 performance tips for JavaScript As our JavaScript applications get larger and ever more sophisticated, the need for efficient scripting becomes increasingly important and hard to bypass. Back in the days when all that JavaScript could do was change your document's background color, or validate a simple form, abuse in terms of efficiency in our codes was common, with the browser not having a problem with it at all.
