It was a long and painful period - about a month, but I felt if it
were years - of my life which has just closed yesterday evening, when
my very first JS project end of February, and jumped into AJAX at the
beginning of March (with LAMP backend).
I am not a beginner (I don't copy my CV here), therefore I realised,
I've interviewed collegues, friends and unknown dudes. One of them is
contributor of ExtJS and glued to it, another one has made a framework
for himself, then he switched to Prototype and MoTools (his stuff
can't compete with these), my GNU/Linux sysadmin friend, who is not a
programmer, using JQuery for creating tiny utils for himself. (Palm
has choosen Mojo as platform for the new devices, but afaik Mojo is
not a general-purpose fw at all.)
I've set up a plan: 1: in the project, which I am working on, I will
experience, I will overview as many frameworks as I can, and I choose
one then. That almost failed: I'm not a sutpid one, but most of
frameworks are just strange for me. I just don't understand how they
do and what and why. It's possible that only the documentation is not
for absolute beginners, or I am infected by "traditional" libraries. I
was close to the decision that I will create my own framework.
minutes - reading the manifesto and the API doc of the first two
modules - I was sure: that's it. It found the way to my heart.
Perfect, 3 bull's eye from 3 throw. It is like if it's written by me
(well, after 2 years of JS experience, not 2 months).
So, that's my story, thank you for listening, etc.
Is there any Idea Box which I could peek into? I mean where can get
info about planned or halfmade modules, other issues.
