Case study: HPCC Systems

The large companies that use Dojo are widely known. This series features lesser known users of Dojo, and their stories. This time, we interview Gordon Smith from HPCC Systems, a subsidiary of LexisNexis RISK Solutions.

Q: How did you first learn about Dojo?

A: Through Google / Stack Overflow. I suspect my “discovery” of Dojo was a bit different to the norm, as prior to 2013 I had never really done any Web Development. Up until then I was predominantly a C++ Developer, some Java and a smattering of C#. Initially I wanted to knock together a single page proof of concept, consisting of a code editor (CodeMirror), a result view (HTML Table) and an “activity graph” (ActiveX Control) and wanted something that would handle the layout, resizing and ideally something with splitters – after a few searches online I found the Border Container Docs and away I went! Shortly after, I added a Tab Container and switched to using the basic Grid.

Dojo turns (1.)10

Ten years ago, we humbly started a project to create a “next generation DHTML toolkit”, based on an initial email, Selling the future of DHTML. Today, we are pleased to announce the immediate release of Dojo 1.10, our 16th major release of the toolkit!

Release Notes and Documentation

Dojo 1.10 is primarily a stability and bug fix release, with over 275 issues resolved. Read the Dojo 1.10 release notes for the complete list of what’s new and improved in 1.10. API features and enhancements primarily occurred within the following areas:

  • Core (DOM, events, request, WebWorkers, etc.)
  • Dijit
  • dojox/charting and dojox/gfx
  • dojox/app
  • dojox/calendar
  • dojox/mobile (including an iOS 7 theme)
  • dojox/store (offline store supporting WebSQL and IndexedDB support)
  • Uglify 2 support for Dojo builder

The tutorials, reference guide, and API viewer have also been updated for the 1.10 release.

dstore

The new dstore project is being worked on as the eventual successor to dojo/store. It works with Dojo 1.8+, but is intended to also define the object store APIs for Dojo 2. Tutorials and documentation will accompany the dstore 1.0 release that is expected in a few weeks. Read the Looking ahead with stores blog post for more details on the direction of this module.

Grids

As reminder, while the source code is still available for DataGrid and EnhancedGrid, these modules are formally deprecated. We instead recommend that you use dgrid or gridx.

dgrid 0.4 is currently under development, and will be the first component to leverage the new dstore API.

Intern

Intern is the replacement for DOH. Work is currently underway to update all DOH tests in Dojo core and Dijit to use Intern, to make it easier to prevent regressions with Dojo 1.x releases. You can learn more about Intern via the Intro to Intern webcast, and also read What’s next for Intern and the 2.0 release that is expected soon.

What’s Next? 1.10.1, 1.11, and 2.0

We continue working on Dojo 2.0. We continue to issue periodic maintenance releases on 1.4+, primarily to fix issues when new browsers are released. We will likely will have a 1.11 release for anything that might change or enhance an API, or backport key improvements made for 2.0.

Thanks!

Dojo community day!

We’re hosting a free Dojo community day in Switzerland on July 5th, and plan to host similar events in other locations later this year. If you cannot make it to Switzerland, we still encourage you to join us on the #dojo IRC channel (irc.freenode.net) for an afternoon of hacking. We’ll be online from approximately 9am – 6pm in Switzerland. Or join us at another Dojo event this summer.

Thanks!

We hope you’ll find Dojo 1.10 to be exceptionally stable and reliable. Please let us know if you run into any issues by opening a ticket. If you find a problem in the documentation, you can also provide feedback via the link at the bottom of every page. We also encourage you to get involved, to help improve Dojo and to work on Dojo 2.0. We hope you find value in using Dojo 1.10!

Dojo 1.10 release schedule, beta 1 now available

In preparation for the release of Dojo 1.10, trunk is now in feature freeze, which means this code is considered feature complete for Dojo 1.10. The release schedule is currently as follows:

  • May 13: Dojo 1.10.0-beta1
  • May 29: Release candidate 1 (note: if additional beta releases are necessary, each release will push this out by 1 week)
  • June 12: Final release (note: if additional rc releases are necessary, each release will push this out by 1 week)

We encourage you to grab the beta and help us find any bugs or regressions with your code base and report any issues you find by following our contributor workflow.

The documentation for 1.10 has not yet been built, though the API changes from 1.9 are minimal. Work in progress release notes are available to see a highlight of the additions we have made.

Thank you to everyone that has helped make this release a success, including the 61 contributors that have had code land in this release!
